Happy Day

Well, the past 2 nights have been great. Micah has been eating and going right back to sleep throughout the night, for up to 3-4 hours at a time. We are fans of babywise. We didn't start Cara on the semi-scheduled thing until she was a month old, and that night she slept 6 hours straight. So we've been slowly transitioning Micah to that. Basically, it's eat, awake, THEN asleep. He's been doing it for 2 days straight and so far the 2 nights have been wonderful. He's so happy and alert when he's awake. Yesterday late afternoon/early evening he was fussy for a good while. Our kids have pooping issues (mainly, that they don't go but every 4-5 days when they're babies, sometimes longer, which our pediatrician says is normal up to 7 days). So we had to help him along last night, since it had been since Monday evening when he did it last. He made 2 dirty diapers, but was still fussy. Come to find out this morning, he's got what looks like a little infection on his finger. We cut his super long nails on Tuesday, and Daddy got him a little close on one finger. Now, it looks a little bad, so we put neosporin on it with a mitten, and that has seemed to help. Plus, today he pooped all on his own! I know, TMI, but it was a happy day :). Here's a new picture.
