yup...that's a pretty good sign
Do I torture them? Certainly not! They have a nice warm spot on the very beanbag my own kids have been banned from touching AND they are the center of attention for at least two hours. Not to mention any little cry and they are offered a feeding or some holding time. They are encouraged to sleep. Come to think of it - I think I might like to switch positions with them for a try.

Sweet, soft and very new ... and not very interested in spending his afternoon with me and my lights, thank you very much. That's ok though - 'cause I can work with the ones that would rather be anywhere else. I can and I did ... and this is what I got...
see... it wasn't so bad was it sweet boy?
and now... because it is 2:45am ... I agree with you, little one! I'm off to bed too. Sweet dreams.
