Hangry Like a Wolf

For the past two nights, Link has slept through the night without his late feeding, which is a bittersweet development if it holds. On one hand, it will be nice not to have to deal with him in the middle of the night, on the other hand he is waking up a little earlier and I'll miss that lil' warm pizza dough on my shoulder every night after burps. It is nice that he wakes up earlier (despite my exhaustion) because it means he gets a chance to see Vv in the morning, which has been a rarity for the past several months. The unexpected side effect is he is waking up hangry like a wolf (misspelling intentional, I'm sure most of you are familiar with the non-word hangry which is hungry+angry). The usually loud tyrant is once again bringing out the red-tailed hawk scream for use in his less than cordial requests for breakfast. It's like having a wild animal in the house, this morning I sliced up an avocado first thing and threw it at him just to buy myself enough time to make my coffee and some more breakfast for him. Poor J Bean is second fiddle for breakfast, but she's happy to play with her toys until her stomach starts to rumble. Honestly, I think I'm going to stop referring to J Bean as one of the tyrants for now because she has been the model child for the past few months. I'm sure the phase will pass eventually but the name which was originally hers will be passed like an Olympic torch to Link for the time being. Don't worry J Bean, he'll make you proud and he learned from one of the best.
