Hollis Sleep Dance

If you can read this, your parents likely didn’t have a video monitor aimed at you while you slept. Too bad for you. These things are as indispensable as microwave ovens or in-dash navigation.
If Hollis’ mom & dad hear a cry, our first reaction is *not* to run to the baby’s room, but instead the immediate behavior is now to pick up the nearest phone or tablet and fire up the Dropcam app to look in on our little non-sleeper.
The electric eye lets us know if it’s a simple binkie loss that might correct itself, or a larger issue. 99% of the time it’s binkie-related. Occasionally, we see Hollis enjoying her crib time to herself, maybe singing or playing with Mr. Monkey.
This clip captured a very elaborate sleep-dance in the middle of one recent night.

0:08 the first stirrings
0:18 I’m up / I’m down
0:29 butt circles
0:44 butt circles part deux
1:09 – I’m up again, no wait, I’m really down this time
1:49 – I’m up again and can I tell you how much I love this monkey?!
2:35 – bright eyes, mugging for the camera
3:00 – I’m up, might be for good this time
3:10 “down goes Frazier – down goes Frazier”!
3:11 (one second later) zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  1. Ahhh yes! The Secret Life of Babies! Who knew what went on after the lights went out and the door was closed. I always thought my little darlings were sound asleep and now I know that they were probably dancing and singing and loving up on monkeys, or lambs or bears…………..!
