Conked out Baby

So today or shall I say early, early this morning (around 3:40am), Josiah woke up and wouldn't go back to sleep. Sometimes I sleep through his wakings at night, but this time he seemed genuinely irritated at something, so I went in to comfort him. At first, he sat with me in the chair very still and it seemed he would go back to sleep. However, soon he started talking and that was the indication that he was too awake to sleep. So I tried putting him back in the crib (like 4am now) and that wasn't popular at all. So then I brought him in with me to the guest room to sleep, which equates to him swimming around on the bed, and landing on my head from time to time as he flails around. Not exactly conducive to me falling to sleep again. So, I resigned to let him play while I laid down on the couch in the living room. This didn't last however, because he was hungry. So I gave him some grapes and some yogurt to eat. He is really getting masterful at this spoon thing, but he cheats at the end by grabbing the yogurt left in the bowl with his hand. He is learning though and getting better each time we try it. After he ate, then he played while I took a cat nap. Around 9am or so he seemed hungry again and rightfully so since he ate at 5am, and so I gave him some toast and half a banana. I went back to the couch to work on some things for my group lesson I am giving on Saturday and I noticed it was awfully quiet over there, so I went back and found that he had finished his toast, but had fallen asleep in the high chair. Too funny! Even after I took the picture, and cleaned him up he still didn't wake until I removed the tray. Then he wanted a swig of his milk and afterward I brought him to his crib to which he gladly welcomed this time.
