Sami gets the hiccups almost every day. Our Tunisian friend said it's lucky for babies to get hiccups. He doesn't seem to mind, unlike Ali, who hates them. I realized that all those very steady, rythmic kicks I felt for months when Sami was still inside were probably just hiccups.
Right now he's sleeping squished up against my breast. If I put him down, I'm sure he'll wake up, so I'm letting him sleep here. I'll have to get ready for bed when I want to put him down so that he can cuddle up next to me. It's the only way he stays asleep so far.
*Hipo is Spanish for hiccups. Don't pronounce the H. Doesn't it sound fun?
