Benjamin loves to "party" from around ten to around one or two am. Note: this does not make for happy parents. Josh is a saint and often takes the brunt of this shift. Often this entails what I have come to call the "Jammie Jiggle." Benjamin strongly prefers to be held vertically. I think he has a bit of reflux and gas issues going on and this position helps. He also loves to be jiggled/bounced to sleep. At night Ben gets really worked up and to help him relax Josh holds him up to his shoulder and trots through our room, across the hall and through Ben's room and back. More often than not this puts Ben to sleep, if only for a short time and then the ritual starts again.
