(These are a tad out of order. I’m trying to catch up.)
Thankful for my relatively easy-going baby. There will surely be payback in the form of an out-of-control toddler or a high-maintenance second baby, but for right now, I’m enjoying this time. Even our bedtime routine is enjoyable since I figured out that the best way to get through a lotion-and-pjs session is to sing while I’m doing it. Yells are replaced by smiles and giggles. Then it’s story time and if he doesn’t start dozing before the end of the book (which has happened a few times), he rolls over and falls right to sleep within less than five minutes. It’s fantastic.
