It may have been made easier by the great afternoon/evening we had yesterday.
I got home at 4:15 after hauling ass through traffic and cursing the people in front of me who had the nerve to follow the speed limit when I was rushing home to see my baby. I dashed into the house and found Andrew being calmed by MIL. She was appeasing him until I could get home to nurse him.
I was feeding him when J got home from work. He skipped the gym since he was going riding instead. In the 100+ degree heat. Good plan.
So Andrew and I hung out a bit and I finally put the crib soother in to see if he liked it. It looks like he does:
And no - I don't put him sideways in his crib like that all the time. I just wanted to see if he would watch the toy.
I nursed him again and then dragged him to the grocery store to get some stuff. He was a perfect angel in his carseat the whole time. Unlike the 4 year old there with his mom who was walking through the store screaming at the top of his lungs and having a temper tantrum.
We had a nice evening at home after dinner. After bathtime and more nursing he was down in his crib for night #3.
8 hours and 47 minutes later he was up this morning ready for a new day. Hopefully the rest of this day goes fast because I can't wait to get home to see this:
Damn, I love this kid.
