Ian not having to be held............................PRICELESS!!!
With so much family around lately, Ian has decided that he really likes being held...ALL the time. He despises the couch, cries on the boppy pillow, and pretty much hates the swing. My friend Amanda made me a sling, but we're still trying to figure it out. He's a great baby in arms, but I just can't hold him all of the time. In a pile of mail that we forgot to actually look at, we just found a heaven sent gift card to Target from Jason and Erica. Off I went to find a bouncer. It was worth a shot! I decided to go out on a limb and try a new one that doesn't vibrate, but actually bounces the baby. Accompanied by the sounds of the ocean, we have found great success! Okay, so this is the first time we've tried it, but here I sit typing - all by my lonesome.
Another worthy note - Ian let me sleep for 4 whole hours in a row last night. That was quite the accomplishment, given that I've been averaging 4-5 broken up hours of sleep a night - total.
Given these two new developments, I'm off to happily do some laundry!
