Dancing : )

I went dancing last night at the DCS weekly dance and had a blast : ) Joseph stayed home with Bubby. He danced with our little one while I was on my way out the door. I asked if I could take a picture of it or video tape it, but he said no : ( It was a beautiful picture. Wish you could have seen it.

Be Consistant

I know that being consistant is one of the most important things in being a parent. It's very apparent with nap time. I just need to keep reminding myself, be consistant!!!

Sleeping

JT has not been taking naps except during nursing for quite a few weeks now. I've known he's needed more sleep and better sleep but I didn't know what to do. What everyone has said keeps running through my mind. There's so much conflicting advice. The past couple days I've been thinking about what I said about toddlers who won't take a nap or go to bed at night. I kept saying, "I'd make them." I finally decided today that JT is going to take his naps today. This mornings nap was difficult and only lasted 30 minutes but he was still in his own bed. Then he started crying again, tired as can be. So I put him down. Man was that hard. I had to calm him but the only thing that worked was breast feeding. I had to keep him awake or all my earlier efforts were for not. He wasn't eating because he was hungry and he was falling asleep quickly. So I took him off and tried calming him again since he started crying right away. I finally just had to put him down and let him be. After about 5 minutes, his crying started waning and after about 15 minutes it stopped altogether. We now will be reading a story before bed time each nap. You Are My Miracle by Maryann K. Cusimano Love (Author), Satomi Ichikawa (Illustrator) GREAT BOOK : ) It's definitely a mommy and me book.

More JT pix


Modest JT


Loves the bath


Tummy Time
...Shortly after this pic when I was putting away the camera, the crying ceased. I walked quietly back in the room afraid he'd start crying if he heard me. To my horror, he was on his back. The first time he rolls over and I miss it!!!!! : (
