Anthony has given up the pacifier during the day, and now he only uses it when he is in his crib. It was a really easy transition. Mostly I did it because he has become quite the good hider, and come nap or night time, I was having a hard time finding it. So I decided that it will stay in the bed from now on. Surprisingly he doesn't seem to mind, I used to have to take it from him in the morning, but now he throws it back in the crib when I pick him up. However, now I have noticed that his finger seems to find it's way to his mouth when he's thinking about it. Every once in a while he will find Bella's pacifier and try to sneak it in his mouth, but if he sees me looking at him, he wont do it. Sadly for me, Bella doesn't even like her pacifier, but I keep trying.
Bella has not had any type of routine to her days yet, but the last 3 days she seems to have a trend going. She wakes up nice and early, usually 6 or 7 and is wide awake (unfortunately that means I am too) and then falls back asleep just about the time Anthony wakes up for the day. Which means I don't get to go back to sleep. I usually leave her in my bed while Anthony and I go downstairs and have breakfast. It's not terrible, but it makes for a really short night for me.
She doesn't sleep in my bed all night, just a few hours in the morning. She is still sleeping in the bathroom with the fan on. Either in her car seat, or her bassinet. She looks pretty comfy here.
Anthony got his 3rd haircut yesterday. He was a big boy this time and sat in the chair all by himself. He was given a ring pop to suck on and he was perfect. If she needed him to turn his head a certain way I just grabbed the ring pop and tugged it in the right direction and since the pop never left his mouth, his head moved too. Only problem was he drooled a little bit, okay a lot, and then the hair clippings stuck to his neck. So when we got home he had sticky hair stuck all over his face and neck. So his cousin Kirsten, who was over visiting, helped me give him a bath. All clean and smelling good. Aren't those just the cutest little legs?
Here Bella's favorite way to nap... being held of course.
And in honor of Earth Day, I bought these yesterday. They are reusable water bottles. There are 5 total, and you refill and reuse them everyday. Aren't they cute? Also, I need a new blog title, Baby Boy just doesn't work anymore. So I am brainstorming for ideas, any suggestions?? I am hoping very soon to update my blog look. Just waiting for some free time and inspiration!
