This little boy's name is Preston. His grandparents go to my church and his parents are on vacation this week so his grandparents are sitting. His mom, Caroline, reads my blog and she e-mailed me to let me know that she was excited they would be in the nursery together and wanted her mother to take their picture. So I took one for her! They make a cute couple don't you think? (This is about as good as I could get of them together).
Sarah Kate and Wells - they are two active cuties - they are both turning one this month and I just can't believe it! Harper did good in the nursery this morning (I think the nursery workers are on to the fact that she is "SLIGHTLY" high maintenance). I don't think anyone will be calling her an "easy" baby. I went to feed her between church and Sunday School and she wasn't too happy so I decided to just stay in the nursery with her while Scott went to Sunday School. It was fun to be in there because there were 8 babies - all of our friends' kids. And there are 4-5 more who will be joining them (or weren't there) soon! I love watching them all grow!
1. At what age did you put your baby in their own room? I plan on waiting until Harper is 6 months old (for some reason I've made that the magic age - we are going to wait on solids until she is 6 months, her own bed at 6 months, surgery on her extra toe at 6 months - it's like I think she will turn a big corner at that point?) Her room is just across the house from us and it seems like so far away. I want her to be sleeping through the night a little better also. I don't want to jinx myself but she has had two REALLY WONDERFUL nights of sleep so I'll try to get a 3rd night before I brag on her.
(well - I just messed up - we are going to be back to every 2 hours now). ha!
2. Did you get your baby a jumperoo and would you get one all over again? Did it really work/help?
I've heard a lot of good things and I'm tempted to get one for her but then again - I feel like we have a house full of big baby entertainers and she doesn't like any of them. I don't want to throw money down the tube again. So far the only thing that she really enjoys is me holding her. ha! She is a girl after my own heart though - she LOVES to shop. If I put her in her stroller and take her to stores - any store - she will be as content as can be. She just looks around and is so happy. So we try to go somewhere every day. I rarely buy anything - I just enjoy looking and keeping her happy! :-)
Thanks in advance for all of your tips - I'm going to be back soon with all kinds of surveys and questions!
