We have learned that when Mitchell is ready to sleep, he'll definitely let us know. He is alot like his Daddy in that he sleeps best when he's in his own bed at home. When he gets tired he almost instantly falls asleep when we lay him down in his crib. But unlike his Daddy and more like his Mommy, he absolutely loves his blankets and pillows. Every time we lay him down he reaches up for a blanket to wrap his arms around and rub his little face in to put himself to sleep.
He has also recently been wiggling around until his head is either in between or on top of his crib pillows. He obviously enjoys the comforts of his crib and will no doubt be a high maintenance sleeper.
As I watch him settle into his sleeping routine, I know this is something that I will always remember about him as he grows older and moves out of his crib. I know that someday when we make the switch to a "big boy bed" I will be sad because he will no longer have the need to do these sweet things to put himself to sleep. But for now, I'll just take this time to enjoy how precious he looks when he reaches up for his blanket right before he drifts off to sleep.
This was Mitchell's first visit with his new friends! Will Zuber and Evylee & Kenzlee Terry are going to be Mitchell's buddies...when he's old enough to sit up and play!
The Bumbo Seat!
We have discovered that Mitchell loves sitting up and seeing the world from a "big boy" point of view. His new Bumbo seat has quickly become one of his favorite things to do. He loves watching and listening to us talk to him while he's sitting up just like us!
Brad and I have been married a little over eight years. He works for TVA and I am a teacher. We have recently had a baby boy who we named Mitchell. Right now we are excited about where our lives are headed and we are working to be the best parents we can be. God has truly blessed us with everything that we have!
