so as most of you know, i have had to rock ashton to sleep every nap time and usually to bed. it would not have been that bad if he would let me rock him in my sweet and comfy rocking chair. however, he liked to be rocked up and down- so i would do some squats while "rocking" him and then lunges, etc. he weighs more than 15 lbs now so it was quite a workout for me. i just couldn't do it anymore. my MIL suggested i just stop- of course! just put him down with some music and let him cry it out. well the first few times he would roll around, get stuck, cry, roll some more and so on. but yesterday, i noticed he was getting a little sleepy so i put him down right away, wrapped him up and put some tunes on. well, he went right to sleep! and today, he only fussed once and unwrapped himself once and now he is asleep. thank you josh groban and babba!

projects i am working on:
1. fabric bows for ava (sorry miss- my house needed some tlc after darrin and your mom's visit- i was never home and it was neglected)
2. organize pantry! its driving me nuts- does anyone have a good way of going about this?
3. office- ahh! this one is huge

i'll concentrate on those for now.

oh my gosh. what a boring post!
here is something to keep you entertained.

1. he is doing that thing with his nose (he scrunches it and huffs) haha

2. he always sees the camera- he has like a 6th sense of knowing when a camera is around

your mother in law is def about tough love! im sure she'll have lots of that kind of advice for me too..maybe that's why we are a little tough and don't like to be touched when we sleep!! glad he is sleeping good now :)

isn't it an incredible feeling when you can put them down awake and they fall asleep on their own? hannah used to always have to be bounced, too, and she would only sleep for 30 minutes at a time... i hated doing it, but i finally had to let her cry and now she takes three naps a day, each at least an hour long, if not two! it was one of the hardest things i've ever done, but the outcome was incredible and she loves me just as much, if not more. :)

your house projects sound fun. i feel like i always have projects too, and they're hard to get done! those everyday wife and mom duties take a lot of time. good luck with them! let me know if you figure out a way to organize your pantry. mine drives me crazy too, but i don't know how to fix it!
