We are Swingers!

My boys are SO wonderful and let mommy sleep in this morning with the baby and I feel like a NEW person! Benjamin awoke about 6am and when he was done feeding, I was still SO very sleepy that instead of immediately getting up and starting breakfast (which I had fully intended to do), I crawled right back into bed and crashed out. I did not wake up until 9:30 a.m. It was SO very much therapeutic and I woke up in the BEST MOOD! Sleep is something you need to be "normal" (whatever THAT is!)

One of the treats I let Josh undertake today was learning to do a project from scratch by instructions and parts only with no input from me. What was his project? No other than the new swing I got from Babies R Us. One huge bonus they have started to do now is include an AC adapter so no more using 5,629 D-sized batteries every month just to operate it. GENIUS! I couldn't be more thrilled.

Little Ben is sleeping soundly, rocking in his swing right now thanks to his big brother, Josh. Pictures to follow (once I take some -- eating lunch was more important!) Ha!

GO JOSH!! Swings are essential...we love the one in our house too. Its the BEST daytime sleeping spot for a little guy when the big brother is so very noisy! lol

That's so great that he loves the swing and a great improvement over batteries too. You'll appreciate that if he keeps up with the swinging.
