First let me start by saying that i think Henry got through his little sleep blip. He slept for 13 hours last night with just one peep (and he talked himself back to sleep in just a few minutes) and today he took a 3 hour nap in the morning which had me poking him just to make sure he was okay.
Tabitha and her kids came over to catch up for a few hours this morning and although Henry was asleep basically the entire visit, we managed to squeeze in just a few pictures of the three of them together at the very end.
After marveling at how well Helen plays on her stomach, i'm redoubling my efforts around Henry. The one limitation we still have is that if he's just eaten (even after we make sure to burp him) he pretty much spits up a decent amount. This didn't affect Helen but Henry is still a spitter so his stomach time is somewhat limited by this. Of course he doesn't really care but our washing machine occasionally protests.
I did discover that he kept himself entertained quite well when i put him down with a mirror he has. He talked and laughed at himself for quite awhile and then when he knocked the mirror over on himself he proceeded to explore the smooth surface of the mirror with his mouth.
By the way, we're in the middle of quite a snow experience. We got about 8 inches yesterday and then it flurried again this morning and has been snowing pretty steadily since late this afternoon. The weather said accumulations of an inch this evening but we went out to dinner tonight and drove and there was at least an inch on our car just in the time we were inside the restaurant.
