15 Weeks, 2 Days/ 2 Years, 2 Months, 3 Weeks, 4 Days
Now that i'm back to posting more regularly i'm trying to capture the little details that happend on our trip. One thing that i believe ranked right up there was all the new toys that Henry received. He was particularly into trucks (still is really) and was overjoyed at the "My first remote control car" that he received from Aunt Tammie. Henry had a great time with it and even got decent at figuring out how to make it go forward or back up when it got into a tight spot. One of his best new words was "my mote" which he would yell whenever he wanted to play with it.
Henry also got to enjoy "treats" much more with Nonna than at home. He helped Aunt Tammie bake a cake for the fourth of July and got to have a piece (which honestly lasted about 3 sittings), sampled popscicles and sno cones for the first time, and had his share of animal crackers.
I didn't witness it but by all accounts Henry helping decorate the cake was a hoot. They had frosted it and Tammie was trying to teach Henry how to shake sprinkles all over it. He would shake, shake, shake his head and them just dump the sprinkles all in one place. It actually wound up looking kind of like fireworks, and Henry was very pleased with his handiwork.
Silas had his best day yet with Brenda. She said she thinks it took him a few days to get used to all the noise and kids, but today he was just happy as a clam, didn't cry at all, and slept a lot and soundly. I'm hoping if he can get into a good nap routine during the day it will help our case at night.
He's moving along pretty well at night though. We're down to only one 4 am feeding, and i'm in the process of reducing it by 3 minutes every 3 days. He's still been waking up around 2, but last night after i gave him the pacifier he went right back to sleep and slept until 4 when he woke up to eat. Once we've eliminated his night feedings, i'm going to sleep downstairs and JT is going to soothe him when he wakes up during the night. Sweet uninterrupted sleep, you're only 10 days away!
