Today was such a great day! I have no idea what forces aligned to cause this, but if I knew how to replicate it I would do this every day! Other than a tiny bit of frustration at the very end of his bath, today was a 100% tear-free, fuss-free, cry-free day! IT WAS AWESOME!
Seriously, today was great. Jace woke up super happy. We played for 3 hours, then he napped really well (45 minutes + 45 minutes). After his nap, he woke up happy and played for about 3.5 hours, then napped again (45 minutes + 30 minutes). He woke up happy again and we played for another 3+ hours before starting bath time. And now he’s asleep – and has been sleeping by himself for over 45 minutes. YAY! SUCH a good day!
After attacking me, Cody decided to come play. Jace likes kicking the sides of his crib, and Cody would bat at Jace’s feet every time they’d appear near him. It was cute and kept all of us entertained.
Cuervo is still pretty jealous of Jace. When I lay a blanket on the floor for Jace to play on, Cuervo doesn’t understand why I won’t let him sit on it. Plus, Jace got some new toys that roll, bounce, light up, or squeak. Cuervo definitely thinks those belong to him. In any case, when I stood today to take a picture of Jace, Cuervo made sure to take the opportunity to position himself between me and Jace. He sat down and his tail was right at grabbing/ chewing height for Jace. Cuervo was less than thrilled with the results. *Cuervo ran away before Jace could actually get the tail in his mouth – but Jace did have a pretty good grip on it for a while and Cuervo spent the rest of the morning on the bed with Adam….*
When Adam got up, he came to play in the nursery too. Jace was so cheerful!

Lastly, because I love this type of picture, here’s a size comparison. Jace was in the swing yesterday and I couldn’t believe how big he looked.
