Two big “firsts” today!
1. We tried sweet potatoes! Jace wasn’t really sure what he thought. He definitely seemed to prefer the rice cereal – but maybe it’s just that sweet potatoes were new today. His expressions were pretty cute! We’ll try sweet potatoes again tomorrow.
2. Jace is sleeping in the nursery! He was incredibly distracted with the new room when we first started “bedtime” tonight. The lights were super low (the only light came from the Twilight Turtle), but I guess Jace hadn’t checked out the nursery in the dark before. Finally, I put him in his crib and left the room thinking (haha) that he might just fall asleep on his own. He spent the next 20 minutes squealing in excitement, giggling, and talking in his crib. I have no idea what was so exciting. Finally, he started yelling (not crying, just yelling!), so I picked him up and moved him back to our bedroom, like usual. Once he fell asleep, we moved him into the nursery. It’s a big step – Jace’s first night in his crib!
Jace still seems to think books are designed solely as chew toys. There is one book – Baby Faces – that captures his attention pretty well, especially if we lay down to read it. My arms are longer and he can’t reach to take the book out of my hand! He does love staring at those baby faces!
We rearranged the nursery! I finally got my desk out of Jace’s room (and moved it into Adam’s room), so the nursery is now 100% Jace’s stuff. I still want to rearrange the things on the walls, but I’m liking the new layout.
