New Toy and Some Firsts

We finally received and put together my glider and ottoman. It was one of those things that I thought we wouldn't need with the baby, not to mention we didn't have anywhere to put it. As I started having some soreness in my ankles, hips and back from rocking Marshall to sleep on my feet, we decided to give the glider a go. We spent Sunday rearraging our bedroom to make a space for it next to Marshall's crib. It now looks like Marshall actually has a little nursery to himself in the corner of our bedroom. It will be nice when we finally have our own house for him to have his own room.

Hadley, of course, felt he needed to try it out for approval.


New Glider


Does it work, you ask? Well, Marshall and I did take a 3 hour nap in it this afternoon. I think it will make feedings a lot easier than trying to do them on the bed or couch.

Now for some Baby Firsts...

Monday evening, Marshall lifted his head and shoulders up an then rolled from his stomach onto his back. This was after he grabbed is pacifier and held onto it for a few minutes. After he was on his back he tried very hard to get back over on his stomach but it was not in the cards that night.

I've been thinking about putting his exersaucer together to see if he's ready for it since he's been moving his arms and legs a lot lately. That might be a project for this weekend :)

Hi Amanda Following from Bloggy Moms Biracial babies group. Your little one is adorable. I think you should pur the exersaucer(sp?) thing together. I put mine in it at 3 or 4 months and they were so happy to just be sitting during the day. I'm following your blog now too :)

Amanda - That is too funny - we did & said the same thing about the glider. I swore I wouldn't need one and then we ended up getting one once julianna was about a month old... What an awesome thing!
It made morning & bedtime feedings sooo much easier and comfortable. I would recommend it for every mom! (We too had to rearrange her room to fit it! LOL)
