Bye John!

John left for the long trek to Alberta on Monday. Here are some pics of saying goodbye and such.






















He made it to Stirling on Thursday night and only almost got in one accident. I'm glad he made it there safely...and that all our stuff is still intact. It's almost been a week since he's been gone, and I miss him so much already. Hadley misses him too. She keeps saying "Where's Dad?", or "I wanna go shopping with Daddy"(said in a whiny voice.) Only 17 more days until he comes back. Just in time for my birthday!

This week I started feeding the boys rice cereal. They seem to like it and I think it has helped them sleep through the night. That, and the Baby Whisperer. I was having to "super bounce" Brian to go to sleep, and frankly was getting sick of it, so I decided that I needed to implement the teachings of the Baby Whisperer. No more bouncing, rocking, etc. And he hardly cries anymore when he goes to sleep. So....I think that's all the excitement pretty much. Here's more pictures.

kind of. I swaddle him, then sit with him for a bit, then lay him down. If he cries, I pick him up and the second he stops crying, I lay him back down. That usually makes it worse though, so I just lay him down and keep my hand on his tummy and say "It's okay, you're just going to sleep", etc. It works wonderfully. He's been sleeping much better at night, and he has longer naps during the day.

I have to say that the baby whisperer lady must be some kind of genious or something- it works like a charm every time!!!Mom
