There's a calming technique we've been using recently and I have no idea why we didn't utilize it sooner! I think I first heard about it back in college (my degree is in Early Childhood Edication and I think it was discussed in one of my infant classes) but I had forgotten about it. It's called "The 5 S's" from The Happiest Baby On The Block. Here is a segment on it from The View:
I seriously SWEAR by this technique. Every new mother should know about it. If you try it, let me know what you think! I'll try to get some video of us using it on Ayden during our next fussy day. I'm telling you, you'll be amazed!

We LOVE swaddle me's!
David made sure I had some me time today!! I did some yoga and painted my nails. It made me feel rejuvenated :). Ayden got hungry in the middle of it so I stopped my yoga for a feeding break but I was able to finish once I got him settled again (with the 5 S's actually). We had a pretty low key day We just hung around in our PJs, both did some computer work and just hung out as a little family of 3. Tomorrow is grocery day. I'm going to try to do grocery haul/what's for dinner videos this week. I'll be sure to post them on here if I do!
