Guess who slept "through the night" again last night...
I woke up feeling very productive this morning. I went downstairs, had breakfast, took care of the pets, pumped a little milk for our freezer stash, put Ayden down for his morning nap (40 minutes in his crib again!) then took a shower. Ayden woke up while I was getting ready and was ready to eat so I fed him and finished getting ready. When he was ready to nap again he got a little fussy as usual. I laid him in his crib and started putting the Moby on and I swear he stopped fussing when he saw me get it out. This is the second time this has happened. Is it possible that he knows what it is/what it means? Sometimes he'll fuss a little when he first gets in and will fight going to sleep; but both times that he stopped fussing to watch me put it on he snuggled right in, hung out awake for a bit then quietly dozed off like it had been what he had been wanting all along. Maybe I'm wrong, though. He could just like watching me wrestle all that fabric? Either way, it's always fun when he hangs out awake in it for a while making his cute baby noises and looking around all wide eyed. One of my favorite parts of baby wearing is showing him the world as I go about my business.

Once he did finally fall asleep, I decided to take advantage and nap myself. I got about 30 minutes in (he got about an hour). I love napping with him. We don't usually co-sleep at night so daytime naps are when I can get that extra snuggle/bonding time. I still have fond memories of napping with my mom when I was little. I hope Ayden continues to like it for the next several years.
That nap was just the ticket because I made it all the way to bedtime without feeling like the living dead! When David got home we headed to a local Cross Fit establishment to check out the facility and membership details. We still haven't decided if we are going to join... When we got home we did the shoulders and arms P90X workout:
Then made marinated venison steaks with asparagus for dinner.

I'm going to have to use the sling more now that it's getting so hot.!
