Lent started yesterday and I already notice a difference in how my day goes.
Instead of using Veggie Tales or Baby Einstein to keep Little Dude busy for 30 minutes, I have been playing with him or having him play by himself.
He seems a little bored sometimes, so I decided to play some Veggie Tales music.
He perked up, at first – then he looked around and didn’t see Bob & Larry.
By the time the tune got through:
“If you like to talk to tomatoes
If a squash can make you smile…”
He was bright-red and whaling… ummm, sorry Little Dude! I don’t have a Bob or Larry… not even a real tomato or cucumber you can look at. I have a stuffed bear? A stuffed moose? A ball?!
So I turned Veggies Tales music off and called Coral & Summer over to distract Little Dude.
*whew* saved by the dogs!
Needless to say, I won’t be playing those tunes again anytime soon.
On another note, he has been taking VERY short naps in the last month or so. Maybe 30-60 minutes twice a day. Usually no longer than 45 minutes at a time…. well today (after no TV), he is just now waking up from a 2 hour & 45 minute nap! He might even go longer, but I see him wiggle around on the baby cam as I wrap up this blog post.
Thank you Jesus! If this is what it takes to get my baby to nap well, I’m sold!
