We went into the city for our Pride celebration last weekend. Met up with Teaberry and family, and other friends of theirs. It was stiflingly hot, but all the babes did wonderfully. We had Curly in the E.r.go carrier, and he was completely distracted by everything going on around him, and feeling comfortable and worn out enough near the end that he actually started to nod off. This is MAJOR for us, since he usually has a hard time sleeping outside of a crib. If this keeps up, doing things with him in the carrier will make our lives a lot easier…as long as we don’t stop moving that is! We kept giving Curly sips of our fresh-squeezed lemonade, which he loved, as well as plain water from his own straw cup. We spent a lovely 3 hours out before returning home.
On the daycare front, we are still very happy with the ‘new’ place, and as an added bonus, the past two drop-off days have been tear-free. Curly’s new thing is to lunge at Nutella for a hug and cuddle when she puts him down, but then put up a strong front when she gets up to leave. I wouldn’t be surprised if there were more tear-filled mornings ahead, but perhaps we’ve turned a corner?
