We had Francois in the house, and I’d bring him out for floor time occasionally around 4 months, but I don’t think it had any impact. Around 6 months we started putting Francois’ in Ryan’s crib for every nap and bedtime. He just took to him! It’s been convenient to have more than one now that he’s attached. We don’t typically take F out of the house with us, unless we’re going somewhere I expect Ryan to sleep (like on the plane to Mexico).
Though a friend told me, after reading this post, that her daughter never had a lovey. Maybe that’s the easiest route there is!
Today is the best kind of weekday morning! I didn’t set an alarm, and Ryan is still sleeping in to that point that I’ve gotten myself 100% ready without having to keep him occupied. And I don’t have an early meeting/flight, so I can let him sleep as long as he wants. Day is off to a great start!
Cousins Club at the Portland Children’s Museum this past weekend was a hit. The boys wore each other out, playing in water, building, digging and acting. No surprise, the water was Ry’s fave, followed by digging in recycled rubber pits. I have to say, these boys are extremely well-behaved. They’re toddlers and I know Jess would say they have their moments, but really, such sweethearts. I’m so grateful for the example they set for Ryan.
And! A very nice man gave us these really cool clips to affix our lens caps to our camera straps while using our cameras. It’s called a hufa holder and I love it already.
