Quiet morning

It is really quiet around here.  Mason is at school.  Miles is watching a movie.  Max is napping.

Love it!

It has been a long week. I am realizing that as Max gets older, life is getting more difficult.  He is awake more.  He is not content to just sit (in his highchair, swing, bouncy, etc) and watch the craziness that is our house.  He wants to interact, to be a part, to have a toy, to eat (oh, the eating schedule....!!! don't get me started!), to be stimulated.  He is close to sitting up and when that happens, it will help me out.  Right now, he has to lay to play.  He doesn't like to lay and play for very long.  The sling is quickly becoming my friend.

He is napping about 2x per day.  Unfortunately, no two days look alike in our house, so he has to be flexible with nap times, length, location.  Nights have been rough.

Separation anxiety.  Neither Mason or Miles really had this. Sure, they would cry occasionally when I drop them off at church or MDO.  But, after about 15 seconds they would move on and have fun.  Now I get paged almost every single time I drop Max off at church.  He is also up quite a bit at night again.
