Today I adjusted Henry’s crib to its toddler bed position in the hopes of making it more appealing to him for bedtime. Actually Henry “helped” with the conversion by wielding the screwdriver (causing Jacqui a lot of stress) so now he seems to have a stake in the project and for this first night at least, is using it.
It’s a little quieter here after the family visit. My mom and sister left yesterday to return to their own homes and we already miss them. I suspect they’re also experiencing Henry-withdrawl since both have texted or called to check up on him.
In addition to helping out with the feeding and diaper changing, one of the most helpful things our family visitors accomplished was getting Henry’s room in order. Jacqui and I were so distracted with caring for Henry that we had procrastinated setting up his nursery. Thanks to my mom (for generously buying the crib), my niece (for helping to assemble it) and my sister (for being the catalyst to overcome our procrastination), Henry’s room is almost complete with the exception of a few decorative details.
