Normally, Thursday is the day that I always post my soapy tutorials. And, fear not, I have one for this week but I’m running behind for the day (Soap Queen TV shoots this weekend and we’re rebuilding the set right now) so, I’m hoping that the sight of a cute baby will distract you.
See! Distracted! You didn’t even notice that you were on a soap blog looking for a soap project, did you?
Jamisen is close to 15 pounds and is sooooo close to sitting up. We’re looking forward to seeing him hit this next milestone but until he does, check out his neck strength and adorable smile:
In case you are wondering, he is not yet sleeping but I am certain that he will… eventually. We are doing sleep scheduling and the ‘Healthy Baby, Healthy Sleep Habits’ method of crying extinction at night in the hopes of teaching him good sleep habits now rather than later (I know he’s thinking: “What? My Mom isn’t going to be there to rock me to sleep when I’m 19 years old and in college?!”).
Another neck strength display (and his first time in a high chair – it’s old school so we were able to prop him up with the tray so he didn’t slip and was able to be supported). He was absolutely dazzled by the fact that there was a place for his toys. He then proceeded to throw each and every toy off the tray, multiple times, and, in an impressive display of gravity, they all fell to the ground. In an equally impressive display of psychology, his Mother picked them up each and every time. Who’s training who?
We also got Jamisen a little exersaucer that he finds completely intriguing. It is colorful and has music, lights and bouncing. He is highly entertained and we’re entertained watching him!
We love being parents and find each day intriguing, with something new to learn and laugh about. I suspect we’ll even be laughing more when we’re sleeping 4 or 5 straight hours a night!
And tomorrow, I promise – back to soap and soapy projects. Thanks for the break as we repaint, re-stain and re-design the SoapQueen.TV set.
