Well, after 5 nights of sleeping in his own bedroom, in his cozy crib, Gage is doing wonderfully! He even has slept for 8+ hours for the past two nights in a row. I love going to get him in the morning and seeing his happy face so excited to see me. He is taking longer naps now too. So I have decided that "letting go" will always be hardest on me, but ultimately the best for my baby boy.

I left the room for a few minutes and when I returned he looked like this:
So it's official - I can't leave him alone on the ottoman anymore! I thought "rolling" would be the next step, but I guess it's "rotating"...

And yesterday I realized that he is now getting bored just lying on the floor, or sitting in the bouncy seat. Now when I add the toy attachments he can actually hit at them!
(Still checking out those feet too!)
Look at my big boy in the Bumbo seat! He likes to sit in it for short periods until his neck gets too tired! He is so cute to watch as he is happily working hard!

Daddy said that "he felt sorry for the poor kid" but I know he really liked it too! :)
We spent Saturday at Craig's grandparents' house near Winterset, IA for an Easter dinner with that side of the family. It was the first time Craig's grandparents and aunts, uncles and cousins met Gage. He was a little overwhelmed by all the activity, but overall he did great!Four generations: Great Grandpa Francis (Craig's mom's dad) Grandpa Arley, Daddy and Gage!
On Sunday we went to church and then drove to Cedar Falls to visit my family. My mom always hosts for holidays and prepares a feast! This is Gage and his Easter basket from GrandMary. (These pictures were so cute I had to share them all!)

andand putting up with Mom's "photo shoots".
After that it was getting late so we decided to make the long walk back to the car. It was a little windy (surprise surprise!) but Gage was bundled and he did great! I say when's the next trip?!

- He is sleeping through the night...if you consider a 6 hour stretch sleeping through the night! Sometimes it's even 7 or 8 - yippee! (If he keeps this up he will be moving downstairs to his crib...bittersweet to me!)
- He is loving the tv! I can't even have it on anymore when I feed him because he gets distracted by it and won't eat! Since I don't want him to watch tv we have quiet days at home with just music playing. It's good for me too!
- He still doesn't like to take baths, but just yesterday he got mostly through one without crying. That is a first!
- He can usually fall asleep on his own now. Many times he does need me to come in 5-10 minutes later to give him his paci and rub his head, and then he quickly falls asleep. I still can't bear to let him cry for long!

He was in good company with Teddy sleeping next to him and Al watching over him. :) My dilemma now was do I risk waking him and put him in his bed? I decided to leave him there since he looked so comfy, until about 20 minutes later when he started to stir. Now I have a softly crying boy in his bed, so we'll hope that he goes back to sleep!
Update: Nope, he didn't. :)
