But what did I find?? A sleeping baby! I've heard about this. There are a lot of parents out there that claim there babies go to sleep by themselves. I've even read books and websites that try to teach you how to train them to do this. But I've never actually seen it until last night! Visions of sleeping through the night danced in my head. So I proudly went back to bed, closed my eyes and attempted to sleep.
Sleep never came for me. But my little boy slept a whole 1/2 an hour in his own bed while I watched the clock!

Ethan is "learning" to use his spoon. I will dip it into whatever soft thing I might be eating to let him have a taste of it. He seems to know where it goes! I don't plan on starting him on solids until after 6 months. But he can have a little taste every now and then!

We have been working on new positions in our Maya Wrap (thanks Vicki!). I want to use it when we travel to South Carolina at the end of May. Ethan really likes to view the world in the forward position! It is very easy to pull him down into the sleeping position when he gets tired. I haven't tried to BF with him in it yet but will soon.

The hair stylist in me kinda wants to cut it but I don't. We've been nursing Harry back to health this last week. I was having to hand feed him chicken for a few days and he stopped drinking so when I took him to the vet he was dehydrated. He had to have blood work and IV fluids.
His back left leg had stopped working and the vet said it was probably nerve damage or something in his back. She gave him some antibiotics and muscle relaxers. After a few days of me shoving the pills down his throat and hand feeding him watered down chicken broth he is feeling much better!

The flowers weren't growing fast enough so we bought some! But there is still hope for the little ones. We don't think any of the bulbs will make flowers this year. Hopefully next year. The big green leafy ones in back are green beans we just tossed in there! We also think there might be some sunflowers growing! Time will tell.
Here are the tomato, peppers and green beans:We bought cages for the tomatoes because they are getting so big. We can't wait to harvest our "crop" and let Ethan have his first taste of home grown food!
Bird feeder update: We replaced the two bird feeders the squirrels broke. We bought some 100lb wire to hang them up with! Eli said if the squirrels chew through it he would buy them a bag of sunflower seeds and hand feed them!

Yes, I know it was gross to take a picture of it. But it was his first big blowout. I had to have a record of it! I tried cleaning him up with wet wipes but that didn't work at all. In to the bath happily he went.

I just don't understand why this year they are so interested it them. Last year they never touched them..... I've always love all animals, except for mean ones. I am now beginning to change my mind about the fuzzy rats that call themselves squirrels!
