BJ's such a small guy... and for such a small guy, he sure takes up a lot of room in this house. Actually, you can't really call the establishment we live in a "house". We live in a small one bedroom cottage, which I should say I'm thankful for living in because the rent is amazingly cheap. Anyway, when it was just me and HJ, I could actually walk around with some comfort. Now, we have so many baby items that I feel like I'm sinking deeper and deeper in a sea of baby clutter.
The picture above is what prompted me to write this blog... HJ was sleeping, so he had the couch reclined back, and I had to step over him to go into kitchen. Lots and lots of STUFF. We have a bouncer, a walker, a swing, a rocking chair, a co-sleeper, a bassinet, a baby clothes cabinet, and lots and lots of stuffed animals. :-) In fact, I have so much furniture that I had to take some to my parents' house! Lucky for me, my mom puts BJ's stuff in my old room... but I doubt my dad is happy about my old room becoming a storage facility. Oh well, hehe.
The one furniture item that I am truly thankful for is something we received yesterday from HJ's co-worker. It is a swing made by Boppy. Here's a picture of it:
The swing is the best baby furniture ever invented. BJ has been sleeping in his swing for a whole 3 hours now without stirring! It's an amazing contraption. In fact, I seriously question what I am doing awake at this hour... I should be sleeping since I know he will be out like a light. This swing adjusts for BJ's weight and swings according to how heavy he is. Before we received this swing, BJ would wake up every two hours, sometimes every hour. I can't speak for him, but I think the movement soothes him and he feels like someone is holding him. Whatever the case may be, he's ASLEEP... and I will sleep now too so I can catch some rest. Good night baby readers!
