Our little man is growing up so fast! Not only did he spend most of the night in his crib in the nursery last night (instead of the soon-to-be too small bassinet in our bedroom), but we had our first attempt at eating solids this morning! Wow! Tasty rice cereal, in fact. He didn't really seem to know what to do with this weird spoon in his mouth (note the top picture) but all in all he did pretty well with it!
Sleeping in the crib was admittedly long overdue! Our excuse up to this point was that we haven't painted the door for the nursery and wanted to get that done before moving him, but at the rate we're going he'd be sleeping in that bassinet for the next 2 years! So we bit the bullet and put him in his own room. He did great until about 2:30 am, when he decided that he missed us terribly. Our attempts at soothing him and keeping him in the crib failed, and I'm not quite ready to let him cry it out especially since it was his first night sleeping in a new place. We ended up moving him back to the bassinet and kept him close to the bed so he could hold onto my fingers (he was quite distraught by that point! Poor little guy!). We'll try again tonight and hope that we can keep him in the crib even longer.
Sigh. Too soon we'll be sending him off to college... ;-)
