While also on the topic of sleep
Another necessary sleep item for us has been this monitor by Summer Infant. I'm pretty sure if my mother-in-law could take it home with her and watch it every night she would never go to bed. :) She just loves watching her grandbaby sleep! I love that I can peak on her on the video screen whenever I want!
Finally, a bedtime must for B is her Jesus Storybook Bible. A friend of mine received this at her baby shower and was so jazzed about it that I had to get one for B. It has beautiful illustrations and M enjoys reading it to B at night while she nurses before bed.
So there you have it! At 5.5 months these are our bedtime essentials. I'm sure these things will be ever changing as she grows older.
Tonight we are going out to dinner with my family as a farewell to my youngest brother who is heading off to college Friday morning! He will be attending Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego. B is really going to miss her Uncle so I guess we will just have to give him a surprise visit at his dorm?! :) My parents will officially be empty nesters but I plan on filling this void by dropping B off often. Ha. Just when they thought they were done with kids.... muahahhaa. We will miss you Uncle Jake but we know where to find you... :)
