Today’s post is a bit delayed because Dexter, i.e. Captain Fussy Pants, could not be settled this morning.
We did the whole rotation: bouncy chair, bottle, changing pad (for whatever reason, he LOVES his changing pad), jungle gym, mobile, walking him around the house … and repeat. Nothing.
Finally, FINALLY I found the magic combination … bottle while watching the mobile. I suppose you could equate this to a movie and nice glass of wine … I should’ve known.
Here is proof of my success:
I feel incredibly lucky for the enormous amount of help I got during my first 6 weeks with Dexter. (Thank you Grandmas and Grandpas!)
However, all the help made me a little tentative on my first day … alone. But it’s only 11:00 and already we both have had breakfast, a bath and a breath of fresh outside air.
