Michael, Bryson and I have had a long, wonderful day! I LOVE LOVE the weekends when we have nothing to do and we can just all hang out together!! I truly adore our time together as a family!!
Tonight, Michael went to a concert with Ray and since Bryson had a super short nap today, (for a really funny reason...you have to see the pictures at the bottom!!) I figured he would go to sleep early tonight and I could catch up on cleaning and organizing the guest room and knock out some laundry. Wrong. B had all sorts of energy tonight!! Even though I didn't do anything on my to-do list, I had the BEST time playing with Bryson!

And, obviously, some things are just innate....
Ok, back to why his nap was so short. I gave him his bottle this afternoon and then put him in his crib. He was tired, but didn't want to go to sleep. I listened to him sing and talk and laugh for about 15 minutes through the monitor. After I could tell he was asleep, I went to check on him like normal. I don't know how in the world he ended up like this or how he ever fell asleep, but this is what I saw:
I gently maneuvered both of his legs safely back inside the aircaft and hoped he was good to nap a couple hours, but he woke up shortly after. It seriously boggles my mind how he ended up like that!! haha
Oh wait, I guess I should explain the crib. A few weeks ago I went to get him out of his crib and he had stuff ALL over his mouth. It turns out he had been chewing on his crib railing! I knew he had taken a bite here and there several months ago, but I thought he was over that phase. I had to do something STAT because 1. babies aren't supposed to eat wood, and 2. he can't sleep in an ugly crib (ha! kidding!)
Anyway, I ran to Lowes and got some giant zip ties and threw some towels on the rails. I attached some links and a couple little toys to the end so he could eat those instead of his crib :)
So, I guess he gets to sleep in an ugly crib after all! HAHA!!
