Johnny Jumper, Arm Holes and Work Glasses

We introduced the Johnny Jumper to Ariel the other day. She did exactly what Caleb used to do...she fell asleep in it!! It was so cute because she tried SO hard to keep herself awake but she did finally give in and took about a 15 minute nap in it. I think I may have started something new with Ariel. Since the day she was born she never did take a pacifier. She always gagged on it and then spit it out. Yesterday she wanted to nurse nearly every hour and then she would fall asleep and never get a full feeding in. I decided to try the pacifier and man has it helped. Today she has fed every 3 hours and I got her to take a nap in her crib. It is nearly 3:30 now and she has been sleeping since 1:30. I wasn't sure if I liked the idea of her having a pacifier but I don't think she is going to become dependent on it like Caleb was with his. We will see!
This morning I was trying to get the house clean and Caleb kept on playing in the closet and was trying to help me "clean up". He kept taking all the clothes off the hangers that were clean and then taking them into the utility room and putting them in the washer. I was getting so frustrated but then I caught him sticking his head in the arm hole of Dan's fleece vest...totally took the frustation away....well maybe for a moment anyway!

Caleb loves to help his Daddy work in the garage every Saturday. Today he had to have his "work glasses" as he called them and his Razorback hat. Too cute!
