Today during naptime I laid our 3-month old on the bed while I set up the ironing board next to him. My thinking was that he would kick around and play while I ironed and made baby faces at him. I can usually get about ten minutes out of this maneuver before my babies want to be held, or more directly entertained.
No sooner had I started my podcast and pressed the first shirt had little baby started sucking his thumb.
A few minutes later the little guy had sucked himself to sleep.
In my five years of babies, never has anything so absolutely magical occurred. Miraculous, Precious, Wonderful beyond description. My 3-month old put himself to sleep.
I love this boy.
