Sleeping and Walking. But not at the same time...

Well, Ethan has been sleeping better the last 2 nights and during his naps. I've pin-pointed his issues to one of two things:

1. I found a "boo-boo" in a crevis that I was detail-cleaning. OK, the boy has a lot of crevises and I miss some of them! Anyway, I think it was causing him pain at night. And if you saw the boo-boo and knew where it was, I think you would believe me.
2. I am feeding him 2 bowls of oatmeal a day, one of them being about an hour before he goes to bed AND I'm adding a tablespoon of rice to his bedtime bottle. The boy needs the calories.
Once I paid attention to both of these issues, he started sleeping...from 8pm to 6:30am. YEAH!
OK...let's just keep this up!

I'm also ready for the weather to be consistent. We've had a few 70 degree days in the last few weeks and I'm SOOO ready for the temps to stop ranging from the 30s to the 70s. I'm ready to start walking the kids in the afternoon, but it's just touch and go with the weather. We did get a chance to walk last week and I brought my camera with me. We played in the yard and got our first outside spring shots of the year. Good times...
