Mr. Independent

As most of you know, Ledger has been having some difficulty getting to sleep and staying asleep during the night time.  Unfortunately, this has also affected his time at child care, resulting in a very tired, fussy baby that refuses to go to sleep at child care.  After spitballing a few ideas, his child care provider and I decided to TRY a day when I don't visit over my lunch hour to nurse.  Yesterday was the big day.  I was dreading a frantic phone call that would drag me out of surgery to drive across town and try to coax my baby to sleep.  That call never came.  Ledger had his best day EVER at child care.  He took a bottle well.  He slept easily.  He was happy and played well with the other babies.  So now Mommy will be going home to pump over lunch and leaving Ledger to have his fun at day care.  Without me.

In other Ledger news:
  • This week he has learned how to WAVE.  We are still perfecting this skill.
  • Ledger's 3rd tooth, his upper right incisor is finally through.  Phew!
  • He uses the sounds "da, da, da", "ma, ma, ma", and "ba, ba, ba" a lot.  We are pretty sure he doesn't know what he's talking about when he says "dada" or "mama" but we still really like to hear it!:)
 In the video below, you can hear Ledger using his "da, da, da" sounds and doing one of his favorite Daddy-time activities... climbing the "Daddy Mountain".
