As you all know, we have been in the middle of our move for the past month. Our lives have been in chaos, to say the least. We have been in the apartment just about a week, and only found towels last night! (We've been sharing two towels for the past week, washing every day.)
The baby has been a trooper throughout this whole chaotic time. He made the transition to the first hotel room, to the second hotel room to the apartment with predictable, but minimal fuss. The day he got his crib back, he was a happy boy.
Well, yesterday, we found the music toy that attaches to the side of the crib. I had to go out and run errands and DH attacked another box. What could be inside this magic box, but the babys wonderful music maker! This is the same one that he discovered and learned to turn on by himself very quickly upon our return home (baby, not DH, LOL). DH put said music maker on the floor and the baby raced over to it turned it on, and curled up on the floor next to it for five minutes!!
DH said that the baby kept touching it and playing with it like he couldn't believe it was back! How amazing!
The baby will turn it on in the middle of the night if he wakes up and just wants a little comfort. He's had a tough few weeks without it. This morning, after teething and being up most of the night, he turned it on, and by the time the music was over, he was sound asleep again. I heard a little sigh when the music started.
Such a simple idea, but what a difference it has made for him.
