james is sleeping in his cradle, and has been for over two hours. it might not sound like much, but this is a huge triumph. the boy sleeps, but not for long unless he's being held. my house is fairly organized, i read through and recycled the sunday paper, i'm blogging without simultaneously nursing. it's a big day:)
especially, because this is day one (of SEVEN) of jim being out of town on a backpacking trip. so far, so good. getting out of the house helped. even though it was snowy and in the single digits, we made it to church and had a lovely dinner with neighbors. dylan kept tantrums at bay, and she and i even got a little nap in together in her big girl bed.
