My life is pretty good.

I like my kids to be able to entertain themselves. This is an important skill in my mind, so every day Corbin spends a little while chilling by himself, without mommy or daddy in his face keeping him happy. Yesterday, after about 10 minutes of alone time on our bed just watching the ceiling fan, I put a perfectly content baby down for a nap. He woke up early, so after changing his diaper, I put him back to bed to finish out his regular nap time. Twenty minutes later, he still hasn't cried, so I peek in on him to make sure he's asleep... and find him staring at the ceiling, kicking and waving his arms, just talking to himself.

I seriously have the best baby in the entire world.

I do that too, partly because I like Kaitlyn to entertain herself, and partly because I have two other kids who demand my attention and she just has to take a back seat every once in a while.

And now that she is sleeping 10 hours through the night, I'm pretty sure I have the best baby in the entire world too. :)

P.S. Cute background!

I leave the boys to entertain themselves A LOT! Every morning when they both wake up, I put them both in the same crib for, what I call, "brother-brother time"...and they are content playing and rolling around for up to 45 min. I think it is very important for a child to learn to console themselves!
