This week Eli and I went on a hike with my friend Candace and her baby Evie who live in one of the Condo's upstairs. We went up part of the Mt. Timpanogos Trail and it was beautiful. Eli loves the baby carrier cause it feels like he is curled up in my womb when he is in it. He fell asleep the minute I put him in it.
Eli's favorite Toys: His bouncer and swing
The swing has been a life saver because when we can't comfort him, we put him in the swing and he calms down. We are trying to get him to sleep longer at night and the swing really helps. Dad will put Eli in the swing and let it rock him to sleep. He will then sleep next to it to make sure he can help Eli when he wakes up. He doesn't love his bouncer nearly as much as the swing.
This week Lark and I got together to make Eli a carseat canopy to protect him from the outside world and help him to stay asleep when we are out in public. Lark pretty much did all of it since I haven't sewed in a really long time. She did a fantastic job! It ended up taking us till 3am to finish so we were pretty tired. We ended up getting more complicated than we needed to on the connectors, but it turned out really nice.
