What a good boy.

We had a whirlwind weekend--a surprise birthday party on Saturday and a surprise baby shower on Sunday. At both, so many people commented on what a good boy A is. At the birthday party, he slept in the pack and play for a few hours, but was perfectly content and quiet in our arms. At the shower, he wouldn't take a nap (but with the time change, I can't really blame him!) and was perfectly content in our arms. Both times, he went into the arms of complete strangers without much fuss at all.

So many people told us that he is such a good boy. I guess people expect babies to scream and yell all the time, and while some babies do, it seems to go away by A's age. Further, this kid has such a great temperament.

I actually got an email from a friend the other day. We had gone to her home for game night last weekend. In her email, she told me that A reassured her husband about having kids since he was so well behaved.

Speaking of the time change, A did really well with that today too. He woke up around 8:30 for the day. He was in a great mood this morning and then we left for the shower. He slept the entire way (since we held him up from his nap and he fell asleep before even getting in the car), and as I said, he didn't nap. He then slept the entire way home, and started getting fussy around 7:15. We took him up for his bath--I let him play with his toys for a lot longer than normal to drag things out, and he went right to sleep around 7:30. He woke up around 8:30 and cried for awhile, but has been sleeping for quite some time now... hopefully it will hold until our typical 4 am wake up call!
