While we were visiting Rob’s mom the other night, someone had the great idea to lay Kaylee in the portable crib in the living room and stick a pacifier in her mouth. Her cynical mother saw this and thought, “Yeah, that’s not going to last long,” but I sat down for dinner anyway, expecting to be interrupted at any moment by a whining baby who wanted to be held.
Then about midway through dinner, something strange happened to my baby.
She fell asleep.
What’s this? No rocking? No smothering her with attention? No holding a bottle in her mouth for half an hour?
She just fell asleep? That’s it?
I had no idea she could do that. We must find a way to use this new, powerful information to our advantage.
