Happy autumnal equinox


Or, in other words, welcome to the first day of fall.  We rang in the new season with style, fanaticism.jpgor geeky fanaticism in lieu thereof (like mommy like baby, evidently).  We started the day with our usual pre-game tailgate, the only difference today being that Calvin was awake for the majority of it.  It would appear that as the days get shorter and shorter, Calvin's daily alert time gets longer and longer (or, more likely, it is due to the fact hat he is sleeping more at night).  Following the pregame party we headed home, again as usual, to watch the game on TV.  And, again, Calvin was awake for the majority it, allowing us to introduce him to the finer points of football, including singing cheering, how to tackle dad, and how to denote a key play (see photo).  keyplay.jpgThe only question we have to ask is this:  what quarterback was wearing jersey number seven last week, and why did he give it back to Henne this week?  At least we won.  

But aside from the ending of summer, today marks another ending/beginning;  as of today Calvin has officially outgrown his bassinet.  And, try as we might to get used to the idea of him sleeping in the next room, we find ourselves incapable.  Mind you that this is purely a selfish situation - Calvin has no trouble sleeping alone in his crib in his nursery and does so for every nap, but we are very used to him being only an arm's reach away and are not ready to give up that feeling of safety and security.  Nonetheless, he has most definitely outgrown the bassinet, which comes with a weight limit of only 15lbs (in fact, he's been sleeping in there "illegally" for nearly two weeks now).  Today we racked our brains to come up with a solution to this self proclaimed crisis, and the answer presented itself in the form of a larger bassinet.  Not imaginative, we know, and, most definitely, not brave.  But we must choose our battles, and this is not a "man versus self" style battle that we choose to take on.  It's not worth it.  And besides, where's the fun in that?  So, at least for a few months longer, our family will continue to enjoy nightly sleepovers.
