Good night my angel

We went to Ikea on Sunday and I was excited to get Andrew a toy box. I got some cute decals from the kids section too, and put them on the toy box to make it more personalized and fun. Now all his little toys fit into one box so when he goes to bed I can have a few hours of a much cleaner looking living room. lol

I was concerned how it would go having baby with us while we shopped but it actually worked out really well. He had some macaroni and cheese at the cafeteria, then we put him in the seat of the shopping cart (his first time doing that!) to go around the showroom. We’d got him some toys and he managed to fling one thing right out of the package and all the pieces went flying but it wasn’t too bad collecting it up! I nursed him before we went downstairs, he fell fast asleep, and he slept through the entire shop in the downstairs area! It was glorious.

We didn’t get any major items or anything, just little odds and ends. It was his toy box that I wanted most of all! And a shelf to hold all our gd tass =) Which looks really good, if I do say so myself.

I made hummus tonight and it’s quite tasty. Andrew LOVES hummus! He had quite a bit of it as a late night snack. He also had some little pieces of tortilla chip with it. Then he had a small plum and some vanilla custard mixed with a bit of rice cereal. So at least he did eat something tonight. He’s been SO fussy and it’s because he’s teething. I haven’t been able to open his mouth up enough to see which tooth is coming in but it’s very obvious that teething is the issue. I feel so bad for him when there’s really nothing I can do to make him feel better. I put the Baby Orajel on sometimes but it doesn’t seem to do a whole lot. I guess I should reconsider giving him Baby Tylenol. I haven’t given it to him at all yet, but I guess if he seems to be feeling worse it might help. I’ve resisted giving it to him – there are mixed opinions on how good it is to give to babies and I don’t want to give it to him if he doesn’t really need it.

He’s finally gone to sleep. He was resisting sleep for the longest time, despite how tired I knew he was. Finally I rocked him and played the Billy Joel lullaby ‘Goodnight my Angel’ about 5 times and sung it to him softly and he fell asleep. The cd of the song came with the book and it’s actually really quite sweet and soothing.

These are the lyrics:

*Verse 1*
Good night my angel time to close you eyes
And save these questions for another day
I think I know what you've been asking me
I think you know what I've been trying to say

I promised I would never leave you
And you should always know
Where ever you may go
No matter where you are
I never will be far away

*Verse 2*
Good night my angel now it's time to sleep
And still so many things I want to say
Remember all the songs you sang for me
When we went sailing on an emerald bay

And like a boat out on the ocean
I'm rocking you to sleep
The water's dark and deep
Inside this ancient heart
You'll always be a part of me

(Musical Bridge)
Do do do do...

*Verse 3*
Goodnight my angel now it's time to dream
And dream how wondeful your life will be
Someday your child will cry and if you sing this lullaby
Then in your heart there will always be a part of me

Someday we'll all be gone
But lullabies go on and on
They never die that's how you and I will be
