Obedient In Deed

I guess Levin's desire to obey was not so burning after all.

Last week I got a call from a scratch-n-dent outlet store that they had a crib come in that day.  I'd asked them 5 months ago to call me when they finally got a crib in-store.

On Thursday I went up to the store, dickered, and bought the crib.

On Friday I put Levin down for a nap and when I went to check on him, found this:

He was crawling manically around the room and laughing.

On Saturday we picked up the crib.  I like to think there is an amazing moral somewhere in there; perhaps that I have impeccable timing... most likely that my Mother's instinct is perfectly calibrated.

He's watching Ray put the bedroom door back on... we had to remove it to fit the crib in the room.

This is the part where we leave the room, close the door, and hear him start jumping on the bed.

Now, my favorite pastime is peeking in while he's napping and seeing what position he decided was comfortable.  His chosen positions assure us all he's Ray's child.

And to think you were keeping that sleeping positioned swaddled and straightened all this time.

He looks so grown up.

The crib is beautiful.

I think the timing how all this went down is funny.

Did he get a new blanket?

The quilt you made on the crib looks so pretty.

Such a cutie. Did you make the quilt on his bed? Super cute.

That crib is beautiful! I can't believe how tall he is standing up in it.

Sleeping babies are the best. :)

Oh I miss him so much! He is getting so tall!! You need to take more video of him crawling around. I love that devious smile too:)

He is so darling Cali. I love that first photo. And any sleeping baby photo is my favorite, they are so sweet and they are photos I love to look back on.

He took right to the no swaddle sleeping? Ande showed me his swaddle and it was impressive. Owen is seriously fighting the swaddle.

My favorite thing about this post is the picture of Levin after he had made it out of his cradle. He looks downright mischievous. I love your blogs. Today I had 100 unread ones...I saved your for the very last.
