For a couple nights last week, he slept in his bouncer (in his pack 'n play so I could see him) with the vibrator on. It was the only way he would sleep. Luckily, he's back to sleeping normally.
We took our first family outing on Saturday (12-18). Our car got an oil change and a couple brake lights replaced while we hung out at Aunt Lindy's apartment. We stopped at Target with a moderately long list. Shopping on the last Saturday before Christmas.. not fun. There were people galore. It was very annoying, especially when we had to get a second cart (Mason's car seat takes up a lot of space). We made it halfway through our list and were in the dog bed aisle when Mason suddenly woke up and started CRYING. And, he wouldn't stop. He was hungry. So.. we just went out to the car, Mason all snuggled in a blanket being bounced as we walked. I'm surprised no one stopped me on the way out thinking I was stealing something. Once on the boob, he calmed down and poor Dad had to finish the list with both carts in tow. He got cranky again on our way back to Aunt Lindy's apartment (to get our water jugs, free water!) and didn't stop crying the whole five minutes. Luckily the ride home was a lot more peaceful. We survived the outing!
