Before you have kids you always hear that they will mimic everything you do. Ian apparently watches EVERYTHING I do.
I’m one of those moms that breastfeed my babies before naps and bedtime. Our bedtime routine is read 2-3 books then I let Ian play one app on my Kindle called Nighty Night by Fox & Sheep. While Ian plays this “game” of turning off the lights for all the farm animals I breastfeed Jensen. Ian usually finishes before I’m done feeding Jensen and then I put Jensen down and leave the door open a crack. Usually Jensen falls asleep by himself, but on some nights he has a harder time going to sleep on his own. On these nights while Jensen is screaming Ian also screams at me to “take care of baby”. So I proceed to “take care of baby” by again breastfeeding him. Then everything is good and they sleep the rest of the night.
Today as I was getting our stuff ready to have lunch with my sisters, who are back in town for the holidays, Ian and I have a conversation about his Monkey lovey:
Ian: Monkey is sleeping
Me: Oh that’s nice
Ian: Uh Oh Monkey is crying
Me: Oh no you better take care of Monkey
Ian: Grabs his monkey gets on the couch lifts his shirt up and “feeds” the monkey
This happens two more times and I had the hardest time trying to conceal my laughter!
Merry Christmas Eve Everyone!!
