Thankful 30: Post 24 - Baby Signing Time DVDs

It is the only thing that has kept Keira's attention for more than a mere glance. We have watched every kids show on PBS. Well, I suppose I should say "I've" watched them more than she did. Though there was a one-time dance along with the Thomas the Train theme.

Thankful 30: Post 23 - Video Monitors

If you've ever had one, you know what I'm talking about. That moment at 2:46 am when your baby fusses. You reach over and look at the video monitor to see the munchkin rolling over and resettling. Truly knowing that I can close my eyes and go back to sleep without wondering if she's going back to sleep or going to start wailing. It's priceless.

It's also really helpful when I'm in the middle of dishes, laundry or gluing myself to a piece of felt (don't ask). And there is nothing so fantastic as looking at Doug with the words "she's up" and "your turn".
