All is well

Things have been rather hectic around the McConnell household. Both DJ and I have started back to work and Ian has been going to a sitter 3 days a week. I haven't worked since the May before Ian was born, so it's a very big adjustment. Ian has never been to a real sitter. He's always had his mama or a grandmother to watch him, so it's a very new thing for him as well. He seems to be doing just fine. The only issue is that he gets upset when DJ drops him off in the morning. He's in that very clingy stage where he wants only familiar faces. We're hoping it will get better once he gets more accustomed to the sitter. I have to say, I was very nervous about how he would do, especially at nap time. Instead of being read to and rocked to sleep, he would be put in a play pen without either. The sitter has 5 other kids, so rocking him is not an option. It seems to be working though, as Ian is now finally sleeping in his crib again. Ever since the clingy stage started, he would not sleep in his crib and slept with us. As soon as we would try to put him in the crib, he would scream. We tried leaving him and checking every few minutes, but he would not calm down. Plus, I had a hard time leaving him screaming. So, the fact that he's now going to sleep in his own bed is a very big deal. He still gets his stories and rocked a bit, but now we don't have the screaming or if we do, it's only for a minute. Last night he went down without any tears! What a blessing!

Ian is a crawling machine. He is everywhere. He has started trying to conquer the stairs as well, so we're going to have to baby proof them. No walking yet, but it's not too far away. I think he's content with crawling all over the place for now.

Glad Ian's doing ok for the sitter... I'm sure it's a toss up between needing/wanting to go back to work and having to take him to someone new. I'll be taking Aidan to a sitter in January and am not looking forward to it. What if she doesn't burp him like I do or cuddle him long enough? It's hard. But it sounds like he's doing fine! Clingy boy and all!!

Glad you are all well. Sitters are a definite adjustment...so true. I am glad that it seems to be getting easier each day. How has Ian done palate wise? Is he eating ok? How long would you say it took him to be more like himself again. I am trying to gauge how much time I should take off from work. I hate the unknown! I am glad Ian is well. Reid sends him a big high 5!

Glad all is going well. Everyone should adjust to the sitter. I know once my kids figured it out, they loved going. You're lucky though, mine quickly figured out that they just had to lie down and go to sleep at the sitter's house, but mommy and daddy were suckers and would still hold, rock, and cuddle...so we did...and still do.

Glad to hear that bedtime is better! That's always such a big relief to have bedtime go smoothly.
