J really does love having his own room and sleeping in his racecar. He pretty well slept through the night his first night. We heard him talking in his sleep around midnight. And he also woke up around 3:00 a.m. and had a pleasant conversation with his panda. But he didn't call for us, and we didn't go in. He went back to sleep pretty quick and slept peacefully.

In the morning, he raced in to tell me "I had a good sleep! Over there! In my racecar!!" Such a big boy!

As a reward for being such a good boy and sleeping through the night without a fuss in his new bed, he was given a new Play-Doh set. It's a Backyardigans Pirate Ship. J adores Play-Doh. He had a nice time playing with it last night.

And then he went to sleep in his racecar bed, again without a lot of fuss. He slept through the night. But he did toss and turn a lot this time, and he woke up in a completely different position. I think he's doing well with the adjustment. It's nice that J adapts so well to change. Hopefully he will adjust nicely to the addition of his expected sibling. We shall see!

On another note, H really appears to enjoy J's new Play-Doh set also. He usually enjoys playing with Play-Doh with J. But last night, H regressed back a few steps and actually spent some time playing with Play-Doh by himself, after J had gone to sleep. H appears to quite enjoy shooting Play-Doh with the ship's cannon.

H is really tired and will need some time to unwind after this baby is born. I don't know how that will work.

After the baby is born maybe one of our girlfriends without kids will be able to spend a weekend with you and then H can go away with a guy friend or 2.
For sure we girls with kids will come over and spend the evening with you and the kids the guys will take H out & get him drunk. It's a small thing but it might help a little bit:)
Well work something out!
