So I jumped the gun on Monday when I wrote that Mason was loving his "big boy bed." Its not that he's not loving it. Its just that Mason is obsessed with rolling onto his belly these days. Once he's on his belly he gets ticked because he's not a big fan of being on his belly. Because he's ticked he starts kicking and because he's kicking one of his little leg gets STUCK (and I mean stuck) in the crib rails. This then results in a FULL out scream. (And yes there is a difference between crying and screaming). Yesterday he refused to nap for my mother-in-law (in his crib or really at all for that matter) and last night (although he slept great from 9:15pm until 10:45pm) it was a battle from 10:45pm until close to 1am. He would fall asleep when we told him he was okay...only to roll over onto his belly seconds after we left his room...which would cause him to start crying...then start kicking...then his leg would get stuck...which caused him to start SCREAMING. Finally we couldn't take it anymore...into his rock and sleeper he went (but in HIS room). And this morning I whipped out the pack 'n play for nap time...
how I laid him down...
and how he ended up...
Because there are no crib rails to get his foot stuck in...after 15 minutes of crying he fell fast asleep for an hour and 45 minutes!!!

Love begins before a baby is born...and that love will live forever in our hearts. When you lose a baby, you lose not only the promise of a very special human being, but you lose many beautiful hopes and dreams as well.

We simply do not see the bigger picture, but we choose to believe that there is a bigger picture and that our loss is a part of some wonderful story authored by God himself.
