I got a new purse/diaper bag yesterday. As I was just cleaning out my purse to switch everything over I came across Tanner's first ankle band from when he was born!
I have kept everything from all of his hospital stays and put them in his scrapbook.
When we first got home from LA, I remember going through everything to organize it and save stuff. I could have sworn I remembered exactly where I had put his ankle band since I remembered where I put all the other ones.... But nope. I couldn't find it anywhere! I was so upset and sad since it was the first one. The one he had before everything happened with his heart. When he was supposedly a healthy baby. And it was the cutest one too... See the bears?
Apparently I did remember where I put it. I knew I stashed it in my purse. But when I was looking for it after, I neglected to check a teeny little pocket.
It makes me so happy that I finally found it. I though it had accidentally gotten thrown away with some papers.
And the bonus is that I had it next to me this entire time.
Right in my purse.
Tanner will usually wake up a couple times a night and go right back to sleep when I go in and feed him a bottle.
I know I need to get out of that habit, and if anyone has any good suggestions on how to do it so I don't feel terrible, I'm all ears!
Tonight, however, he was being a little difficult to get back to sleep.
I ended up holding and rocking him for a while. But he would wake right back up as soon as I put him in his crib.
So then I tried rubbing his back while he was in his cub. But as soon as I would stop he'd look up at me.
This was the only way I could get him to stay down....
I rubbed his back then stitched to the dog and left it on his back so hopefully he'd think I'm still there.
So far it's working!
