I’m so happy to be out of Nevada and out of the hotel that my lack of sleep, my back pain, Everett’s crankiness, none of it can lessen the joy I feel at having somewhere to settle. One very good way to find extreme happiness in your life is to go into a horrible situation. Everything in this “new life” felt like miraculous blessings!
We had Everett’s pack and play set up by this time but since it was in a new room he was too freaked out to sleep in it. I still laid him in it for a while each nap/bedtime so he’d get used to it but I’d end up holding him for his naps.
