We've hit a major milestone in the Foreman house. Easton is now sleeping in his crib. In his room. Across the house from us.  It wasn't exactly planned, it just kinda happened. And he took to it so quickly that I actually wasn't prepared for it. I didn't have a monitor for his room yet so I was putting him to sleep in his room, staying awake or sleeping on the couch with his bedroom door open and when he woke up around 1am I would nurse him and wait for him to fall back asleep in his crib and then have to take him from his room to my room to his rock n' play. And then he would usually wake up again and I would put him in the bed with me. Which is what I was trying to get away from. So after a few nights of realizing that apparently he liked sleeping in the crib, I had to order a monitor camera for his room. Thank you Amazon and same day delivery. Amazing!  He is actually sleeping so much better now than he was before the crib. I think he was getting too cramped & he likes the space in his crib. And I've also realized he likes to sleep on his side, which he couldn't do in the swing or the rock n' play. So now he is going to bed between 8-9pm, sleeps until about 4am, I get up and change his diaper and nurse him and then he goes back to sleep in the crib until 7:30-8am when we wake up for the day. This is also where my amazing new rocking recliner comes into play. I wanted 
a rocking chair so badly when Brinleigh was a baby but we didn't have anywhere to put one in the house in Sitka. So I made it a point to get one with Easton. Kolt, being the amazing husband that he is, took my pregnant ass to several furniture stores and walked around while I tried sitting in 50 different chairs until I found THE chair. And an amazing chair it is. So now when I wake up in the middle of the night/ early morning, I can nurse him and rock him without leaving his room. 
I was extremely picky about the chair that I wanted. They are so expensive and pretty much the same price as nursery chairs, so I decided if we are gonna spend that kind of money, it's gonna be worth it. So I wanted a rocking chair and recliner that we could eventually move into the living room and use after Easton out grows it. 
As far as Easton's baby monitor, we are still using the one we bought when Brinleigh was a baby. We still keep a camera in Brinleigh's room and the system we have allows us to add up to four cameras. So I just ordered an additional camera for Easton's room and the monitor scans back and forth between cameras every eight seconds. 

Also, as you can see, he sits in the double stroller seats now without his infant car seat, which I've decided is now too heavy to carry him around in so it just stays locked into the base in my car all the time. Time to shop for new convertible car seats!
