The Swing

This post is especially for those who bought Gavin the swing, Aunt Tara and Aunt Erin included. When we first brought Gavin home he disliked the swing. It made his eyes big and his heart race so we didn't put him in it for a while. I felt bad because I didn't know he would not like it and I was worried that it would hurt the ladies feelings who bought it for him. When Gavin was about 2 months old we decided to try it out again. This time he loved it! It put him to sleep. Now at almost 4 months we have another issue. Gavin is a lot more alert now and he stares at the mobile. He screams and cries and throws his hands up to try to reach it. So we started taking him out of it when he cried, then we realized that he wanted that mobile in his hands! So we took it off and put it in his hands and he just cooed, held on to it and licked it. I think we have the problem solved and the nurses were right at the hospital "he knows what he wants!!"

Yay!! I'm so glad Gavin likes his swing and that it's not wiggin' out his heart rate and system. Who knew that he wanted to actually HOLD the mobile, instead of just stare at it like normal babies?! Hmmm, you may have a little power struggle on your hands. :)
