Martin, after a short time, had turned his tiny sleeping vessel into a disheveled mess.
Elliott, on the other hand, had left his sleeping area in neat order like a perfect, well-organized gentleman.
Not sure where he got that from.
Tonight we moved on to the next phase of cereal, this time with an oatmeal, spelt, and barley cereal.
They seemed to enjoy it more than the cereals of days past.
Elliott was also a fan, smearing it all over his face as quickly as possible. This was pretty much how he looked after the first spoonful.
After the feeding we needed to give them both a bath and we had to use a little elbow grease to scrub their little faces with a cloth to get off all the caked-on cereal we could. It seems like we've moved on to the next inevitable stage whereby we need to bathe them daily. With the formula it was a lot easier to give them a quick hand-and-face wash before bed. Now there is an intense need for head-to-toe cleaning.
If there was any way I could shirk this responsibility, believe me, I would.
After heating up some frozen Chinese food I settled back with a Holiday Porter from Samuel Adams. We are a bit behind in our Christmas movie watching but, for some reason, we have found ourselves watching through back episodes of Red Dwarf instead.
All that will change tomorrow. For tomorrow we have a Christmas movie event planned so exciting I can barely contain myself.
Tune in tomorrow to find out what I'm talking about . . . if you can stand the suspense!
I'm sure you'll be fine.
