Good Buy

We were cautioned by many that babies either love or hate swings. If it is the case that you buy a swing before the little one arrives, and he loves it: good buy. If he hates it: big waste of money....

We decided we would wait until Roscoe was born, then tow him to the store to get his opinion before purchase.

Six weeks later, while dreaming of having two working arms, I remembered that we had yet to pursue The Swing.

Last night Andy brought home this gem:

Today, I woke with Roscoe at 4:00 am. I nursed him, played with him, and as he was getting drowsy, I placed him in his new swing. For TWO HOURS he slept soundly.

I took full advantage and decided to bake my favorite cookies (6 of which I ate this afternoon, yum!), pump, and take a shower. Such a great start to the day!

Here's little Roscoe demonstrating the power of The Swing:

For those interested in the details, a link to a demo of the seat's many functions...wish they made one of these in my size.


  1. I am very happy to here that little Roscoe likes the swing since this is the one that we have. It is put together & is sitting in our living room just waiting for our LO!!

  2. YAY glad to hear that Roscoe loves his swing. Bella HATED hers, lol! I bet it felt great to get some "me" time too.
