Well it was bound to happen. NHL decided Sunday morning that he wanted to change his baby’s name. He still wants Harry, but not for the first name. Since he’s totally ga-ga for Howie Mandel he has named the doll Howie Harry. . . for now at least.
Here’s NHL and Howie sleeping the first night he had him:
Last night we also told NHL that he will likely be sharing his room with the baby. This did not go over well. He must have thought he had some say in this, but he doesn’t. After much screaming and yelling, JL finally got him to see how much of a helper he will be if the baby is in his room. The only good thing is we NEVER called the spare bedroom the baby’s room, it’s always been called the 3rd bedroom.
The plan, we think, is to have NHL’s bed and the baby’s crib in the one room. Then the 3rd bedroom will house the changing table and dressers for the boys. JL and I are more comfortable with this seeing we weren’t thrilled with the baby in the back of the house so far from us. We can’t figure out how to put the Pack n’ Play in our room like we did in the apartment when NHL was first born, so this just may work. We just can’t see spending money on a small bassinet that may fit in our tiny room that already has no floor/walking space.
