Then I wheeled my little guy inside and then carefully picked him up and set him in his crib. It was great.

Whenever my little guy is tired and I can't get him to sleep I take him on a walk around the block and like magic, he falls asleep. I love that circle. Tonight he was fussy and tired, so I decided it would be easier to put him down to sleep if I took him on a walk first. Dressed in his dinosaur pjs, out we went. He was crying a little as I closed the door behind us. My neighbors were outside playing catch and they made some joke about how my baby was mad b/c I didn't take him out earlier. I laughed, but didn't have time to stop and chat b/c I needed to settle my little one down. A minute later he had stopped crying and I was able to make him laugh by shaking a toy on his stroller at him. A minute later his eyes were droopy. And then 3 min later he was asleep. I smiled victoriously as I rounded the corner to home. I was hoping my neighbors were still outside. I was not disappointed. They looked at my baby and said, "Is he asleep?" I replied, "Yep, I call this walk the "magic circle". I love it. It works every time."
