**Hey, Hey, Hey! Guess what?! Grayson slept in this weekend!!! On both Saturday and today he slept until 7am!!!!! Friends, this has NEVER happened, so imagine me jumping up and down over and over and dancing in the kitchen with Curt because we too got to sleep until 7! I actually think it’s because he has a bad cold and is cutting his canine teeth. So little guy needs some extra sleep. Whatever the reason, it has been glorious.
**Now that we are getting a consistent 7-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep does that mean it’s time for baby #2 to alter the sleeping universe. (NOT AN ANNOUNCEMENT!). Curt is rolling his eyes right now…he is enjoying his sleep. Also, did I just jinx us? Will Grayson be getting up at 430 am tomorrow? Probably! 😉
**I have two awesome sites that I frequent a lot when it comes to little ones. Kelly Mom, is great for all things breastfeeding, pumping, formula etc. I was an exclusive pumper and this site is FANTASTIC! New mommies, 2nd time mommies, 3rd time mommies…any of you I promise you will benefit from this site. The other site is The Baby Sleep Site. I FIRMLY believe in sleep regressions, Grayson has been SPOT on with sleep regressions (18 month sleep regression anyone?!). And this site has been a lifesaver. We all know I’m a schedule person, so I think their sample schedules too. Check those two out mommies!
**Speaking of schedules….I know I’ve talked about what a crazy schedule person I am in the past. But I just think little ones THRIVE and NEED schedules. Anyways, I understand that sometimes it’s just not going to work to get him a nap on time, or bedtime on time. But whenever possible if I can make it work, I’ll do it. For instance, today we are having a lunch party for my niece. It’s at noon here in town. Grayson will be fast asleep. I won’t keep him up to go…can you imagine a tired, not feeling good, teething toddler in a restaurant…with other people?! So, as much as I would like to take him since we will be close to home he will just stay home with daddy and take a nap like normal. Sorry Caleigh! On the flip side, in a few weeks we have a wedding out of town. Luckily, the wedding isn’t until after his nap. Grayson can sleep on the way for his nap and get a good two hour nap in. I know bedtime will be off that night, but I’m hoping the stimulation of a wedding and dance will make him somewhat ok. Not that we will be staying out until midnight or even 10 for that matter, but I’m sure it will be past his bedtime. And that’s ok, we will deal and he will be ok! And so will we…..I hope. 😉
**Basically, what I’m trying to say is schedules are important to me but I understand sometimes we get a little off of them…. 😉
**It’s been feeling like the end of October not the middle of September here in Iowa. I for one love it. I got all my Fall decorations out, got the front door decked out, my cinnamon candles going….ahhh…This is my favorite time of year!
I better get going, enjoy your day my friends!
