Another Update on Mr. Smiles
Mr. Smiles Update
He was super smiley yesterday, and he was pretty good about naps. We did break the morning wake rules and slept in. He woke up at 5am first off, which is unusually early, but he also went back to sleep 20min after he finished eating, so morning nap started early too. We then slept for another 4hrs (until about 9:45am). So the day started out funny… hopefully that’s why bedtime was another start and stop affair. At least he doesn’t have habitual wake up times at night, only wake up 3-4hrs after the last feeding session and not go back to sleep problems. Teething seemed to be worse again last night too.
This morning I got him up around 7:30am, so hopefully that will help with bedtime and nap timing. He’s finding it easier and easier to fall asleep on his own with fewer pick-up/put down helps (about 0-1 times). Every day is better! The exception is bad teething making it harder for him to settle down.
6 Month Count Down
Less than 2 weeks until he’s 6 months old! He’s getting better at sitting up on his own, so I’m watching out for that. We’ll be making a plan for starting him on solids soon too. We plan on making our own baby food for him, especially since we have a nice KitchenAid food processor (yay wedding gifts!). I can’t believe he’ll be 6 months soon! Time is flying by…
