Yesterday afternoon for his nap it only took 10 minutes for him to calm down and sleep. I think i have a quick learner on my hands. It was so nice to have my afternoon to clean. It was great having time to myself again.
then came last night: we were gone, I had a prayer meeting and Adrian had to do the finances at church so we dropped Jackson off at his aunt and uncles to play while we were at our meetings. He fell asleep on our way home and this usually is a bad things. He thinks he has slept and can get up a play. Due to it being 11pm already, mom did not want to "get up and play". Bed sounded great. We got home, he went right to my shoulder out of the car, (always a good sign) and then I laid him in bed, he rolled to his side and tada sleeping in his crib. He woke up a couple of times in the night, but I just stayed in bed and he went back to sleep, until 5 am of course, when he was hungry and sitting in a disgusting diaper. So I got up and changed him, fed him in his room and rocked him and we went right back to sleep, UNTIL I laid him in his bed. Never fear, I left him and went back to my bed, grabbed Adrian's hand and said a prayer that he would go to sleep. The sweet thing is: by the time I finished my prayer he was asleep. He slept til 8:30 this morning. Enough time for me to have one hour by myself with my tea outside, before he woke up. Now who could ask for more. We will continue and I am sure it will continue getting better.
Sleep makes for a happier baby and mommy all day..... even when I am a crazy mom, dressing him up in costumes in the middle of the day in September. Our friends loaned us this "lil stinker" costume and so I was seeing if it fit...it is snug right now, so probably not going to work for halloween with a body cast on too. oh well, makes for an adorable picture right now. it even has a bowtie...hehe:)
