I love the huge grin - too bad he closed his eyes
Last night we took the little man to Senor Tequilas for dinner and he didn't make a peep the entire time. When we got home we lounged on the couch and watched some tv before giving him a bath in his bedtime bath and putting his bedtime lotion on him. I swaddled him in his new Summer Infant Swaddle Wrap and we gave him a bottle of milk I'd pumped earlier. We're trying this to see if maybe if we get a decent amount of milk in him he'll sleep longer.
At 11:30 he was still awake (he'd napped for almost 4 hours in the afternoon) and J needed to go to bed since he was getting up early to ride. I took Andrew out and sat in the rocker with him til he fell asleep 15 minutes later. I put him down at 11:45 and the next thing I knew it was 5:14 AM. He slept for 5 hours and 30 minutes. Way to go little man! Needless to say I was beyond thrilled.
I fed him the couple ounces I had left from pumping and then nursed him til he quit. He didn't eat that much, so I put him down and went downstairs to pump the rest before hopping back in bed. I woke up at 9:16 and heard him making a little bit of noise. He had slept for another 3 1/2 hours. Woo hoo! I actually felt like a human being when I got up!
We got ready and headed to the park for J's company picnic. He was a bit of a fuss butt and wanted to be held, but that's ok because everyone wanted to see him anyway. We had taken a bottle along with us (I'm still not ready to nurse in public). He did great and we had a nice afternoon.
I did get him to nap in the stroller for about 15 minutes so I could eat
Now he is snoozing on the couch while I do some of his laundry so I have a fresh gown to put him in after tonight's bath. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he gives us a repeat performance of last night.
