Wakes up anywhere between 5:30-6:30am and nurses. He will either go right back to sleep or sometimes plays for a hour or so, then falls back asleep around 7:30. He will then sleep until around 9:30-10:00 and want to nurse again. He will play hard until he's ready for a short nap, usually from 11:00-11:45. He will nurse anywhere between 12:30-1:30. He will enjoy some tummy time, sit in his bouncer, play on his playmat, watch his favorite Bible action songs DVD, and smile at mama! He typically takes a long 3 hr afternoon nap! He has been sleeping from about 2-5. He will stay up after that until his 8 o'clock bath time! Our nightly routine is to read "I Couldn't love you more" and one of his Bible stories and/or Bedtime Prayer book, take a bath, nurse, burp and rock, then straight to bed. He's in bed every night by 9pm. He's such a dream when it comes to night time! He goes down for night-night so easily!
Weston is still eating every 3 hours, in fact sometimes we're back to every 2, must be a growth spurt! He's still a strong eater! Since he's sleeping through the night, he has to make up for those missed meals during the day...which he's good at doing! =) He's so sweet when he nurses, he will wrap one arm around me and the other hand is up by his hear just rubbing his head and ear! ADORABLE! He almost always closes his little eyes during each feeding too!
