Don’t you love how his blanket and onesie match? One of his sleep sacks matches, too – all are from the Dwell line for Target. I have to say that I love these kimono-style onesies so I’ve started using them, even though they’re still a little bit too big. Baby clothes makers take note – things that go over the baby’s head are not fun! He doesn’t like squeezing through, we’re trying to avoid squeezing the soft spots, and it’s not a pretty picture. I’m not quite sure why more baby pants don’t have the feet attached, either, except that maybe then you can roll up the bottoms and socks are warmer. But not easy to get on and to get to stay on.
So things do get easier! I had a really productive day on Saturday and realized that it’s because I can put Will down sometimes now – as much as I love snuggling with him, you can feel kind of tied down sometimes. Now he’ll fall asleep for a nap in his swing sometimes, and will sit and play in his bouncy chair, too. He’s not grabbing toys yet, but kicks at the rattles above his chair quite a bit. He used to focus on the mirror in the middle the most, but now it’s the rattle that catches his attention.
Last night Will slept for 6 hours (midnight to 6 am) for the first time, and then 2.5 hours more after his morning feeding. I don’t expect it to happen every night, but it’s nice to know it’s on the way! He’s on a pretty steady schedule during the day – he eats, stays up for an hour or hour and a half, and then goes down for a nap until it’s time to wake him up to eat again. I don’t force it, though – if he doesn’t fall asleep for the nap sometimes I feed him again. Last night he catnapped throughout the evening before bedtime.
