If you had told my Mommy back when I was a few weeks old that I would turn into a good sleeper, she wouldn’t have believed it.
If she had believed it, she would’ve given you kisses. Really. That’s what she told me.
I guess I wasn’t a great sleeper back then. I don’t really remember, but that’s what the ‘rents tell me.
These days, I do like my zzzzz’s.
Mommy and Daddy put me to bed around 7pm. Sometimes a bit earlier, since by then I am super-tired.
Our bedtime routine is always the same: around 6 or 6:10, I get some solid food. Then we go upstairs and Mommy or Daddy read me a story. After that we take a bath and then Mommy nurses me one more time before I go to sleep. Oh yeah, and she prays for me while I nurse.
We have a good thing going, and it works so well that I don’t wake up until 7 or 7:30 the next morning.
By then, I’m ready for them to wake up and play with me! But I get wiped out pretty easily and take my first nap around 9 or 9:30. As I’ve gotten older, this nap has gotten longer and longer to where now I nap anywhere from an hour fifteen minutes to sometimes over two hours!
Then it’s back up for some more play time until around 1 or so, when I take my next nap.
This one lasts about an hour to hour and a half.
After that, I’m up for the rest of the day! So that’s when we usually go on our adventures.
Mommy takes me to run errands, or to play with friends and sometimes Daddy even goes with us! In the past week, we’ve gone to the mall, Costco, Target, and to buy shoes.
Anyway, that’s our little family routine.
It works for us.
