Sleeping Patterns and Duration 

One of the things Matt and I  were told the most as I was closer to delivering our baby was to get sleep, as neither us, nor our baby would get any for many years. Babies do sleep, of course, though it unpredictable as to when they will. William loves sleeping with his whale blanket and in this photo soon after he fell asleep was joined by Inky who does like to be next to him from time to time, as opposed to avoiding him, which she is more likely to do when he is awake and energized.

Many things can influence how well a baby sleeps. I’d heard that 11 pounds was a magic weight and when William reached it, he would sleep through the night without waking even to eat. This did not happen. However, just a few days ago he did so for the first time and while we know this may not happen again for a while, I was delighted to be able to use this card.

I love his expressions in them, from happy to confused to downright ironically yawning and probably genuinely still tired in one.

One thing is certain. He still loves his car seat, almost always falling asleep in it when we go for a drive and sometimes falling asleep in it when we use it just as a chair inside for him.
