William is Eighteen Weeks 

I’ve heard from many people that babies do best on a schedule. One of the most important things to try and schedule is sleep. He’s not sleeping through the night yet, waking several times to breast feed, yet we did get his bed time down so now he is in bed, asleep by 8 p.m. or sooner.

In the past he’d wear whatever he had on for sleep time. This is one of my favorite photos of him sleeping with his arms in a goal post position.

With him getting older and being able to roll over, his new routine involves putting him in a Sleep Sack for his evening bedtime. One day I put him in his Sack for a nap to see what would happen and he took a three hour nap, the longest I can remember him taking for me ever.

Matt said this probably fooled him into thinking it was really his nightly bedtime. However, that trick didn’t seem to work a second time, so now it’s just Sleep Sacks for his true bedtime sleep.

His big wish now is to crawl. He gets so focused trying to do so, and has even cried in frustration when he cannot do so. Even though he’s months away from that, he knows it’s something in his future.

I had looked forward to him achieving four months as I wanted him to try out the Sippy Trainer cup I had bought him for Christmas. I was all ready to capture in photos this first for him and my blog.

However, he had little interest in drinking from it and none at all in trying to hold it. We will have to try again at another time.

It’s fun seeing how he develops, what things he does at the expected times, and which ones he does at different times.
