2 nights in a row

Some of you know that my son has a little bit of a problem sleeping. Well I am happy to report that Jake slept through the night two nights in a row for the first time. I can't even tell you how happy we are. We are hoping that he keeps it up and that our sleepless nights are a thing of the past.
I had an early education teacher come out to the house the other day and she gave me some good tips and they're working. It seems that Jake wasn't getting enough sleep during the day. He was taking one long nap in the afternoon. Now he is taking a nap in the morning and one is the afternoon and going to bed an hour later. He seems to be a lot happier.

I'm now feeding Jake in his high chair because he is getting really messy. Before I would just use his bouncy seat. I had to stop that when he started spitting his food at me.. He loves peas, squash, sweet potatoes, bananas, apples, pears... Pretty much everything. I can't wait until he gets some teeth and can try some more foods. We think he will cut a tooth very soon. We can feel it when we rub his gums.

One of Jake's favorite things to do is bounce and lately he has been falling asleep while bouncing.

Holding his head up has been something that Jake doesn't like to do. Here we are doing some tummy time to work those neck muscles. Therapy is helping so much.

This is one of Jake's favorite things to do with his NUK and it cracks me up.. He is just soooo goofy.

This is one of Jake's favorite toys.

Glad to hear the new routine is working better for you guys and it's great to see Jake hold his head up like that!
