Two Mondays ago, Isaac turned 8 weeks old. Isaac surprised us over the weekend by sleeping 8 consecutive hours one night, and then 7.5 the next! It was great to get some extra sleep before he went back to his regular pattern of getting up once at night.
I recently purchased a used swing to act as another set of hands while I am getting myself and Duncan dressed in the morning. Fortunately Elsie can dress herself! In Isaac's eighth week, it was finally successful! He happily sat in his swing watching the fish swim by while I got us ready...and then he fell asleep!
Isaac wakes up from his afternoon nap sometime between 3 and 5. Then he doesn't want to go to bed again until 9-10. He gets sleepy in between, but just wants to take short naps in our arms. After bath time for Elsie and Duncan, Daddy took a brief rest from holding out little Isaac.
Great Grandma Sonneveldt came for a visit for Aunt Kaye's wedding, and got a few snuggles with Isaac.
Smiles for Great Grandma Sonneveldt!
