Welcome to my crib, yo.
In the chaos of the past few weeks, I forgot to post about moving Liam into his own room! He had been in a pack & play for our room, then when we went to visit Brian's parents over 4th of July, he slept in a crib in a different room. We hadn't really planned on moving him here yet, but when we came home, it seemed silly to take a step backwards since he did fine sleeping away from us at their house. So, off he went!
He is a pretty quiet sleeper once he's out, but he kind of "grunts" himself to sleep. I find it strangely comforting and almost enjoy hearing it over the monitor at night :) As far as his actual sleep goes, he's still doing well. We put him to bed around 10 or 10:30, he's usually up around 1 to eat, then back up around 4:30 or 5 to eat again, then out until 7:30 or so. While it's tiring to get up in the night, it's really not so bad because he goes right back down after eating. And when we initially put him down for the night, we're able to put him in his crib awake and like I said, he grunts himself to sleep :)
Ideally, I would love to start putting him IN bed earlier for the night (especially once I'm back to work) but we've tried a bit earlier twice and he's either wide awake & not wanting to go to sleep, or it seems to throw off his night and he's up more often.
