Henry was awake this morning at 5:13 AM. I might have forgotten to tell Charlie my plan to let him stay in his crib until 6:00 AM, because my husband popped out of bed - ran to get him - and stuck him next to me before I even knew what was happening.
I nursed him for about 45 minutes, although I'm not entirely sure because I fell back to sleep, and we all woke up for the day at 6:45 when I screamed because Carolyn was trying to give me butterfly kisses while I slept. Holy crap. Have you ever woken up with a face in your face staring at you - and not expected that face to be there at all?
After crawling around on the floor for a while and playing with various toys, Henry had breakfast at around 8:10 and was yawning from his highchair by 8:40. He was in his crib by 8:45 and after approximately five minutes of crying - (which could better be described as whining) - was asleep. He made some crying sounds at 9:30, but I decided to give him a few minutes and after less than two, he was back to sleep. He woke up babbling at 10:15.
Now, granted - this isn't the first time I put him in his crib for his morning nap, but it is the first time that he has slept for an hour and a half. Keys to success: putting him down earlier and not rushing to grab him at the first noise he makes.
We are now off to the park.
