Crawling & Snoozing


Yep that's right everyone, Ace is mobile! He has been ooching along in his own means of crawling for a few weeks now, but this week he finally figured out to get his knees up and under him. This video was taken on the first day he figured it all out, since then he gotten much faster and the gates have gone up! Our basement level of the house looks like a giant zoo - with many gates creating a giant pin for him to roam around in. The mid-level of the house looks mostly the same with the exception of the coffee table being moved to the corner and the fireplace has been padded to soften any blows.
In other exciting news! Ace slept through the night last night!!! Woohoo! He also slept in his own bed - which might have contributed to his slumbering for so long, but he's slept in his own bed before. Granted it took him TWO hours from bath time to sleep.... but that was all worth it for a night of uninterrupted sleep. Tonight we started around 8:30 with bath time and Ace slept at 9:45... so yes, we have a little boy that likes to fight the process of sleep... but I'm hoping he stays asleep for the second night in what would be the start of a beautiful trend.
Next up, talking and walking!

OK I'm going to give a bit of advice: you are doing it right, set a routine you can stick to, bath, books, bottle/nurse bed and sleep. It is a workable routine and that is what makes all the difference in the world. Both of my little ones sleep through the night and have since 6 months or so because we kept the same routine. Now they go to bed at 8 and get up at 8 like clockwork, they even say 'oh I'm tired can I go to bed?' You are doing a great job with your little angel keep up the good work. :)
