Some Wyatt Updates

Wyatt has officially moved into his own room, all by himself.

I know everyone has their own ideas about kids and sleeping arrangements but this is what we have done. All three kids have slept in our room, in a separate cradle/pack & play, for the first six months. Not one of them has ever slept in our bed at night. At six months they moved into the nursery. The girls shared a crib until they were about 14 or 15 months old and then each went into their own crib. At 17ish months they started climbing out of those cribs and moved into toddler beds, which they are still in. The first couple of nights Wyatt slept in the nursery I slept on the twin bed in there to help him adjust. The first night he woke up 3 times and seemed to realize he was in a different place. The next two nights he didn’t wake at all, and when he woke up in the morning he happily looked and kicked around. The first night he slept in his room alone I accidentally had the monitor turned way down and didn’t even hear him. I got up once to check on all of the kids (the girls have been running some low grade fevers but have no other symptoms) and I found him mostly asleep but sucking vigorously on his thumb (which he only does when hungry). Since he was mostly asleep I went back to bed, but heard him making more noise a few minutes later so I just got up and fed him. He went right back to sleep in his bed and didn’t stir until the morning. He wakes up so quite and happy even with the monitor it is hard to tell when he is awake.

He still likes to sleep with a foot out of the bars on his bed, although the crib only allows one foot not most of his leg like the cradle did. I think he knows he is going to be tall and figures he has a lifetime ahead of him of his feet hanging over the edge of the bed. That is actually the way I sleep. On my stomach all the way down the bed with my feet hanging over. Oh, it is so comfortable. It is the thing I miss most when I am pregnant.

Wyatt is also making progress with his solid foods. He still isn’t loving them, but he gags far less than he did the first two days, and so far likes the rice cereal more than the oatmeal. He will be trying peas later today!

“Mom, what is with all the pink bowls? You have a boy now, time to update things a bit!”
