bedtime routine

since last week, we've started peanut on a new bedtime routine.

it seems to be working!

around 9:30 - 10:00, she has her bath time with her daddy.

this is their little time together.

no mommy allowed.

she gets "lo-lo'ed" up with lavender bedtime lotion.  (aka miracle lotion.)

gets her "jammers" on.

nurses and then we rock for a little bit.  (btw, i am not nursing in this picture!  i think i was holding her paci in.)

we top her off with a little formula to make sure she's full.

and rock a little more.

by this time, it's usually 11:00pm.

and she's out like a light while holding her blank.

well, until 2-3am!  =)

So cute how you documented all of that with the pictures! It will get better; with both of our girls the 10 lb. mark seemed to be key! With Addison, it was 8-9 weeks and Maggie, 10-11 weeks and they were both sleeping a 7-8 hour stretch at night and that was all I could ask for before going back to work! Now, they are both in bed by 8:30 at the latest and Maggie likes to get up early (6) and Addison sleeps until someone wakes her up! Austin is a doll; glad to know that y'all are doing well.
