Anywho...just thought I'd document a typical night in the Herring household. Also, Griffin has been LOVING his baths lately, so we wanted to get that on camera too. We've got a new strategy for bedtime (since the fussiness has increased while changing diapers and putting pajamas on - I really think he just can't stand to sit still). We are now doing bath time / diaper time / pajama time BEFORE we feed him his bottle. This way, when he falls asleep while eating (which he often does) we don't have to wake him up to do all of the above.
Here's a glimpse into bath time!
And now here is a glimpse into how much Griffin dislikes getting ready for bed...
But after that, it's usually smooth sailing. Griffin relaxes while Dada feeds him his bottle. More often than not, he is asleep as soon as he finishes.
This way, we can just go put him right in his crib. If he's not asleep, we read to him before putting him to bed. I will say, Griffin has always been GREAT at going to bed at night. He just rolls on over, snuggles with his doggie blanket, and drifts off to sleep. Nothing sweeter!
