Flying Solo

Last night Charles and I spent the evening without our beloved JA (who was on Long Island for an early meeting). I'm proud to say that we survived! :)  Charles went to bed at 8 and was up at 12, 3:30ish, and 6:30ish to eat. And since it's been a while since I documented one of his days, I thought I'd do that again in honor of his seven week birthday.

nurse 6:30 to 6:50 am

fell asleep on mom until 7:10

talked to each other until 7:30 (I did most of the talking, but Charlie contributed a little bit.)

diaper change (wet and dirty)

swaddle time; fell asleep from 8:20-8:45 (pack n play)

nurse 8:45 to 9:08 (burp for a few minutes)

play until 9:35

change diaper (wet)

swaddle at 9:40

sleep 9:50-10:45 (pack n play - Mom slept too!)

nurse 10:45-11:08

cuddle with mom until 11:28

play 11:30-11:50

diaper change (wet/just a bit dirty)

swaddle at 12:00

asleep from 12:20-12:45 (pack n play)

nurse from 12:47-1:10

play with Mommy in my Baby Bjorn bouncer until 1:40

change diaper (wet)

swaddle at 1:50

asleep from 2:07 to 4:00 (what a difference it makes when he sleeps in my arms!)

nurse from 4:02-4:10

4:12 to 4:48 fall asleep on mom's chest (mom takes this opportunity to clip my fingernails)

nurse from 4:48-5:04; Charlie seems unsettled, which means he either needs to burp or poop (see below for the answer

5:20 - diaper change (wet and DIRTY!!!) :)

play in my aquarium bouncy seat with Daddy from 5:20 to 6:00 (Mommy does laundry)

swaddle at 6:00

nap on mommy's lap from 6:15 to 6:40

nurse from 6:45 to 7:05

diaper change (wet)

hang out with Mommy and Daddy until 7:45, then head upstairs for PJs and SwaddleMe

nurse from 8:00 to 8:08, followed by a long burp session, followed by an extended "Keep Charlie upright as long as possible before bedtime to avoid spit-up disasters."

bedtime at 9:00 (Mommy heads downstairs to eat something, do a little more laundry, then go to bed herself.)

I assume I'll be up around midnight to start the whole process all over again. I've said it before and I'll say it again... it's a good thing he's cute!

Charles learns to multi-task at an early age by combining tummy time with "air time" for his tushie. :)
