Happy Friday!

TGIF!!!!  Nicholas has had a much, much better week at school (daycare) this week.  He has only had three meltdowns and that was two on Monday and one on Tuesday.  The rest of the week was perfect!  His teacher told me this morning he is a very funny, sweet baby.  Apparently he spent the day yesterday just smiling, laughing, and cooing.  Much better than the screaming he did the entire first week!

Just to show you how happy he has been, here are two pictures I took of him on Wednesday night when we got home before bathtime.  He was very happy!!!

 We have gotten into a pretty good routine these days.  We get home between 5:30 and 6:00 and he is usually hungry by then, so we eat a full bottle.  After that I start his bath and then after we have had a bath and gotten dressed for bed we play for a few minutes.  Between 6:45-7 I start rocking him to sleep with his sound machine and Praise Baby CD on.  He is usually out within five to ten minutes.  He has been sleeping about eleven and half hours at night and wakes up between 6:30 and 7 am!!!!  I'm so proud of how well he has done this week!!!  He has even taken good naps at school, even though the longest ones are always in a swing or bouncy.

Today he spent most of the day in a different class because his teacher went home sick.  Apparently Mr. Nosey-Rosey didn't want to stop playing and looking around long enough to take a nap, so as soon as we got home I put him in his swing and after a few minutes being fussy, this is how he spent his Friday evening...
I am going to wake him soon to eat, take a bath, and hopefully still go to bed on time.  We'll see.  At least it isn't a work night for me if he gets off schedule.  We sure are glad it is Friday around here!  Hope everyone has a very good, safe weekend!
