This is another topic where I know someone will read it, then laugh at me and say – “oh, just wait until he’s older!” I know that what I’m about to say won’t always be the case, which is exactly why I’m taking the time to enjoy it now.
Bedtime is my favorite routine of the day. Even on busy days when I get home late and tired and still have things I need to get done, I look forward to the cuddles.
First comes bathtime, which he loves. And seriously, is there anything better than the smell of freshly washed baby? Then he gets a bedtime snack nursing session, which he falls asleep while eating half the time.
If he’s still awake after his snack, we read a book together. He is just starting to get interested in the pictures, mostly in wanting to know how they taste. After stories, it’s good night kisses from Mommy and Daddy, then bedtime prayers. We stick with the classic “Now I lay me down to sleep…” and keep it short and simple.
Then more kisses, and into the crib he goes. Some nights he talks himself to sleep, but most of the time he is out like a light before I leave the room.
That’s if we ever made it upstairs in the first place haha! Being a baby is exhausting!
