Along with putting the house back together, Ayden and I got in some great floor time! This included playing with his new favorite toy for a while:
|He LOVES his Zany Zoo!|
Ayden's naps were all over the place again today so I got out my trusty copy of The Baby Whisperer Solves All Your Problems to see if I could find any answers. As it turns out, there was a whole section on "riding out the inconsistencies" around the sixth month. Because there is a crazy jump in development during this time, both mentally and physically, they are (and therefore their sleep is) all over the place. Reading this made me feel better. I NEED TO STOP STRESSING! I just need to stay as consistent as I can for him and once he gets through this phase, he'll fall back into his routine (until he hits the next phase).
A few months ago I wrote a post to my pregnant self and it was filled with things like, "stop worrying" and "all the effort you're putting in will pay off," etc. As I find my way through this first year of motherhood, I need to make sure that I don't get too caught up in worrying or over-analyzing and make sure that I enjoy it! I will keep working towards our goals but he is new at life, David and I are new at parenthood, and we are all on this wild and wonderful adventure together.
