Once I started to get the hang of things, Jack decides he wants to get up in the middle of the night again. It's tough getting up for him now that I know what he's capable of doing. I went back to my log, and he hasn't woken up in the middle of the night for a couple of weeks now. He's been consistently sleeping about 7.5-8 hours - even made it just over 8.5 hours one night! He did about 5 hours Sunday night, and 6.5 hours last night. I guess that's really not too bad. I just wish he was more consistent. I've been letting him cry it out for the first 15 minutes to see if he'd fall back asleep, but no luck either day. I'm hoping tonight that he'll be back to "normal".
As for the daytime, he's still fussy. I guess if I had the option to choose, I'd pick fussy during the day over during the night. I think one of the reasons he's so fussy is because I can't seem to figure out his naps. We eat, play for a while (sing, take a walk, talk, shop, people watch, meet a friend for lunch, do our arithmetic and work on our latin - just kidding!), then try to nap - but his naps seem to only last for 30 to 40 minutes. Friends have suggested journaling what he does for a week to see his patterns, but I haven't done that yet. Maybe I'll start tomorrow. Anyone have any suggestions on what I could do about the nap situation? I'm also looking for more ideas for other "waketime/playtime" things I can do with Jack, so please let me know if you have any recommendations!! Thanks!!
