mr. sleepy head
So this week is turning out to be rather the opposite of last week. Instead of major hysterics and little naps, the past couple days Asher has been sleeping SO much and when he's awake he's quite happy! Yesterday he took like 5 naps, one of which was 3 hours long. (The others were all under an hour.) Last night he slept for more than 7 hours straight which was lovely. Today he took a nap this morning, was up for an hour or so, then fell asleep again this afternoon for around 3 hours! I was laying on the bed with him for that nap, and he did wake up enough to eat at one point but then was right back to sleep. And then just a few minutes ago we were both on the bed-- I was on the laptop and he was laying here playing with his monkey. I realized I hadn't felt him move in a little bit and looked down and he was totally asleep! He never falls asleep on his own like that. He pretty much always has to fall asleep in our arms and then be laid down. I think he is having a major growth spurt. I swear he looks bigger every time he wakes up! We go to the doctor on Friday for his four month check up (can you believe he is four months old already?!) and I am excited to see how he's measuring up. And to find out if all this sleeping is normal! He hasn't slept this much during the day since he was a newborn.
