We've started a sleep routine last night...and happy to share it was a very good night here!  Mom and dad were both able to sleep in their own bed together and Blake in his own crib.  We've started a strict bedtime routine, which includes a bath between 8:30-9:00pm, then a lotion massage with the lights low while we prepare for bed.  Next is his night time feed while being rocked, followed by a book read, diaper change, then down (while still awake) on his tummy.  Yes, Blake is a tummy sleeper.  Could be why we haven't gotten much more than a couple hours of sleep out of him at a time on his back (or in his Boppy).

First night of this routine, Blake managed to sleep from 9:30pm - 2:15am.  When he woke he had a bottle and then nursed for a few minutes.  He was put down again in his crib where he squirmed around on his back.  I then placed him on his tummy where he fell to sleep immediately.  He slept form 2:30am - 6:00am that stretch!

Since his 6:30am feed Blake has been playing, smiling, cooing and being a gorgeous little baby!!!  Needless to say, we're all a little more rested this morning!
