Menu Plan Monday
Last week, Nathan had several days off in a row and we got to enjoy some much needed family time.
William kicked off the family fun weekend by surprising us and sleeping an 8.5 hour stretch at night for the very first time! Of course, the next night his stretch was 7.5 hours...the next night was 6.5 hours...and last night, was...you guessed it...5.5 hours. I'd be willing to pay someone if they could figure out why he's regressing. We were definitely getting used to the longer stretches!
In an attempt to find some optimism is all of this, I am telling myself that his progress (albeit very short lived) is something to be proud of - at least we know he's capable of sleeping 8.5 hours at 2 months old. Now whether he chooses to do so again is entirely up to him, but doggonit he can do it! And every. single. night. that I tuck him in, you better believe I remind him of his capabilities.
Phrases like..."William, wouldn't it feel so good to sleep 12 hours tonight?"..."We've had such a hard day, wouldn't it feel nice to sleep a long, long time tonight?"...are becoming part of our bedtime routine. :)
Here's hoping those longer stretches weren't just flukes, and are soon to become a norm around here!
Monday - Shrimp and Garlic Pasta
Tuesday - Chicken Philly Cheese Sandwiches (a roll over from last week)
Wednesday - Monterey Chicken (a roll over from last week that we didn't get to try)
Thursday - Cheeseburger Subs (a new recipe requested by Nathan)
Friday - Burgers from the grill
