Anderson is sleeping well at night besides waking up with congestion. I wish the congestion would just go away. We have a humidifier and James did some research and ordered a Nose Frida. I was grossed out at first but it really has helped. Sometimes nothing works and that is when his sleep is restless. We can't blame him, poor little guy! The naps during the day are what we are struggling with a bit. Normally Anderson falls asleep eating and then I put him down for naps. He sleeps so well and so long but I have read that it will come back to haunt me sooner than later. I have been reading The Baby Whisperer and am now trying the E.A.S.Y. schedule. It is not easy by any means! My main goal is to try to help Anderson differentiate between eating time and sleeping time. I also think he was overstimulated because we kept him up too long between naps. I'm exhausted trying to get this little guy to go to sleep on his own without eating but we have had two successful naps after trying the four S's from the book. I have read it cover to cover and it has some great information.
Last night Anderson and I picked up James from work and we met two friends at our favorite sushi place near our old rental home. We hadn't been there since I got pregnant and it was more fabulous than I remembered. Anderson slept through dinner and did great! It was nice to get out. Tonight we are having four friends over and they each have one year olds. It should be fun. I hope everyone has a great weekend. We had to get outside because the weather is supposed to get icky for the next few days. James went for a bike ride, I took Anderson for a walk/run, and I kept James company for a few minutes while he raked leaves. So far a great weekend!

It is hard, but it is so worth it when they are older to just lay them down and let them go to sleep on their own. Aiden is dealing with some congestion too- no fun!
