Eighteen Months!!

My little man is 18 months old today. It's so bittersweet. I can't believe how he is growing and changing every day. Today he weighed in at 20lbs 6oz and 32" long. That's 12.8 lbs gain and 12.5 inch gain in height since birth. Luckily while he was gaining that, mom was losing a whole lot more weight!

Nolan has been a notoriously horrible sleeper since birth. I thought we were on track because he had fallen into a pattern of going to sleep nicely on his own, waking twice during the night, and then sleeping until about 7am. He also never was a big napper but would at least go to sleep nicely even if his nap was short. Not anymore!! The past month he has only taken a handful of naps the entire time. He also started not going to bed nicely and taking up to two hours to finally go to sleep. Then of course once he is asleep he doesn't stay that way for long. Last night it was up every two hours then wide awake for a 1.5 hour stretch in the middle. He's exhausted and it is showing but nothing seems to be helping.

I tried putting him in to my bed for a nap this afternoon but after a few minutes he was jumping and crawling off the bed. I'm hoping this is a phase and maybe his canine teeth are about to erupt. Let's hope the next 18 months bring a little more sleep for both of us!!!
