Preston has discovered a new game. He runs into our closet and "hides" behind the clothes that hang down low enough to cover his face. He believes that if he can't see me, than I can't see him. Then I come in "in search" of him. I call out, "Preston where are you??" a few times. And out he pops laughing and smiling. After a quick hug, he heads back behind the clothes. Imagine this on repeat and you've got a perfect example of our night. lol. It was cute.
Preston woke up at the crack of dawn this morning. Okay, it really wasn't that early. But is felt like it since he goes to bed late and usually doesn't get up until 9am. But oh no, not this morning. Not on my weekend day to get up with him. Today he was up bright and early at 7am. I was barely functional and he was bouncing off the walls. The positive side of this?? He took a nap much earlier than usual. Unfortunately because he was so tired that nap lasted 5.5 hours!! Hmmm, maybe that wasn't so unfortunate because I laid down with him, so that means that I also took a very long afternoon nap.
Tonight as Preston was fussing and getting cranky I looked at him and asked if he was ready for bed. He got all excited, which is what he does when he wants to do something that I've asked him. So I told him to grab his blankie and we'd go to bed. He seemed a little bit confused so I repeated for him to grab his blankie and head to the bedroom for bed, and off he went carrying his blankie. Then after a game of hide and seek in the closet, down he went for bed without a peep. I think that he enjoying going to bed in his own bed because the last two nights he has gone straight to sleep when I lay him down in his crib. This is a far cry from the temper tantrums he was throwing at my parent's house at bedtime.
I think I'm off to bed now too. That middle afternoon nap kept me from getting things done today, so we're going to be busy tomorrow!!
