Bedtime Routine

For what seems like forever, we have been trying to establish a bedtime routine for Lincoln. For the first two months of his life, he would only sleep on his daddy's chest at night. This made for two long months of sleeping on the couch...the three of us. For the past few weeks however, Lincoln has [finally] been sleeping in his crib! It just seemed to magically happen one night, and he's been a trooper ever since! We will normally put him down around 9 or 10pm, and he'll sleep until about 4am. After his bottle, he'll go back to sleep until around 7am. This is h.e.a.v.e.n.! I am finally able to enjoy my brandy new temperpedic mattress :) This makes a very happy mommy (and daddy, cause he was getting quite cranky himself!) Part of his bedtime success is the magical Fisher Price Seahorse. This thing is a godsend let me tell you! He sleeps with his seahorse every night, and LOVES the music it plays. He loves the music so much, that we recently bought him a cd player to play lullabye's for him to fall asleep to. Slowly but surely, I'm figuring this whole mommy thing out ;)

Name Change!

Yup...I'm changing the name of my blog! "Everyday Adventures of our Life" is now "The Mommy Diaries." I wanted something more catchy, and thought this title was much more fitting! I also added my blog to and You can vote for us if you click the icon that's on my right column! I figured if I added my blog to those sites, I'd be motivated to update it more. Anyways, that's all for now...hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
