Starting last Friday, Jasper's been sleeping 8 hours (+/-) each night with a long morning and usually at least one long afternoon nap. It's been a total treat, and we're trying not to get too attached to it since it'll probably disappear again and he'll be back to middle of the night feedings.
Yesterday (Valentine's day) he got on a completely different schedule. After his morning nap, he didn't sleep more than 30 or 40 minutes at a time, and he was eating every 2 hours. This is completely abnormal for him. Not even when he was new born did he eat that frequently. Thank goodness, b/c by the end of the day I was exhausted! I don't know how some moms are able to feed that frequently. Drew's standard comment "he's growing!" is probably applicable here - in that he's probably trying to boost my milk supply for his next growth spurt. Or maybe he was just a little off kilter yesterday. Who knows! Today he is back to his more normal schedule of longer naps. It's always a guessing game as to what the day will hold .... I just hang out and wait to see what happens. Since he doesn't like going out on errands, I don't want to force it if I can't predict when he'll be hungry again. Maybe we'll head out again tomorrow.
On Sunday I told Jasper about Sunday afternoon naps, and he agreed we should take one. After he was done nursing, he crashed with me on the couch.
Jasper at 9weeks.
Here is his outfit for his first trip to church. We just went to the worship service on Feb 3rd, but he was a trooper and did well even though he was awake the whole time. This past Sunday we went to both the worship service and Sunday school. He was awake for the service and slept right through Sunday school. He was a good boy!

We love to read Big Red Barn. It isn't always a sure bet to calm him down, but I think the lyrical text is really appealing to him. It's one of my favorites to read. Perhaps my mother's love of farms imprinted itself on my DNA too. :)
