Big News.

Thatcher is such an amazing little guy. He has been such a good sleeper since he was born, and even more so since he was 7 weeks old when he decided on his own to sleep through the night. Last week Jimmy and I decided that we would dedicate this week to dropping Thatchers "dream feed" (his 9:30 feed). We did a lot of talking about "what if he isn't ready" and "what if he wakes up at 5 a.m. thinking its time to get up". I am extremely happy to report that our little Thatcher Ace slept from 7:45 p.m to 7:30 a.m! Jimmy and I woke up at 7:15 and were so shocked that our little man was still asleep. We went in and woke him up at 7:30 for his morning feed! What a champ. We are hoping it was not just a one night thing and that he will be able to keep his 12 hour a night sleep. We know it can take a week or so to establish a new routine, but we are just so proud of him already. I just can not believe he will be 4 months next week. Speaking of 4 months, Thatcher has been one drolly little guy. He has been drooling and sucking on his hands, arm, and toys for a week or so now. Perhaps he is teething? Maybe, maybe not but either way, so crazy!!

In other big news Thatcher, Jimmy and I went for a family walk after we had dinner last night. Thatch rode in the Ergo and loved it. He can officially ride with out the infant insert. We also tried him in his bumbo and he love it (i think, he kinda looked unsure but he didn't cry). He is just growing up daily right in front of my eyes. It is so fun, so sweet and so exciting!


  1. every time i see thatch he looks so much older! can't believe it's been almost 4 months. and yay for dropping the dream feed--he is one amazing babe!!

  2. i LOVE the ergo! don't they seem so mature once they're out of that infant insert? he is beyond adorable.
