Dragons and Babies

So if you know Bryan and me at all you will know that we love love love going to the movies. Our first year of marriage we saw 47 movies in 52 weeks. So when we saw a preview for How to Train Your Dragon we knew we wanted to see it, but we knew we would have a baby that would be around a month old. Well we figured we would try to take the baby with us, we were going to risk waking up the baby when the big Dragon fight occured, took a chance that he wouldn't start to fuss and cry in the middle forcing us to leave and waste $30.

Thank freaking goodness we have a freaking angel baby. He fell asleep in his baby bjorn as soon as we got out of the car, slept on Bryan's chest for about 45 min, ate a bottle and then fell back to sleep. The movie got really loud at times but he just slept through it. Thank goodness. We now know that we can go to movies and have a little bit of our normal life back.
I know that I have complained in the past about not sleeping or how hard it is but honestly I am amazingly lucky. For the past week and a half he was been sleeping for about 5-6 hours straight, waking up and feeding and then sleeping another 2-3 hours; we are amazingly lucky that he does that at 5 weeks. He is still extremely needy, does not like to be set in his bouncer or swing and demands to be held if he is awake but overall he is a very good baby and I am loving the fact that I am his mom.
By the way here are a couple pics to make everyone happy
Who doesn't like a naked baby

He loves to balance on Bryan

How fun! Our baby is the same way. I am sure you have been getting oodles of advice, but the best we got was to read "Babywise". Jackson slept about 7 hours at 6 weeks and then at about three months ten hours through the night and has ever since. I haven't had to get up in the middle of the night for months! We really believe in it; I have other friends who do as well. Plus, Jackson takes two two-three hour naps a day at 8 months old. He is healthy, happy, and we are too! I try reading that-it's about balancing between sticking to a rigid schedule and going with theirs. If you only go with their schedule, they end up running your life. If you force them to go with your schedule, they won't be happy. Anyway, it's a great method and really works!
