In short, people, we had a very busy weekend and what we ended up with was one overtired little baby. He normally doesn't cry too much but Sunday and Monday were full of mega screams. He was so tired that he wouldn't sleep for more than 10mins without waking up and screaming. I ended up holding him for both of his morning sleeps (generally he has a short sleep at around 8:30am and then a longer one at around 11:30) but by the afternoon, he had a lovely, long afternoon nap and was back to his chipper, smiley self.
It was a good lesson. There wasn't that much we could do about the fact that we had two birthday's on the weekends but I learned that I must put JBB's schedule front and centre. I also learned that if we do have a busy time that we need to make sure that there is a down day right after so that he can catch up on his sleep. That being said, he is a very social baby so I definitely need not deprive him of outings, he loves the stimulation. He is having a nice long morning nap right now and then we are going to go for a walk up to the shops.
Here are some cutie pie pics that my auntie took when we were out to lunch a couple of weeks ago!!
