JJ ~ Yay for 6 months of EBF! From here on out it will begin to be less demanding. When I was at my mom's and had to go out I didn't have to worry about being gone for more than 2 hours because I knew she could feed him whatever. Even with sleep, he likes to nurse to sleep when he's with me but can fall asleep other ways when he's with others. One time when dh and I were out, maybe at the bank already refinancing the truck loan (I'll tell you all about that later.), when we got home my mom said that Dylan had fallen asleep in his high chair. She didn't even notice. Kellen told her. I think she was making food for everyone. Alas, when she tried to put him down in bed he woke up but he went right back to sleep when I got home and nursed him.
On that note, he's been asleep now since 8:30. I know I should go to bed but I'm enjoying being able to stay up and watch some X-Files.
Ethan was like those 2yos, waking 3-4 times a night. It wasn't too bad then. There's something different when an older baby/toddler wakes. I guess because they can understand more it's not so hard getting them back to sleep (maybe).
Did you all see the pic I posted of Ryan on FB? No one commented. I thought I'd get a lot of shocked comments.
