night night time.
we have a pretty well established night time routine here in the frascone household. it has been the same (more or less) since easton was born and we plan on continuing that routine for our soon-to-be baby boy #2.
routines make me feel secure (and i'm a grown-up) so i totally believe in the value of routines for babies, toddlers, and kids. easton has gone to bed at or around the same time since he was born. bedtime usually goes something like this:
*light play time
*bath with daddy (yes, sometimes daddy even gets in!)
*jammies (his new thing is picking out his jams every night)
*book and milk with mama
in the early days of easton's life, tony wanted to have a "thing"that was just his and easton's- so bath time became that "thing." every night he gives easton a bath. when i say that i have only given e a bath a handful of times...i truly mean it. if tony isn't home- bath time doesn't happen.
a new and cool thing has just started to happen... easton has started to sing along with us as we sing his lullaby. every single night since the day he was born we sing:
"goodnight sweetheart, well it's time to gooooo...do do do do...goodnight sweetheart, well it's time to goooooo. i really hate to leave you, but i really must say....goodnight sweetheart goodnight."
it seriously melts my little heart to hear him sing along. it's just the sweetest thang.
