Morning ritual

16 Jul

Reagan is so good right now when it comes to sleeping, we (Jamie) has given Reagan a routine at night and she expects it to be done the same every night 20:00 taken upstairs, bathed, dried lotioned, dressed, fed, winded, read to and sleep! It just works and allows mommy and daddy to spend time together late evening.

In a morning now I hear Reagan begin to fuss a little at 05:00ish but it is not until 06:30 or 07:00 that she wakes up properly and even then is happy enough laying there waiting for me to go and pick her up. Routine helps her know not to scream (although she can, aw man!) but that dad will be here in a minute and I will be good đŸ˜‰ So my morning routine now is to get up and sort me self out and then creep into where Reagan is laying whispering her name, upon seeing me her eyes dart around my face momentarily until she recognises me and a big grin appears on her face.

For me there is nothing better in the world than that smile every morning, I then scoop her up into my arms talking to her as I place her down on the changing table to get her out of her sleeping bag and change her nappy. While I do this she is smiling and almost giggling (she would if she knew how) so content is she at her life and that dad will get her out of the wet nappy into dry one and take her to mommy for breakfast lol!

Once she is back in her onesy I scoop her up again and carry her into our bedroom and place her right next to mommy and watch as again her eyes dart around mommy’s face momentarily until she recognises her and a big grin appears on her face again and my part is done it’s mom and daughter now! They usually feed and then both drift back to sleep…

Since the routines began we have never steered away even slightly so it will be interesting this weekend to see how she copes with no routine and how quickly she gets back into one next week?
