Our bedtime routine for Watson hasn’t changed much since I posted about it last when he was 5 months old. Bath, bottle, reading time, bed… all pretty much the same, just a little more relaxed now. We start off with a bath at about 7pm or so, which in our new house is actually in a real bath tub, ha ha. (He got baths in the sink every night in our old house because the kitchen was a much more comfortable space than the guest bath!)
This tub is in Watson’s very own bathroom in his very own room… and he LOVES it. During the middle of the day, he runs in his bathroom with all his clothes on and climbs into the bathtub just to play with his toys in the dry tub. Yes, he climbs up on the edge and throws himself over. He has no fear.
Then we get all changed into jammies. I bought this cute “shoot for the moon” t-shirt for him from Nordstrom knowing we had the solar eclipse coming up. Had to have these matching moon and star jogger pants to go with it. They aren’t meant to be jammies, but these two are SO comfy—and I’m just over here wishing I had a set in my size. But, I’m wearing this PJ set, which I’ve got to say is one of the best feeling sets of jammies I own.
I had never really thought to order Watson’s pajamas from Nordstrom, but they have so many cute casual play clothes that can honestly be worn as day wear or for sleeping. Here are some favorites for toddlers below! With how quickly these little babes grow, I’m all for any clothing that serves multiple purposes. And like pretty much anything from Nordstrom, you know the quality of the fabrics are going to be really good and soft.
Then we read a book. Normally Brandon reads to us, but he was behind the camera this time. 🙂
This “If I Were a Bunny” book is one of our favorites! It has touch and feel pages and it’s really cute.
Since this outfit of Watson’s is not meant to be pajamas, I ordered him these precious precious little Toms for if he were to wear it out and about. I don’t think there is anything sweeter than tiny baby shoes. (Or toddler shoes!)
Then when he has a couple of ounces of milk left, he normally hops down and wants to adventure around his room. He climbs up on his “rocking horse,” which was a Christmas gift, but this one is very similar.
He’s so sweet with all of his stuffed toys. They are his babies and he gives them each kisses and hugs.
Then after he gets those last wiggles out, he hops back on my lap (or Brandon’s) and finishes his bottle. We are still working on transitioning to a sippy cup ONLY, but for bedtime, I totally let it slide. You know when you’re a parent, you’ve kind of got to pick your battles.
Hugs and kisses!!
Then it’s bedtime. It’s normally 7:30 around this time. We say our prayers, give a kiss goodnight, and put him in his crib. He’s always awake, but we walk out the room and let him settle himself to sleep. Sometimes he blows us a kiss before we pull the door to.
