Jack has been doing much better with nighttime sleeping since our respiratory therapist changed the rise on his inspiratory time. I'm not even sure what that means so I can't really explain it to you but it seems to be working. Also, I am working very hard on fixing our problem of being overtired. I am getting Jack in bed earlier and we are trying to stick to a nightly routine which I start BEFORE he is about to pass out. After reading alot of the no-cry sleep solution for toddlers and preschoolers by Elizabeth Pantley, it has dawned on me (DUH!) that although it is difficult, I have to try harder to get Jack to take a longer nap or at least have quiet time. He's been terribly sleep deprived. I can already tell a big difference after just one long nap today. Imagine what he'll do when it becomes a regular habit!
On another note, we went to a block party this afternoon and Jack just loved the little boy's Vtech 3-in-1 Smart Wheels so if you are wondering what to get Jack for his birthday next month....they are sold at Wal-Mart, Target, and Toys R Us. The suggested retail price is $39.99 so you may want to get a couple of people to go in on it with you. Also, he can always use more books with bright crisp colorful illustrations. Oh yeah, how much is a sandbox or does someone want to volunteer to build one? I think Jack would enjoy it if he'd try it. Oooohh, also I know he would love one of those sand and water tables for outdoor play.
