Trying to get Vince to sleep longer in the morning has not been easy. We tried by putting him to bed later for the whole European Soccer Championship - 6 long weeks, the child went to bed in the pause, which was apprx 9.30 pm, still he was up at the crack of dawn +/- 5 am. Now we tried again for a few weeks, he is going ot bed around 9ish and believe it or not (I am terrified putting this in writing as it may jinx it up totally) he has been sleeping till 6.30-7 in the morning. It has been great. He is also really funny at night, and I love that he is awake when I come home. Lately, he has been obsessed with trying to jump on his own. He can jump on the trampoline at day care, but jumping on the floor proved much harder as there is no help from the material. But he does not give up. He keeps trying to jump, and jump, and jump. And he is getting there! The ring hanging from the ceiling is something we used to practice his goal oriented gripping when he had just learned to sit. He re-discovered it recently and now loves to spin around holding on to it.
