So we've been very schedule-free in this household as of yet. Theo eats when he wants, which is pretty regular give or take an hour here or there, sleeps when he wants, which is generally after eating and some playing, and so on. I've heard many people preach the gospel of having a schedule, but it's working for us so far, so meh, we'll do it if we need to.

Theo has started falling asleep at or around the same time every evening, which is 10:30, usually getting up between 7 and 9am. Now that he's doing this we're working toward getting him to actually fall asleep in his crib instead of just carrying him there once he's asleep. The last couple of nights we've had success with putting him there mostly asleep. Tonight he was sleeping in the living room but in the crib his eyes were wide open and he was wiggling a little. We sang the good-night song and closed the door, and although he was fully awake going down, he hasn't made a peep! So hopefully soon we'll be able to just pop him in the crib wide awake and he'll fall asleep on his own.
