Weight Loss Progress and new scheduling

As of yesterday I've lost 15 pounds!

I'm trying to implement a new schedule while I can: I would like to wake up at 5 AM every day -- approximately an hour before Aidan wakes up -- so that I can get some reading and/or studying done in peace. Well, I didn't get to bed last night til rather late, and I ended up sleeping until 5:45, during which Aidan also woke up, so no alone time. But in the future, that's what I want to do. I'm more of a morning person than Golf and morning time for me has always been more serene and peaceful.

Then what I'd like to do regularly is go on my powerwalks at about 8 AM. Golf's awake by then and takes Aidan to go down for his morning nap and nobody can put that baby to sleep like he can. So I'm hitting the ground hard -- I tend to walk faster when I have no stroller to push. And Aidan's been getting bored on our walks lately. Plus I get more energy the rest of the day.

So far this small shift in schedule should benefit me and Aidan and get more things done.

Why do you need someone 'to put him to sleep'?

Just put him down and let him put himsef to sleep.
