Umm I know you a referring to me so here's my answers LOL

What time does your LO go to bed? (usually) Usually it's between 9:30 and 10:00 most nights
Do they stay up occasionally? I'd say more than occasionally. Weekends I bend the rules (Daddy's rules) when he's gone to the hunt club Wink
what time do they wake up? Most mornings she is up by 9:00 or a little before
do they nap? if so how long? No naps... unfortunately
in total how many hrs on average to they get (naps/and night)? I'd say between 10 and 10 1/2 hours of sleep. You know your nickname for Ava Douglas "Party Girl" LOL

when do you go to bed? and wakeup? I'm a night owl so I usually don't go to bed before midnight or after and I wake up when Ava gets up because I have to LOL

I'm going to college in January full time so our sleeping schedule will change dramatically. I'm enjoying sleeping in while I can.

Reading this I didn't realize how easy we have it with Deacon actually falling asleep. Once he is in bed it takes less than 5 minutes for him to be asleep. Maybe that's just because he needs more sleep in general. LOL

What time does your LO go to bed? (usually) b/w 8-8:30
Do they stay up occasionally? yes, but very rarely. I am stickler for routine.
what time do they wake up? b/w 7-8 am
do they nap? if so how long? not every day, when he does 2 hours average
in total how many hrs on average to they get (naps/and night)? 11-14 hrs.

when do you go to bed? and wakeup? I get up with Matthew b/w 7-8 and go to bed midnight, 1 am. At night is my only time to study. I take breaks and come here or play FB b/w studying chapters. If I try to read everything all at once, it won't stick. I read it in chunks, take a break, go back and it sticks better. So all that takes me longer....
