Sleeping Baby

Well, who would have thought?!!!

Thomas slept through the night last night!!

Well, mostly.

He woke up at his regularly scheduled "feeding freebie" around 1am. But, I wasn't going to give in. Of course in order to "give in," I would have had to have been more conscious than I was. I was out like light last night.

Garren found his binki and gave it to him.


15 minutes later he is fussing again, but not too badly.

I close the door so I can be stronger by not hearing the crying too loudly. He must have stopped pretty quickly, because I was sound asleep in no time.

The next thing I know it is 4am. I have Garren open the door while he was up.

My good little boy stays asleep soundly until 6:45am!!

I fix him a bottle as a reward, and he snuggles in my arms and sleeps lightly until around 7:10am--just in time to get Gracie up and ready.

Please, oh, please don't let this be a fluke! Of course after 14 months, I am pretty sure I have earned an easy transition to "sleeping through the night."

We shall see if it sticks.

I am usually weepy when a phase in my children's lives are over. I think I would rather jump for joy on this one!

Before my kids started sleeping through the night (just a couple of years ago, you know - HA!), I often wondered if I would be able to sleep through the night or if I'd be up wondering what was wrong that they weren't up, when they finally DID sleep through the night. (Did you follow me on that one?) It didn't take me long to find out that I could really sleep like a log when given the opportunity! Enjoy!!!!! - Ruth

I'm already praying for a baby that sleeps through the night at an early age.
