Well, who would have thought?!!!
Thomas slept through the night last night!!
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!
