Shhhhh. . .


Okay, I'm going to say this really quietly and try not to jinx things. . .

Michael slept from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. the last two nights.

Truth be told, I'm a little freaked out by this. I was actually horrified that he'd been awake, hungry, in the middle of the night and I'd just not noticed. However, since he's still sleeping in our room that is fairly unlikely. He is not gaining weight at alarming rates and I'm a little nervous that he's not big enough to be sleeping through the night. Plus this new sleep schedule, combined with the fact that Matt gives him a bottle at 5 a.m. means I might be on the verge of getting decent sleep again, which is so delicious a thought I nearly cry considering it.

I'm tempted to call the doctor and ask whether this is okay. Then again, we'll be there in two weeks anyway and there's always a chance this is a fluke.

My mom is all, "Don't look a gift horse in the mouth you idiot!" (I might have added the idiot part.)

The truth is, if he were three months + old and hadn't been a preemie, I would have been trying to make this happen for at least a month already.

Just go with it! Make sure he's eating often during the day and having lots of wet diapers, and then enjoy your sleep!

Oh my goodness. I want to kiss those cheeks!

I agree... just go with it. For now. You know it will go backward too, so enjoy the few nights you get now and don't expect it to last.

Sleep while you can, girl!!! Maybe he's having a growth spurt or something. You'll be back to up all night all too soon when he starts getting teeth, anyway.

Oh, he's so CUTE. I could just squeeze him!!!!

Does anyone else think that Harper looks huge all of a sudden (perhaps it is the really small baby in her lap!)?!?!

And Kelsey, sleep away sweetie, you deserve it!! You're doing everything just right.

OMG yes please enjoy it! I know it's hard to turn off the worry but exhaustion will overtake you and then you'll be fine :-)

Such a big beautiful boy!
