...all through the night was the alternative title of the blog post, because last night was WONDERFUL. The Wife put the boy in his crib around 7:30 / 8:00, post-bath & story & songs. He slept - HARD - until around 2AM. I call this hard sleep because, as I've documented, he has a tendency to swivel around the crib as he sleeps. If his head starts at, say, 9 o'clock and his feet pointing towards 3, it's not strange to see his head at 12, 2, 4 or whatever, with his feet pointing in any which direction, including up. Last night, he slept in exactly the same position as he was placed, up to being picked up by Daddy for his feeding.
The 2 o'clock feeding went quickly (at least to me, who fell asleep immediately upon passing the football to Mommy), and he went back to sleep immediately afterwards. Then, The Wife woke him up at around 6:15 for the morning feeding.
Oh frabgerous day, kaloo kaley! I feel wonderful this morning. Still tired - after going to see a pre-screening of Battlestar Galactica: Razor, I stayed up to watch Heroes and to read the next chapter in my math textbook, so I didn't get to sleep until midnight-ish - but hope is on the horizon. Here's to getting a steady five / six hours of sleep on a reasonably regular basis!
(Isn't it amazing how quickly our priorities re-set... BC, I'd be happy with knowing that I'd get ten hours of sleep on the weekend. AD, I'm ecstatic at the thought of six hours uninterrupted.)
