Something amazing happened last night

Monday, November 7, 2011
Something amazing happened last night, something unexpected, I was so excited I had to share. When I woke up I could hardly believe it. It was in fact morning, and I hadn't been up through the night. Wait, what? The first time in 3 months that I haven't stumbled down the hall to find a very hungry little baby waiting not so patiently for me to get my act together.

He had some trouble falling asleep last night, and we didn't get him to drift off into noddy land until 8pm (his bedtime is 6.30pm). For the last week he has been a bit unusual in his night waking and waking twice instead of his usual once. I thought it was maybe a growth spurt, or teething, or just some type of sleep regression, but I wasn't impressed! Twice a night is so hard when you have gotten used to just one night waking.  Anyway, the little mite didn't wake until 7.30am, I was up well before that wondering what was going on, and feeling rather full if you catch my drift.

I was astonished, it seems rather early for a 12 week old to sleep 12 hours straight, but it happened, and I am hoping that it may happen again. If I figure out what I did to make it happen, I will share the secret, but I really have no clue right now, but I will enjoy it.

Here he is this morning, looking rather pleased with himself, and so he should!!

  1. Yea!! This is about the time for him to get a schedule and routine to follow so if you know what you did keep it up :) Granted there will always be times it won't work (teeth, growth spurt, sickness) but he should start to figure it out now. Isabella has slept from ~7pm-7am since about that time.

  2. I still remember the first night my oldest slept through the night and he is in his 20s now! I was the same way .... walking around and peeking in to see what was going on. There he was just sleeping.

    He is such a handsome boy. I'm very proud of him too :)

  3. woohoo! congrats :) well done little guy!

  4. I am sooooooooo jealous! :) My son is 9 months old and he has only slept though the night once. One measly night, and I didn't get to savor it because I kept waking up every few hours wondering why he hadn't! Doh!

    You're a lucky lady, Karen, I hope your little one keeps this up for a while.

  5. Don't be too jealous, he only did it the once, now he is waking twice a night...bummer.
