8 Hours

I rolled over in bed at 7am.

Me: "Where's the baby?"

Dwayne: "What do you mean?"

Me: "Where is he?"

Dwayne: *strange look*

Me: "He didn't wake up last night!"

Dwayne went in to check on him. Sound asleep. This is the first time ever in his 8-month-life that he's slept through the night. I feel so good! So rested!

It is now 7:30. Still sleeping. All 3 of them. Hmmm...enjoying my coffee during the calm before the storm.

I remember that feeling first the shock and then the relief and then the blessed sigh.

Awesome! My last started sleeping through the night at 3 weeks old (not good for nursing though...)! My kids are a handful but at least they sleep good for me! Good for you though- I love it when they start sleeping through the night! =)

So exciting for you!! I hate that feeling, waking up in the middle of the night wondering why he hasn't woken up. At least you made it until morning :)

Oh wonderful! Yea for you!

Doesn't it make such a difference getting a full, uninterupted nights sleep? I am the type that totally needs my sleep..and it was so great once each of our children learned that trick.
