We I have been working on putting Caleb on a sleep schedule for the past few weeks. He has been doing really well, surprisingly enough. He's gotten to the point that pretty much, he will sleep six hours straight and need only one feeding through the night. He normally goes down for the night between 8:30 and 9:00, and then awakens around 3ish, and is up for good a little after 7. Not too bad for a 6-week-old, huh? :o) It certainly makes for a happier mama when I don't have to wake up every 3 hours on the dot!
So, yeah, I figure he's doing pretty well. I mean, I don't have any complaints with only having to wake up once... sure, it would be nice to sleep straight through the night, but that will come with time. That's what I've been telling myself, at least. I'm sure at some point, I'll believe it, LOL :P
Well, guess what our little man decided to do last night? I bet you think I'm going to tell you that he woke me up every hour or something. Well, he didn't. Instead, he slept for 9 hours. Yes, you read that right. N-I-N-E, nine, count-em, nine hours -- in! a! row!
I actually woke up on my own and thought, "Is he still alive?!" because there was no way that he was still sleeping. But, sure enough, there he was, sound asleep in his bassinet. I'm still in shock. *sigh* It was wonderful. I'm sure it won't happen again tonight, but a girl can dream....
Speaking of which, I guess it's about time I headed off to dreamland myself. Good night!
