Restful Night

Last night Noah slept through the night. Well, he slept from 10:00 until 5:00. For those of you who are not quick with the math, that is 7 hours without eating!! Which means that I actually slept for 7 consecutive hours, the longest I have slept in 6 months!! This is reason to celebrate in our house.
The only other time that he has done anything even similar to this was on day 4... he slept from 12:00 am to 5:00 am and we were convinced that our baby was going to sleep through the night every night. Boy were we wrong!
It hasn't been THAT bad though.. when he does wake up he normally just nurses for a few minutes and goes right back to bed. The only annoying thing is that recently he has started doing this 3 or 4 times a night when previously he was only waking once or twice. Oh, it is also annoying when people give you that look of shock when you say your 6 month old does not sleep through the night. The reality is that I will probably miss those night feedings when they completely stop because that will be one more sign that Noah is growing up.
But for now, we are happy with the one night of 7 hours of sleep. Maybe it will happen again tonight, maybe it won't. Regardless, we still have the best baby in the world :)

I think that he is right on track. Breast fed babies take longer to sleep through the night, Nina didn't do it until 7 months! Congratulations on getting some much deserved rest:) He is beautiful.
