As I have mentioned several times before, Ian's sleeping schedule as of late has been terrible. I had no idea how lucky we were his first few months, as he usually only got up once or twice during the night. The 4 month mark hit, and he started waking up every 2 hours or so all night.
Anyway, the past 4 nights haven't been all that bad. Asleep by 8-9pm, then sleeping until 3-4 am. He wakes up really hungry at that point and I get him out of the crib and we lay on the couch for the rest of the night. If I try to put him back in the crib after feeding him, he immediately starts crying. I honestly don't feel like fighting with him on it. As long as I get my pillows situated right I can usually go back to sleep, and he's awfully warm and cuddly. He won't be this little for long, right?
I'm still trying to wrap my head around what happened last night. We started our bed time routine at 7 as usual: Dinner of some solid food, change into pjs, read a book, in the crib. He was out by 8pm. Didn't hear a peep from him for the rest of the time we were still up (it's not unusual for us to have to go in and sing to him 3-4 more times before we go to bed around 10 or so).
He slept until 6:15 am.
That. my folks, is over 10 hours of uninterrupted sleep. 10 hours.
Ssshhh, don't tell him. If he knows he did it he might never do it again.
