Here it is, the moment I had been waiting for for almost 5 mos now. Lucas has never slept that long once since birth. I always whine and complain how terrible a sleeper he is and how I never get any rest. So last night Lucas falls asleep with his 7:30 bottle. I put him in bed by 8, and do some stuff around the house, waiting for him to get up. I go to bed at 9:30, and toss and turn since I am used to him sleeping with me and never sleeping longer than 2-3 hours and waking from fitful sleep. As I drift in and out, each time I open my eyes, I look at the clock and panic. Surely something must be wrong, my son never sleeps like this. He must be not breathing or ill. So I run downstairs to check. He is sound asleep and breathing! This goes on a few times. At 1:30 he finally wakes to eat. I take him to bed and feed him and he sleeps til 5am. So, he finally gives me what I have been begging for, and wishing for, and I can't sleep because I am sure something is wrong! I am such an idiot! It probably won't happen again for another 5 mos, and I missed out on the restful night he tried giving me!LOL! Just wanted to share my funny little story.

That is awesome, Rachael! It sounds like there is a new trend forming. If that is the case, then I think you will be getting back into the sleeping swing of things yourself in no time. :)

I'm hoping so. But I never hold my breath with my little guy! He loves to mess with me. Is Ben sleeping any better Christy?

Hi Rachael, This is too weird...I was laying in bed at 2am this morning waiting to post almost the same exact post you posted. I felt like I was reading what I was going to post this morning. My son Jeremy went to sleep at 8pm as well and woke up at 1am, of course I too couldn't go to sleep myself because I was in shock! I fed him at 1am and put him back to sleep but I still couldn't go to sleep, still in shock! He wakes up again when DH left for work at 445am and eats again, and goes back to sleep until 8am. This is great because he used to wake up every 2 hours at night to eat and he just went to his 2month appt yesterday! I make jokes saying that one of his vaccinations may have been the "sleep thru the night" vaccine.. I hope I'm not jinxing myself.. Congratulations to us both!

Thats great maryann! I'm hoping for an encore, but Lucas likes to mix it up and keep me guessing. I always thought if it happenend I'd be so out from lack of sleep I wouldn't know he'd slept that much til he woke me up. I'm still exhausted today! Thats what I getLOL! Hope your little one keeps it up as well.

Great for you Rachael and Maryann! It's funny, because we all worry so much about SIDS, and even though it occurs in children under a year, I STILL check on my 3 1/2 & 2 yr old in the middle of the night to make sure they're still breathing. :o)

Yay, Lucas! What a nice little man, trying to let his Mommy get some sleep! Sorry it didn't work out as planned!

 

Rachael mommy2lucas - January 14

Thats okay, that was my fault, he did good! Chelsey I got the pics, did you get my email reply?

 

Chelsey - January 14

Yuppers! I did! I'm guessing the other emails ended up as spam, or are somewhere in another inbox.... hope whoever has them isn't a creepy weirdo! Gabe's hair is wild, isn't it?!!!!

It is soo cute! Does it just fly around? I love it. Hailey looks just like a mischievous angel! Like an angel that would talk all about the midgets! She is a doll!

I can't tame his hair down! Its bald at the back, and Dh says it looks like a comb-over, with a touch of Alfalfa (Little Rascals)! Poor kid. Hailey is so blunt and honest... but she is an angel!

 

Rachael mommy2lucas - January 14

I think his hair is great. Lucas is finally growing some! I can't wait til he can embara__s me at the stores too, if he has my big mouth, I am in big trouble!

 

Chelsey - January 14

Ha ha, I cant wait for you to experience embarra__sment in the stores either! Does that sound bad?!! I really should be taping Hailey's conversations, they crack me right up! However, i cant take responsibility for her mouth, she gets it from Dh! Get the 2 of them together, and all h*ll breaks loose!

 

Rachael mommy2lucas - January 14

LOL! I don't think its bad to wish it on me! I look forward to it. Its like a rite of pa__sage into parenthood! Unfortunately, I only have myself to blame for his mouth!

 

Chelsey - January 14

LOl! You're right, it is a right of pa__sage to parenting! You dont have a truck driver's tonque, do you?!!

 

Rachael mommy2lucas - January 14

Unfortunately, I do if someone really ticks me off. Especially while driving, I don't even think before terrible things come out of my mouth. No wonder Lucas hates the car!
