Since mid-December we have been dealing with the lovely sleep regression that hits some 4 month olds. It's been fun (insert sarcasm here). I forgot how much the exhaustion sucks even though he was a newborn just 4 short months ago.
Well, it appears that we might be coming out of that fog. Our baby who would not nap for more than 40 minutes at a time took a 2 hour 45 minute nap on Saturday and two 90 minute naps on Sunday. And then last night we got this:
Yep - 10+ hours of straight sleep. Woohoo!!!!
Now I know that could have been a fluke and I am by no means expecting this to happen every night, but we also got 8 hours on Sunday night so I'm hoping that means that we are heading in the direction of more good nights than bad ones. I'm well aware of the fact that me just talking about this means that he will be up every couple hours tonight.
Even if that does happen we'll just have to roll with it and be content with the knowledge that he is capable of sleeping well and that eventually nights like last night will (hopefully) be the norm. If not I'll just enjoy seeing this sight after he's filled his belly and and drifted off to dreamland:
I love that sweet little chubby baby (even if he doesn't sleep).
