Red Letter Day

Last night, for the first time, Caleb slept through the night!  Cue marching band, balloons, and the van full of celebratory confetti!

He went to bed at 7:30 pm and slept solidly until 6:30 am.  Sweet and sour chicken, it was awesome!

At 5 am, I was awakened by my full boobs...I guess you could say that my knockers were a' knockin!  Ha!  (Jerry is SO gonna give me a condescending look and say, "You know that you're the only one who thinks you're funny, right?" for that joke.)

So, I got up to pump and figured: Hey, I'm up, may as well go run.  So, run I did: A full, legitimate 3 miler!  Complete with the requisite pre-dawn spiderwebs and everything.  It felt pretty dang good.

I'm crossing my fingers that last night's 11 hour snooze-fest will repeat itself tonight and I can repeat this morning's success tomorrow morning.  So far, so good: He was down again at 7:30 tonight, so...fingers crossed!

Yay! Hope it becomes the new normal for you.

Woot! Go mama! I am never awake enough to go for a pre-dawn run, even though Nora does STTN these days. Here's hoping this is the new normal!

Ooh I hate those pre-dawn spider webs.

So jealous - mine is 6 months old and the best he has done so far is only up twice in the night to eat. Otherwise he's usually up every 1-2 hours. I fear he will be like my first who didn't sleep all night until 15 months. Until then, I will live vicariously through you!

YEAH!!! that is awesome! I wonder if my little one would sleep that long, i do a dream feed at 10:30 and change him but i bet he would go through the night if I had an overnight diaper on him so that he wouldn't wake up wet. I plan on trying it in a few days actually.
Once the sleeping takes shape so does your running routine, how exciting!

Wow!! That is fantastic. I still can't get Eva to sleep longer than from about 8pm to 5am. Not that I am complaining but... :)
