Glorious night of peace and rest

two wonderful things happened last night.
1. Pedrito slept in his swing for a record hour and a half. He usually only sleeps outside of our arms for 10 - 20 minutes.
2. Pedro took the 1 a.m. shift then gave our little boy a bottle for the first part of my shift, then he stayed asleep until 6. So, for the first time since his birth, I got five hours of sleep. Thank you my love!

Hooray for sleep! Keep it up, little Pedrito!

Oh Lisa, I know how hard that is. I always hated the "Oh, it's okay, mine stopped that by 2 months. It'll pass quickly." And you're thinking TWO MONTHS?!! I CAN'T SURVIVE ANOTHER _______ (day, week, month, etc) LIKE THIS! But you do. And it does get better. And when it's all over you look back and think 'Oh, that passed quickly'. :) Just hang in there. After I had Darren (a catnapper as well) I thought I'd never be able to put life back together again. I remember looking at a friend with three kids and wondering how on earth she managed to put on makeup when I was lucky to manage a shower! lol But things really will settle down. :) Pedrito is such a handsome little guy! He's probably super smart, too, and just doesn't want to sleep because he's taking in everything. :P If you haven't read "Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child" it's a good one to help you make the best of the situation. Good luck and here's to some better nights and naps ahead for the both of you! ;)
