Seven...that's the number of hours my child slept last night...yep he slept through the night for the very first time from 10pm-5am!! And that doesn't count the hour before we officially put him to bed that he was basically sleeping through his last feeding and diaper change.
While I'm incredibly happy that Hunter proved it is possible for him to sleep longer than 4 hours at a time unfortunately I feel even less rested than usual. Both Kristian and I woke up around 2:30am, I think from habit since that's Hunters typical wake up call and both of us spent the rest of the night tossing and turning. I did not sleep again AT ALL. Ugh. So I couldn't even enjoy the 7 blissful hours of potential sleep. FML.
On top of that we both feel like we're coming down with a cold. Sore throat, congested head, stuffy nose etc. My child has been in daycare for one week and already we've been infected with the sickies. So far Hunter seems to be okay. He seemed a little congested last night which we noticed mainly when he would cry but he doesn't have a fever and was eating and pooping like normal. I'm keeping my fingers crossed he doesn't catch whatever we seem to have caught. And I'm praying that his seven hour stretch of sleep wasn't just a fluke but rather the beginning of some much needed sleep relief for us.
