Seven

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.

Yay for Hunter (crappy that you could really enjoy the extra rest though!)

Hope you all stay healthy!

I hope he doesn't get the sickies! But I'm sorry you did. :( awesome on the sleep! Go hunter!

Aw, that totally happens. I remember we both were panicked because Laura didn't wake up at her 4 hr interval (except the first 2 weeks, she actually would sleep for 4 hours at a time and went through the night right away). Your body will adjust. Nursing allegedly keeps the immune system working hard. That doesn't help you though. We're going through the first few years of preschool and we're constantly getting sick while Laura has gotten sick once.

Hope you manage to avoid the germs and stay well!

Here's hoping he keeps it up and that you're able to get more rest, too! That sucks about your feeling sick, though, and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that Hunter doesn't also come down with it.

This girl = Jealous!! I can't wait for Max to sleep that long! I can't complain he sleeps 3-4 hrs a night so its not too bad.

Way to go big man! Now we just need to get Mama on board with sleeping when you sleep those 7...good luck with that.

I am sorry you've all started coming down will something, hopefully you can rest (I know, I know), chug some orange juice and get better before it gets worse.
