Good news on the sleep front (but shhhhhh)

I'm about to jinx myself, but with all the past posts on Operation Nighttime, I should update the masses...

Babycakes slept through the night on Monday. All the way, like 8 p.m. until 5 a.m.

And then he did it again Tuesday.

And Wednesday.

I really, really want to do a happy dance. This has been a long time coming. Almost 10 months ... but I'm still cautious to call it a trend. In fact, I'm getting nervous even writing this.

Plus, our older son was up each of those nights, so for us, it wasn't a try "sleep through the night" experience. In fact, the big guy is learning to play us against each other. Last night, he came to my side of the bed.

"Mom, I need to cuddle."

"Wait 'till the beeps," I told him. He knows he can't get in our bed until the alarm clock goes off, and it was all of 11:30 at night.

"OK," he says.

I hear his little feet patter around to the other side of the bed.

"Daddy, I need to cuddle."

Daddy lifts up the blanket and gives him a big hug. (He denies any recollection of this.)
