Pulling All Nighters

We are now officially sleeping through the night. I'm calling it. Although Amber did cry a few times last night and Tyler still comes into our bed sometime in the middle of the night, we are, for the most part, getting a full nights sleep. It really feels good. I'm even able to stay up a little after everyone goes to bed to get a few things done. I'm feeling a little more motivated at night and I'm feeling like I need to start washing my hair more often than just 3-4 times a week. Wow.

Now that Amber is sleeping well at night, we need to work on Tyler so that he sleeps all night in his own bed. He's not feeling really well right now, so I have a hard time turning him away, but when he starts feeling well, we're going to have to take him back to his room when he comes in.

Cory is still our great sleeper. I know he doesn't always go to sleep right away, but he lays quietly in his bed. I hope that we can use him as an example for Tyler. Not sure how that will work, I don't want to compare them, but maybe a way to motivate him to sleep all night. We'll see.

Oh, that's wonderful! Sleep is never overrated. And having an hour or so to yourself after the kids are in bed? Priceless.

Oh god, really? What does that feel like? We're reeling from exhaustion over here: Munchkin got up three times between 9 and 1:30 last night, and this is not unusual. Wah!

But I'm happy for you! Hooray!

Yay! I think sleeping through the night is pretty much tantamount to a national holiday. I remember so vividly the first night I got a solid 7 hours of sleep after having a baby. I felt like superwoman or God...Yay! :)
