a day that will live in infamy

Today is the anniversary of Pearl Harbor, “a day that will live in infamy.”

It lives in infamy for Dave and I for a completely different reason.

Last night Leo slept through the night for the very first time!!  He slept from 7:45pm to 5:15am – 9.5 hours!  GLORIOUS!

We are so proud of our little man!  And yes, hopeful it’ll keep repeating – for us, but especially for him.  Sleep is good for him!  If it becomes a consistent pattern, I’ll post about how we got him there (note: a lot of trial and error (lots of error) on our part, amazing advice from friends, tag-team effort, and patience).

How much sleep did you get last night?  I woke up at 4:15am and realized Leo was still sleeping.  I was so excited I couldn’t fall back asleep!

  1. I see you decided to celebrate by dressing him in Hawkeye colors. Good job! And yea for glorious sleep! I tried watching the video, but it says it’s private. Thanks for the teaser of getting excited to see cute Leo videos only to be denied by privacy settings.

  2. Yay for you!!! The first time Miles did it I worried myself for an hour wondering if he was alive but too afraid to open the door and wake him up. He doesn’t sleep through the night often so I’m excited to see if Leo keeps it up and what you did.

  3. CONGRATS! I know what a huge day this is. Miles did it a few times for us around 4 months and then actually started doing it at 10 months. It makes SUCH A HUGE difference in well being for all. I hope it sticks!

  4. Yea for your family! Plus, what an adorable video!

    I remember the first time this happened with Amelia, sometime between 3 and 4 months. Scott and I used to trade off the night feedings – he would take midnight and I would take 3 a.m. I remember waking up at 5 a.m. and FREAKING OUT that he had forgotten to wake me for the 3 a.m. feeding. I rushed downstairs to ask what had happened and was surprised to find the house blissfully quiet, save for some snoring. Scott woke up before Amelia did and I remember we both felt dumbfounded by the amazing feeling of being awake before the baby’s cries woke us up.

    She only awoke during the night a few more times and then she slept pretty consistently from 8 p.m. to at least 6 a.m. for just about as long as I can remember. I hope Leo’s sleeping success continues!
