Ok, let’s be real. Before babies, sleeping through the night was sleeping from whatever time you decided to go to bed, until you felt like waking up the next morning. Like, 8-12 hours of glorious, uninterrupted sleep. I used to get irritated if I had to get up to pee in the middle of the night. After babies, sleeping through the night is any 5+ hour stretch of sleep. Your baby slept from 730pm-midnight? It counts. Imagine my disdain when I realized that was the best I could hope for after Mac was born…BUT!!!! After 9 months of less than 5 hours a night TOTAL, that felt pretty darn good.
Oh, and yeah, Mac slept through the night last night! Woohoo!!! 😀 he also took his first step right before bedtime, so of course I cried. He’ll be nine months old in 3 days…he’s still a baby! And he’s almost walking! Kids grow up way too fast. We’ll just have to see what new milestones are met today!
