It's a Miracle, A True Blue Spectacle...

OK...sorry for the Barry Manilow song lyrics title...it's seriously what gets stuck in my head when I think about the fact that my 14 month slept in his crib for ELEVEN HOURS last night without waking. Woo hoo!!!

I know in my absence I haven't been updating you on the situation that is my child's penchant for waking at 2:30am and REFUSING to go back to sleep unless he comes into our room. Before you jump all over me :) I TRIED. I've rocked the child for hours. I've slept on the floor next to his crib. I've held him and paced the floors...antyhing to get him back in his bed. No dice.

BUT! Alas, we may have turned a corner!Last night,he slept from 7:15pm to 6:30am. In his OWN BED. Which effectively means that Momma neither had a foot in her back nor a finger up her left nostril. Both of which can make for a less-than-restful night's slumber.

It's a miracle...11 hours in his own bed. Woo hoo. Let us pray this is a NEW phase we're in.

I'm feeling your excitement and, let me tell you, whatever it took before to get sleep is what I'd be doing, too. Hope the waking up in the middle of the night phase is over. I'm sure you'll adjust quickly!

I surely will be praying the prayers of a momma who understands. :) Sleep has been the one consistent issue with our little guy. Even at nearly 18 months he has his moments. I've just stopped assuming that every night will be a long one, and then I'm blissfully happy when it is. :)

It's a glorious thing!!

Good sleep can change the world. At least until lunch.
