Surprise Me, God Update

I just had the best surprise of all!  It's the miracle we've been praying for!  It's the end-all, be-all, gotta-have-it, elusise FULL NIGHT OF SLEEP!

I'm not kidding you.  I know, I've said the boys are sleeping through the night before.  But I was stretching it; it just FELT like they were sleeping through the night because I wasn't nursing them.  Last time I told you I was sleeping through the night we were getting up 3-5 times a night to replace a lost binky. 

So I thought that was pretty good.  Then last wek we had a, hm, how do I say this without swearing?  Really POOPY week of sleep.  It was insane: binkies at 1 am, 1:30am, 2am, that "I'm starving you idiot!  Feed me!" cry at 2:15 am, then the other baby started his binky campaign at 4am.  Rocking, burping, feeding...ugh, we just finished this part of newborn-hood!

Then last night, we all slept in our own beds at our own house. 

 For the first night in over a year, I slept for 8 hours STRAIGHT.  The boys are still sleeping, clocking in at 11.5 hours as I write.

Peace be still.


Amen and amen.

What a glorious, fabulous, miraculous surprise.  Thank you, God!

(Yes, I checked on them and they are still breathing!)
