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!)
