So, I know this is totally boring, but I feel the need to talk about this. I figure if I'm gonna whine so much here in this space when the sleep is bad, I better fess up here when it's good.
I believe that last night and the night before, Swee'pea slept for five hours straight. Now, he has done that occasionally before, but the big news is that he did it when I was also sleeping. So for two nights in a row, I have slept for five hours straight for the first time in 13 months and two weeks. Wow.
Also, he has mostly been going to bed around 8, and for the last three nights has required minimal or no assistance from us until I'm ready to go to bed myself. Also very exciting.*
And now, I leave you with a small video of Swee'pea "singing" Row Row Row your Boat while "reading" his Row Row Row your Boat book. The beginning is all messed up for some reason, but it gets clearer.
*On the one hand, I know that posting this will result in immediate and dramatic changes to Swee'pea's sleep patterns, and I really don't want to jinx myself. On the other, just thinking about how nice it's been is enough to cause the jinx (which I've now done twice: last night before I went to bed, and this morning when I woke up). So I'm screwed no matter what and figured I may as well share it here.
