My little man did it!
At exactly four weeks old, he slept through the entire night last night.
Hunter's last feeding was at about 9:30pm and around 10:45pm he drifted off to sleep by my side in his bassinet next to our bed. He woke up and fussed a little about 20 minutes later due to a dirty diaper but after that, he fell right back to sleep and stayed that way until 6:00 am this morning!!
I slept so soundly myself (of course that could be due to the fact that I feel like crap...I think I have a cold and was physically spent) that I didn't wake up till Hunter did, so no frantic checks this time by me during the night to make sure the baby was still breathing!
I'm hopeful this will happen again soon (if not tonight) becuz he has been sleeping anywhere from 4.5-6.5 hours straight each night. So he was slowly building himself up for it.
And on the adult-front, Big D and I are doing well. I'm finally feeling very NON-zombie like and more like myself! More sleep has that affect on me, I guess. And while I do still have my frantic, meltdown moments here and there, they are coming few and far between. I'm less nervous and anxious and more relaxed as a Mommy. I'm LOVING it!
And here is a brief video clip of Hunter's first nap in his own crib! Please ignore the crazy camera angles at first as you would THINK Daryl was drunk while filming...but I swear he was not. And yes, you will see the flashes of Mom-arazzi...I was trying so hard to get a picture from the perfect angle. Heh. Yes, we're obviously new, excited parents!!
