Sweet Sleep

So the little Pickle seemed pretty cranky yesterday. New Grammy to play with this week, and I think she was a little confused. Not to mention she's not a good napper anyway these days. So the little crankpot ate around 5:30 and then I put her in her PJs, and she was asleep in my arms by 6. I didn't think it would last, but at 6:30 I put her in her crib, zipped her into her blanket, and crept away. Around 8 I realized she really was out for the night, but I was worried she'd wake up too early and be hungry, not to mention I hadn't changed her diaper since 5. So I changed her and fed her a little, and she never even opened her eyes. Woke up on her own around 6:15 this morning, right on time! This was the first night she slept unswaddled (although I tucked her arms into her sleepsack rather than putting them through the armholes).

The girl loves her 12 hours of beauty sleep.

(Yeah, I know I am about to be proven wrong. Teething, bad karma for bragging, it'll get me I'm sure.)

Yea! And maybe she'll just keep doing that. M goes to bed at 6:15-6:30 and sleeps til at least 5:30 every morning. Sometimes 6:30.. Awesome, eh? :)

Your comment about bad karma makes me laugh. Claire is a sweet sleeper right now too (in bed by eight-ish, up around five or six) and I am dreading those little teeth keeping us both up.

Wow, 12 hours is something I dream about. That's amazing.

And happy belated birthday!

Enjoy the sleepy baby while it lasts, and here's hoping she never grows out of being a good sleeper. Also Happy Birthday!

What I wouldn't give to sleep 12 hours a night.

Good luck!
