Sleepyhead

Guess who slept 8+ hours last night???

This girl did!
And she went 10 hours between feedings.  Whoa!
It should be added that it was a bit unconventional.  We were at a school event last night that really must have tuckered her out.  We got home around 8:00 and it was close to 8:30 by the time I got the boys into bed (Brad was at a meeting).  So it was sometime between then and 9pm that Ruby fell asleep.  In anticipation that she would be waking within the hour to eat again (she last had a bottle at 7:00), I laid her on the ottoman in the living room (instead of in her crib).  {I cautiously admit that she naps on her stomach.  Please don’t call the authorities.}  So she was on her tummy, asleep on the ottoman, and I waited for her to wake.  And waited and waited and waited and then decided at some point I might as well curl up and snooze a bit while I wait.  {Of note, the ottoman was pushed up against the couch and I had my hand resting on her so I could feel her if she moved.  Again, please do not call the authorities.  My mama alert system was in full force as I was awake at least every half hour checking to make sure she was still breathing.}
At 5am, she finally stirred.
I’ll order up more nights like these, please!
