Sleep, Glorious Sleep!

Oh, Sleep, glorious Sleep, how I've longed for you.  It's been some time since we've been together... and I've missed you every day.  But, now I've seen glimpses of your return.  Although sometimes they are fleeting, I still dream of the day that you return to me for good.  
I haven't wanted to write this post, for fear of the jinx.  You know, you say it out loud and then it goes away.  So I'll whisper it to you... Jonas has been sleeping through the night.  

It's been about two weeks now.  He's been eating his dinner and nursing around 8pm and falling asleep in my arms.  He is then transfered to his OWN crib, where he procedes to sleep till approximately 5 or 6am.  Every night, he's given me 8-10 hours in a row.  Please, someone shout out a "Hallelujah, Praise the Lord"... I'm not kidding... do it!

Remember when I said that if Jesus REALLY loved me, he'd let Jonas sleep?  Well, guess what?  HE LOVES ME, HE LOVES ME, HE LOVES ME.  (Not that I EVER doubted).

It has immediately changed my demeanor.  I am more optimistic and energetic.  I'm having a lot of fun with him during the day, and I'm having a lot of fun without him during the night... (ooo, that was spicy).

So once he wakes up at 5, Mau goes and gets him and brings him to our bed.  I nurse him while we're sleeping and eventually he falls back to sleep too.  We snuggle till Marco wakes up around 8:30 and then begin our day.  It's been working out wonderfully.

Now, I'm looking forward to that next step.  12 hours, baby!  We can do it!
