3 Months of Henry

You're showing off a little leg there, my boy. You and all your pudgy sweet self!  Gimme some sugar.

I am so proud of Henry.  At 15 weeks, he is finally sleeping through the night consistently.  In fact, one morning I woke up and realized that was the first time I knew anything since going to sleep the night before.  It's been a long time since that's happened.  (Even during my pregnancy, I couldn't make it through the night without waking up to go to the little girl's room.)  I wish I could say he did it all by himself, but I had to give him a little nudge in the right direction and ignore his habit of waking up halfway through the night for a snack.  It took less than 20 minutes of whimpering at 4 am the first night of my mama protest.  I had failed to communicate my plans with Jason, and he kicked at me to let me know Henry was awake.  Light sleeper that I am, and grumpy when woken up, I may have snarled back. 

The next night, Henry whimpered once or twice.  The next night he groused for 10-15 minutes.  Every night since then has been one little cry or nothing at all, and it's lasted for a week.  Thank you, God!!!  Now if I could just make myself go to bed earlier...

Yay, go Henry! I also need to work on getting to bed earlier -- I think I actually got more sleep when Landis WAS waking up every night simply because I was more responsible about my own bedtime. :(

Oh - doesn't it feel amazing when they finally sleep through the night?! So glad for you!
