The other day I caught Emmett sleeping in the most adorably odd position ever – I had to snap a photo …

The Six-Hour Sleeping Phenomenon

March 6, 2009 7 comments

Are you ready for this? …


I know – can you believe it?  The little man was asleep from 12:30 a.m. last night until 6:30 a.m. this morning, and needless to say, it was glorious.  I felt like a brand new woman this morning.  Usually Emmett’s sleep stints last a total of two to three hours, and before last night, the longest period of time he’s been asleep was four hours (and even that was rare).  I’m assuming he looked something like this while he slept …

Now some of you may be thinking, “Six hours?  That’s what I get on a bad night.”  But I assure you, when you become a parent, you and I will be on the same page.  For now, I’m going to chalk those six hours of heaven to a fluke so I don’t get disappointed tonight when he reverts back to his two to three-hour sleeping pattern.  But hey, I’m totally going to keep my fingers crossed.  I’ll keep you posted.

James and I are also thrilled to report an extreme increase in smile fests, and we were lucky enough to catch some of those precious little smirks on video this afternoon.  Check it out (and go ahead, make fun of the high-pitched mommy/daddy voices all you want) …

Emmett in the Nursery

What a little weekend of milestones!  Emmett turned one month old yesterday (can you believe it?) and spent his first night in his very own bedroom (which I think was a lot tougher on mommy than it was on baby).

James and I pretty much spent the whole weekend planning and rearranging the furniture in our apartment with the goal of finally setting up the nursery (for the most part).  To make the transition from our bedroom to the nursery a little easier (again, probably just for me), we’ve left the crib in our room for the time being and set up the Pack ‘N Play in the nursery.  I figured this would make things a lot simpler if I decided I didn’t like how things were going after the first couple of nights and wanted Em back in our room again.

I’m happy to report that the night went pretty well (normal behavioral hiccups aside).  It may have taken me a little longer than usual to get to sleep due to worries about possible baby monitor malfunctions or kitty mishaps (thankfully, Oliver kept his distance), but in the end, it seemed to work out pretty well.  I like to think Emmett enjoyed his independence, too.

Maybe I’ll still give it a couple more nights before we move the crib into the nursery for good.  You know, just to be sure …
