9 hours one Monday Night

Again with the 9 hour sleeping... I could get used to this! :) Shepherd went to sleep around 9 last night (ate at 8:30) and woke up this morning at 6 am, ready to eat. I cannot tell you how glorious a feeling it is to sleep that much. I still woke up once after 5 hours to check on him, but went back to sleep until Forrest's alarm clock went off at 5:30 am. Then, hoping Shepherd hadn't heard it, I rolled over and tried to sleep some more. That didn't happen, as Shepherd woke up soon after that. But the good thing? He went back to sleep after I fed him, and slept until 8:30....then around 9:45 he went back to sleep to nap for another hour...

and he's awake now... so i'm gonna go play! YAY!!

How do you get him to do that?

Mine are two and I can't get them to sleep that long in a row!

Holy cow! Our babies were born on the same day (Miles is mine) and he's not doing that...but he sleeps with me and I wake up every time he moves around...he never really wakes up all the way and cries...so maybe he IS sleeping through the night and I'm not! Must experiment!

I remember that feeling...those first few nights when our Okapis slept through the night. The downside? It is easy to get used to the extra sleep and when they have a bad night, we found we were out of "practice." Upside? You'll be able to do SO much more with the extra sleep. Your brain works better, you remember more. I was amazed at how detrimental lack of sleep was to my brain functioning and how the extra sleep really made a difference.
