The Six-Hour Sleeping Phenomenon

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) ...
