Turning A Corner

Something crazy happened in this house last night. Campbell slept from 9:00-1:30 then from 3:00-8:00. Say whaaat?!! I was so excited when I woke up and it's all I've thought about all day! I have a feeling (knock on wood) that we're going to start getting more sleep in the Johnson house from now on. I think we've turned a corner in the sleep world. For the last week Campbell has been sleeping for longer stretches. He used to only sleep for 2 hours but now he never sleeps less than 3. It's amazing how much of a difference one hour can make.
I think one reason we're getting more sleep around here is because, as of 1 week ago, we've officially moved Campbell into his room. He's still sleeping in his rock-n-play but instead of it being parked next to my side of the bed it's now upstairs. When he was sleeping in our room, once he started making his little hungry, grunting noises I would pick him up and nurse him. A couple of nights ago, I heard him grunting through the monitor so I started to get up but then he stopped. I watched the monitor for a few minutes then he fell back to sleep for another hour. I almost wonder if I would have been getting more sleep a long time ago if I had moved him up there sooner. Let's not think about that though....
We don't really hear his grunting noises anymore and I only go upstairs when he starts to cry. Scott and I both agree it's made a world of difference in our sleep! I thought that I would hate climbing up the stairs all night but it doesn't bother me at all. In fact, I like it better. I love being able to rock him to sleep now and I feel like he goes to sleep faster. I honestly think he really likes being in his room too! We have black out curtains in there so it's nice and dark and I'm pretty sure he knows the room is all for him! Yay for better sleep for all 5 of us living under this roof!
