'Through The Night'

Should we give out a little woo hoo that it's almost the weekend? I'm very much looking forward to mine! My people and I are going down to Little Rock to visit my parents. I'm so excited about going but really hoping it doesn't mess up Campbell's new routine. It shouldn't since I am so meticulous about Campbell's schedule and I know I won't be getting off of it. I'm just worried that him being in a new place/environment will throw him off. Please, little peanut, don't let it throw you off! I really don't want to go back to our old ways.
I plan on doing a more detailed Baby Wise post for you guys to let you know how everything is going but I want to give it a few more weeks to make sure we're solid. So far though it has just been amazing. The night before last Campbell slept for 7 hours--10:30-5:30!! It's the longest he's ever slept. However, last night he woke up twice. Ever since we've started Baby Wise he usually just wakes up once. Waking up twice is considered a bad night now. Baby sleep patterns are just so unpredictable. You can do the exact same thing day after day and one night he may sleep 7 hours and the next he may only go for 4. I put Campbell to bed around 10:30 and he usually wakes up between 3:00-5:00. We're up for 30 minutes, I lay him back down, then Scott and I have to wake Campbell up at 7:30 to get our day started. It's a huge improvement from where we used to be. I can completely function and feel like a normal person, who gets good sleep, like this. Although I'm very much looking forward to him sleeping through the night. I've found that the term "sleeping through the night" has a different definition for every parent. Some consider 11:30-5:00 sleeping through the night and others 7:00-7:00 is sleeping through the night. For me, sleeping through the night would be 10:00-7:00 or 10:30-7:30. Same bedtime as me. I'm hoping that Campbell can get there by the time he's 5 months old. That's the goal. Anything better than that would be a very exciting bonus. The long term goal is 7:00-7:00. That seems so unimaginable to me right now though! One day....hopefully! Some babies never can seem to get there until they're toddlers. Hopefully Campbell will be capable of doing it before the year is up.
In other news, I got my hair cut today. We took off quite a bit and it feels pretty good. There's nothing like a fresh new haircut is there? Until tomorrow....
