Sleepy Heads

We have had the best day in our house because Bennett slept through the night for the very first time last night!!! I put him to bed at 8:00, gave him a dreamfeed at 11:00, then he didn't wake up this morning until a few minutes before 7:00. Woo Hoo! Go Bennett!!
Bennett's middle of the night feedings have been stretching out longer and longer just in the last week. He was waking up really consistently at 2:00 then we've slowly gone to 2:30, 3:00, and 3:30. Bennett took a really good dreamfeed last night (he usually just halfway eats) so I had a feeling we would get to 4:00 but I never dreamed he would go all night! I woke up on my own at about 6:15 this morning and my first thought was "oh my gosh it's daylight!" Then I was like "wait, did I feed Bennett last night?....No! No I didn't. Oh my gosh he did it! He did it!" I just sat and starred at the monitor with a smile on my face and it was all I could do to not shake Scott awake to tell him the good news!
I'm aware that this probably isn't going to be the consistent new thing from here on out. Bennett will most likely wake up tonight and maybe even tomorrow night. But from my experience, I also know that he's proven that he can sleep through the night now. I have a feeling that in a few weeks he will start doing it consistently and that makes me so very excited!! If you want your baby to sleep through the night put them on a schedule. It's as easy and simple as that. Babywise is everything to me!!! I want to find the people who wrote the book and kiss them.
Not only did Bennett grace us (well, me) with good sleep last night, so did his older brother! Campbell goes through phases of sleeping in and he's in one right now. He typically wakes up at 7:15 every morning but for over a week now he's been sleeping in until 8:00-8:45 every day. It's so awesome! I wish he had chosen to do this the very first few weeks of Bennett's life but we'll gladly take it now and cross our fingers that he keeps it up for another week or so! :)
Needless to say, our weekend is off to a good start! Let's hope is stays awesome!
