The last few weeks have been rough for sleep around our house. Niko has not wanted to go to sleep, despite clearly being so tired - so we've been dealing with a crying baby on and off for several hours before a final bedtime of something like 11:30. And then a grown-up wake-up time of 6 or so in the morning - tired parents. Tired baby. Crabby baby (or at least less chipper than usual).

So yesterday we decided to try a much earlier bedtime, because maybe he's just getting so overtired that it's hard for him to fall asleep. We started the bath and bedtime ritual around 6:15 PM. Amazingly, he fell asleep around 6:50. He woke up a couple of times but we just changed his diaper quickly or nursed him calmly and then urged him to go back to sleep, and he did. He slept through from 9:30 PM to 6:15 AM.

YAY!

So: I am very grateful for sleep. I slept from 10 PM to 6 AM. It was grand.

Here's hoping I can pull off the same thing tonight!
