My Little Sleepyhead

Last night Jameson slept from 7:45 until 6:15 this morning, and instead of being thrilled I was beyond stressed! At 4am when I realized he hadn't woken up yet, I was unable to go back to sleep. Finally, at 4:30 I went into his room to make sure he was still breathing and that the baby monitor hadn't broken or something to that effect. He was still breathing (phew!) and sleeping very peacefully. Although, I am not sure how he was sleeping through the crazy thunderstorm we had, maybe it was reminiscent of Oregon with the rain pattering on the roof. I figured he would wake up when he was hungry/wet. Sure enough he woke up at 6:15 happy and talking to me. Maybe this is the beginning of him sleeping through the night. We will keep our fingers crossed!

The other night, Jameson fell asleep in Kevin's arms for the first time. Jameo had been fussing and really fighting sleep as I was walking around trying to get him to close his eyes. Kevin asked to hold him and see what he could do. Within minutes Jameson's eyes were heavy and he was looking up at his dad with the sweetest sleepiest look on his face. He was really fighting closing his eyes, so I taught Kevin how to stroke his forehead and nose with his index finger and sure enough his eyelids finally drooped closed. Kevin looked up at me and said, "I think I just became a daddy." That made me get all teary-eyed, and of course I had to take a picture to commemorate the special moment.
