chubby chase

that little chubby baby face
is the face of a man
that slept 8 straight hours last night.
such a gem:)
i,
on the other hand,
woke up after 7 hours
{actually more like after 4 hours b/c i stayed up watching american idol with sean}
{GO PHIL!!!}
bursting
at the seems.
i made sure he was breathing.
but for the first time out of all three babies
i knew he was just sleeping through the night,
and not worried he was dead.
so i got up,
banged around,
flushed the toilet,
twice.
woke up sean,
"can you believe he's sleeping this long?!?"
{yes, i really woke him up to tell him that}
went downstairs for a banana,
ate the banana.
drank half a liter of water.
parched.
went back to his little bassinet,
and told him what a fabulous sleeper he was,
and still,
nothing.
asleep.
fantastic,
amazing,
asleep!
an hour later
he made a small grunt,
and i leaped out of bed to feed him immediately.
win/win.
bless him.
imagine if i had gone to sleep at the same time as him.
i might have been too rested to fall back asleep.
imagine that!
