Never before...

...have I had a 2 1/2 week old baby sleep for nearly 7 hours!! Last night I put Charlotte down at around 10:30 and she didn't wake up until 5:10!!! And her timing couldn't have been better because today was the first day for us to get back to doing our normal amount of school work again and I was planning to get up around 5. The break was nice, but last week as we did about half of our subjects I found it to be a huge relief to get back into it! I know some people think I'm crazy, but I just really enjoy our routine and the kids THRIVE on having a purpose each day.

Back to Charlotte- last week I moved her downstairs. So now when she's truly hungry and cries I hear her and I get up and feed her, but I'm no longer hearing every little sound. She has gradually woken up later and later for her middle of the night feeding. First it was around 1, then 2 ish, then 3:30 and now 5! I hardly dare to think this is more than a fluke because the other kids were between 5-7 weeks when they started sleeping through the night. I guess I'll know after the next couple of days!
