ask me how long i slept last night.

go ahead. ask.

come on! ready?

EIGHT HOURS. in a row!

yep, eight hours in a row.

i fed ellie at 10:30, and we were finished at 11. i gave her to landon immediately, and went to bed. i was falling asleep while she nursed. she fell asleep in his arms at midnight, he put her in her bed at 12:30 and i didn't hear from her until 7 a.m.

isn't that incredible?

i woke up about 6:50, and thought, "i haven't seen ellie all night.." i snuck to her room - the overpowering fear that she may not be breathing when i look in on her has dulled a bit, but it has not disappeared. i just stuck my ear up to the crack in the door, and hear her little sleeping coos and wimpers. ten minutes later she started to fuss.

she slept through the night! two months and three days...she slept through the night.

but here's the question: will she do it again tonight?

oh, please, oh, please, oh, please.
