Joshua slept like a champ last night. (This isn’t exactly what makes me love being a mom…) We put him in the bed at 11:00 and he didn’t start making any noises until 4:00am. He didn’t really wake up for another hour. So, I slept from 11:00 to 5:00. That is six hours of sleep and another night of sleeping through the night. My little man is learning.
Sometimes when Joshua is waking up from a nap, he is a super-grump. He wakes up crying and fussing, like he can’t decide if he wants to be awake or asleep and is frustrated about it.
This morning, I scooped him up out of the bassinet and took him into the nursery to change his diaper. He rubbed/smacked himself in the face with his hands a little bit and then opened his eyes up.
When he saw me, he smiled.
He smiled at me just because he saw me and not because I was tickling him or making silly noises or singing silly songs. He just opened his eyes, saw me, and smiled. What a way to start the day!
That, my friends, makes the sleepless nights worth it.
