The most amazing thing happened last night!

Philip went to bed last night around 7:30. He ate dinner, played, and went to sleep with his bottle as per usual. Then he was out and in bed without a problem. I went to bed around 10:30. Phil got home from work around 2:30 and I woke up when he came to bed. I figured Philip would be up for his usual 4 am feeding so I better get back to sleep soon.

The next thing I know, my alarm is going off and the sun is shining. What just happened? Something seems off. And then it dawned on me: Philip hadn't woken up for his nighttime feeding. He slept through it! And in turn, he full blown slept through the night for the first time ever! This is huge! I haven't slept through the night myself since the 2nd trimester of my pregnancy. Wow! I feel like I've been reacquainted with an old friend-- uninterrupted SLEEP!

Granted, I don't dare expect him to do the same tonight but I'm so relieved to know that he can go a whole night without needing to eat again. It gives me hope that nighttime feedings really will be a thing of the past some day in the near future!
