On Wednesday night, a miracle happened. The babies went to sleep around 8:30 after eating. Jason and I went to sleep around 9 (going to sleep at 9 pm is not unusual for us these days - sometimes we even go to bed before that). Miles got a little bit fussy, so I put him in the crook of my arm to sleep.
We didn't wake up until after 12:30. I couldn't believe it. The babies went over 4 hours in between feedings. It was awesome. We got so much sleep during that stretch. Then we put them back to sleep after feeding and prayed that they would stay that way for a while.
We didn't wake up again until after 4:00 am. They had another stretch of over 3 hours after the 4 hour stretch. I couldn't believe it. Then they slept until just after 7 am.
So, to sum it up, we got through a night where they only ate TWICE. I couldn't believe it. They have never done anything like this. They usually eat every two or three hours, which means that they eat something like 4 times a night.
They have continued this general trend over the past couple of nights. If they did this every night, it would change my life. I'm not banking on them continuing this in the future, but I'll certainly pray for more blissful nights like this.
