Sleep, Glorious Sleep!!

(It's not what you think.  The babies didn't sleep through the entire night.)

Last night, I was pretty tuckered out from the day.  I ran 3.25 miles with the babies on the Greenway that attaches to our subdivision.  Then I went to meet some other local mommies to walk the art trail at the NC Museum of Art (more about that later).  So, all in all, I'm sure I did at least 5 miles of walking/running yesterday.  Apparently, that took its toll on my body, because I went to bed at 7 PM.  I fed the babies, and then I just turned out the light and went to sleep.  Jason brought up my phone and a fresh bottle of water for me (thank you, sweetie!!) while I snoozed.

Miles woke back up again around 8:30 just crying his eyes out.  This is extremely unusual.  He hasn't done that in probably about 2 months or so, so it was really surprising.  I fed him again, and then the babies and I went back to sleep again.

The babies ate around 3 AM, and then they slept until 7.  I pulled Miles into bed with us and nursed him back to sleep (and fell back asleep myself).  We didn't get out of bed until 8.  It was awesome.

So, all in all, I would guess that I got at least 11 hours of sleep last night - probably closer to 12 hours, but it's hard to calculate accurately with the interruptions from my precious babies.

  1. ELEVEN HOURS???? That's amazing! I'm not sure what I'd do with that much, but I'd sure like to try!
    I'd love to do the art trail with you one Wednesday when it is warm enough! Better for my kiddos to take a walk outside and I'd love to see it myself.
