I'm totally courting the jinxing gods by writing this, but my son has been asleep - in his crib - for 57 minutes now.
Where's Guinness, because this is a freaking world record.
What's more? For the past two nights Will has slept like a human. We've gone from absolute hysteria for hours on end to less than five minutes of half-hearted protests and then out like a light. We lay him down, he rolls on his stomach, and sleeps for - get this - 9 to 10 hours. Solid. He still wakes up at 4 am but now we just pull him into bed. And you know, it's not that bad. He nurses for a few minutes and then buries himself in my armpit and conks out. (Ah, the soothing scent of deodorant.) Want to know our secret? Getting him really drowsy. I mean reallllllly drowsy. He's still technically awake when we do the transfer - he always opens his eyes - but he's pretty close to the edge when we put him down. I hear him self-soothing at various points throughout the night so I know he can do it... That's not cheating, right? (Cheating, schmeeting! He's a-freaking-sleep!)
1 hour, 15 minutes. And counting.
