Well, I have complained enough about lack of sleep that it seems criminal for me not to celebrate Simon's sleeping stats from last night. We got back from our trip to Texas yesterday afternoon. Simon's naps were interrupted all day by airplane and train rides. When his bedtime came around, Simon was out by 7:00 p.m.

Here's what happened next:

10:30 p.m.: I did a dream feed but he didn't eat much at all.

2:30 a.m.: Simon cries out and Jeff gives him pacifier.

6:47 a.m.: Simon wakes up smiling and cooing like a precious little baby llama (baby llamas are known for their preciousness).

This is the longest Simon has gone without food since he started breathing oxygen. He's 4 months, 1 week and 2 days old. He went a long ass time. Tonight I was going to give him some brown rice cereal for the first time ever, but we are a superstitious lot and didn't want to jinx ourselves in case it kept him from sleeping.

This could be a real game changer for our household. I pray to god that we get more and more of that kind of sleeping. I hope it doesn't require a daily plane trip to achieve.
