I very vividly remember the first time Ellie slept through the night. She was about 3 months old and I kept going in to make sure she was still breathing. I'm sure all new moms do the same thing. It was not a very restful night for me, not only because I felt like I was going to pop if she didn't wake up and eat soon (again, I'm sure you've been there...), but also because I was sure she was going to wake up any minute.

Well guess who slept through the night for the first time in months last night! Finally! And my reaction was NOT the same. I slept for 7 uninterrupted hours and it was heavenly. How did we celebrate?

Ice cream for breakfast, naturally. It's amazing how nice I can be after a full nights' sleep! We had chocolate pancakes with vanilla ice cream and strawberry sauce. Ellie loved it. And she's been so very happy and agreeable today. I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but I really want this to continue.

I think the kids are hoping for more desserts for breakfast, too.


  1. Oh no sleep is so hard, I'm glad you're making progress!

  2. I know exactly what you mean. Brooklynn slept through the night at 4 months and Cameron tried until he got his helmet. It ruined everything. It is lovely sleeping all night, isn't it? Can I come celebrate with you? Your breakfast looks delicious.
