A Full Night of ZZZZZZZZZZZ!!

Last night Cooper finally did something that I had pretty much given up on...that's right folks, he SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT!!! Last evening we went to dinner for a friend's birthday where Cooper decided to take a nap at the restaurant and afterwards at her house. I just KNEW he would be up half the night since he took that nap so late in the evening. Boy he sure showed me! David and I woke up at 3:30 a.m...While I was trying to remember if this was the first time I had woken up in the night, David went to check on Cooper. He was stirring a little and making his sweet sleeping baby noises, but never opened his eyes. Five minutes later, after I had determined, that yes, this was my first time awake, I couldn't stand it and went in the nursery to see for myself. There he was, STILL sleeping like an angel. I went back to sleep, figuring I'd be up nursing the baby in the next hour or so. WRONG AGAIN! Cooper woke us up with his sweet baby waking noises at 6:30 a.m. Still unable to believe it, I checked my Itzbeen (my very handy mommy tool that really requires its own post sometime), and sure enough, he had been asleep for 7 and 1/2 hours! While he may not do it again for a while, I can still record it in his baby book: Cooper first slept through the night on our friend Libby's birthday...January 28th, 2009!
