I always keep my stopwatch running from feeding to feeding. 2 hours. 2 hours. 2.5 hours. 2 hours. 3 hours. 1 hr 20 min. Those are normal times I see on the watch. I never ever ever EVERRRR thought Blaine could jump from those small numbers to a stretch of almost 7.

But it was a cheater 7: I fed him and left him at "Daddy DayCare" to go to the high school football game with my mom. We were going to leave after halftime (with a team that was 0-10 last season, the band is the real reason to go to these things), and be home in about 2.5 hours. So I knew Blaine wouldn't need a meal, but left 2 oz of pumped milk incase of a meltdown. Yep, daddy / grandpa had a baby meltdown and had to use the bottle after an hour and 20 minutes. Blaine only drank 1 oz so it was more of a comfort feed. The next time I fed him? AFTER 1 AM!!! OMG OMG OMG. One more way it was cheating; we left him sleeping in his carseast from 10 pm - 1 am. Hey whatever works. LOL.

Sleeping through the night might actually be closer than I thought :)

Holy crap - I'm so friggin' jealous! We stopped waking the boys (without pediatrician approval, but that's another story for another time) at 3:00 am - they consistently wake up at 2:50... grrr. Someday I'll join you in the 'more than 3 hrs of sleep' club!

Don't worry - pictures and an update will hopefully be coming soon. :0)
