After nine wonderful months of waiting, that special moment has finally arrived for our family:
Our son finally slept through the night.
I awoke with a start, worrying what may have happened. Blurry from more than three hours of consecutive sleep, distorted by a strange glow (could that be the sun?), and panicked over the well being of my son, I raced into his room only to find him cooing away, more than a little pleased with his own accomplishment.
Now, I realize there is a good chance this won't happen again for a while, but at least we know he can do it.
