Redbirds 72...Braves 68

Yay! We beat the Bradley Braves! It was such an exciting game. We went to the 'Pre-game' and Austin finally got to meet up with Reggie. I can't believe it, but he acutally slept through the first half again. It was so loud!

Austin slept all night in his bassinet! He made it for 8 hours straight! This is such an accomplishment. I have worked hard all week to get him to stay in his own bed since Sunday night. He typically wakes up at 2:30 or 3 and wants in bed with Mommy! I use to put him in bed with me and nurse him back to sleep. I typically fell asleep right away too. I decided to make myself stay awake...I did and learned he was only nursing for about 4 minutes. So, obviously he isn't hungry, but wants to know that Mommy is near. So I have been letting him fuss a little and put the 'womb bear' next to him. It's actually working! The 'awake time' is dwindling each night and last night he hardly fussed at all! Now, you would have thought I would have slept great with an 8 hours of mostly undisturbed sleep...but No, I awoke at 4am startled and had to check to make sure he was still in his bed and breathing! Hopefully someday soon we'll get him in his lovely bedroom that we worked so hard on!
