Last night, a miracle occurred. Edith complained and shouted and kicked her way to sleep from 6:15 to 7:00 p.m. and then, readers, she slept until 6:30 THIS MORNING!!!
At her usual night feeding time of 4:00 a.m., I woke up to see why she wasn’t getting up, and at the same time, she issued a single trumpeting shout into the darkness, but then she was quiet again. I woke up again at what was probably 5:00 wondering why I was asleep, and it was still quiet. I assumed it was 4:05 a.m. and I would be getting up shortly. Then, Edith began to cry and I got up and looked at my phone, expecting it to be 4:30 and, lo, it was fully morning.
I felt more exhausted today than I’ve felt in months, for some reason. I am trying not to get my hopes up that this might happen again.
