Who kidnapped our baby…

Posted on July 26th, 2007 by Thomas and Kymberlie.

…and replaced him with one who sleeps for 12 hours?!?

Last night, Elliot went to sleep at 10PM, and as of 9AM 9:30AM this morning, is still sleeping. He only woke up twice to eat. This is totally unprecedented.

Elliot sleeping 12 hoursI know, I know, you are skeptical. As proof, I’ve included an actual photo taken at 9:10AM. Notice the bright daylight coming through the windows.

Being the good, meticulous and attentive parents we are, we introduced multiple new variables at the same time last night that could account for his good night’s sleep, and we now have no idea which was the cause. They are:

1. No A/C (40+ days of rain has left Austin a bit cooler). He doesn’t seem to like the A/C, and has always slept better outdoors.

2. Windows open. A lot of white noise, bugs chirping, etc…

3. Fed him a little cereal mixed with breast milk before bed.

I’m sure it was a combination of all three things. Whatever the cause, it was nice to get so much uninterrupted sleep.
