Gratituesday: Family and SLEEP!

I am so thankful for my husband and son. God blessed me abundantly. My son is nearly 8 months old now and was 4 weeks early. We have struggled with sleep all along. Gone are the days of nursing ALL NIGHT LONG with only 5 minute breaks here and there in the hopes of gaining a few ounces. Gone are the days of worrying if he's doing well, eating enough, sleeping enough. Things are easier now in many ways. He sleeps in his crib most of the night waking 2 - 3 times to eat. At his last waking he comes to bed with us and has recently let us sleep until about 8am each morning! He naps at roughly the same times every day although those naps rarely last more than 20 minutes unless he is sleeping on one of us. He is so mobile now - just about crawling. How this precious time of snuggles has flown by! I am also so thankful for how my hubby cares for us. He saw how tired I have been with the night wakings and my inability to nap during the day that he took the morning shift yesterday and let me sleep in until nearly 11am! It is amazing what a little extra sleep can do!
