A Good Night's Sleep

YAY!!!!! Boston slept through the night last night. I know that sounds funny, given that he's 17 months old. Needless to say, he's not a sound sleeper. I can't remember the last time he didn't wake up. He usually wakes up 2 to 3 times. First because his diaper is wet and the other times because he just wants to snuggle. When I go in to lay him back down (he's usually sitting up saying "mama, mama" over the monitor) he puts his arms around my neck and pulls me as close as he can and then puts one leg over me ~ as far as his little leg will go and nuzzles his face in my neck (yep, he's totally got me wrapped around his little finger).

Oh, just in case you're confused Boston sleeps in the guest room on the Queen bed next door to his nursery and the crib that he's hardly ever slept in. So last night as I was putting him down (laying down next to him) he moves around and I feel this wet little mouth on my ear and then he turns my head and plants a huge, juicy kiss on my lips (keep in mind it's pitch black, he's not afraid of the dark). Between those kisses and the snuggling, he can sleep in any room he wants!!!! He knows exactly how to melt my heart~

The unused nursery.

How sweet! I love that story about his bedtime routine! Oh, and by the way, Kylie NEVER slept throught the night until she gave up her naps at age 3!!!! So, best of luck with that sleeping thing! Also, I still love lying down with her and snuggling - it is the BEST. I don't care what anyone says about it!

This may seem random...I was a good friend of Jeremiah's from our mission and I found your blog through Ann-Marie who is my/my sister's sister-in-law. Please tell Elder Forest I say hello.

Love your bedtime stories with Boston! Yup, with those kisses and snuggling, who wouldn't give him what he wants - anytime. What a sweet boy! Love you - can't wait to see you all.

Ann Marie,

So glad to hear that we're not the only one's with a hard sleeper. It makes me feel normal that we're not the only ones. Thanks for the comment.


It is so great to find long lost friends! Hope to hear from you again.

Yay for a full night sleep! But am I going to have to sleep in the nursery now when I visit and stay over? OR.... Can I snuggle with him? Miss you lots!
