Sleeping Update and Travel

Yay! The Blueberry more or less slept normally last night! He went down after dinner around 7:30 p.m. and napped in the living room with his daddy until 11-11:30 when he woke up to eat. He had a little trouble settling down in his bassinet after that, but was out for the count at 1:00 a.m.. Then slept until his regular feeding just after 3:00 a.m.. He ate and went right back to sleep until nearly 8:00 a.m. We ate a couple of times, had a bath, and went down for his morning nap right on schedule.

It's rather scary just how on schedule he's been these past 18 hours or so. Maybe this is a sign that we're done with this growth spurt for the moment? Or maybe he knew that Mommy desperately needed sleep last night having only had three-and-a-half hours the night before? Or maybe he's got Mommy's cold and needed the rest? Who knows? I just know I'll take it.

In case you were wondering, we're not leaving for Chicago until tomorrow. I was exhausted yesterday didn't want to pull an all-nighter the night before undertaking a long drive through stormy weather. Winter Storm Draco is dumping a ton of snow in our path, pretty much no matter which way we go.


Sadly, the storm won't touch Chicago with much more than some rain and flurries. I want to play in snow, not just drive through it. If you're traveling this weekend, I wish you safe travels. Whether you're traveling by air or car, patience and caution will go a long way towards ensuring a merrier Christmas.
