slept through the night

our baby has a lot of trouble sleeping. 

as a newborn, he never liked to take long naps, preferring to sleep in 30 minute increments.  at night, he would wake up every 2-3 hours to eat. 

as an infant, he is still having problems.  he takes 4-5 naps a day, all between 15-30 minutes long (rarely, he will sleep for an hour to 90 minutes).  we put him to bed around 9 oclock, and he has been waking up between 2-4 because he's hungry (we have a fairly skinny baby, who must have a high metabolism.  he still eats every 2-3 hours during the day too!). 

lately, he has been waking up on his own around 5-5:30am.  it has been killing my wife and i.  we can't get any continuous sleep.

but last night, he slept from 9 until 6 oclock this morning.  9 hours straight without waking up.  this means that she got around 7.5 hours of sleep, and i got almost 6 hours of uninterrupted sleep (stayed up later to work).

i feel awesome.  hope he keeps it up!
