A bundle of sweetness

Tomorrow Samuel will be 6 weeks old.

How is that possible?

To celebrate this milestone he slept 11-5:30 two nights ago and he slept 11-7 (8 hours!) last night for the first time. Of course, I didn't sleep 11-7 because I thought for certain there must be something wrong.

I truly love the late-night feedings...everything is so quiet and calm and it's just me and my boy sharing secrets late at night.

But I also love sleep so it's a beautiful thing to get 6+ hours in a row.

Now my second favorite time with Samuel is early in the morning after he wakes up and we have breakfast together in bed. He has 4 oz of formula and I have toast or cereal.

Then I read or write or sleep and he sleeps on the pillow next to me for a couple hours.

I know this could lead to some bad habits...but for now I'm not letting that stop me. Before long I'm sure he'll outgrow my pillow and we'll be on to something new.

For now, I love to look over at my bundle of sweetness....and this is what I see:
