Yesterday was a long day for little Donovan.  Things were pretty much normal until after his lunch-time feeding.  Since I was feeling a little better than the day before, we went to visit Grant at work around 2:30.  Since Donovan just ate, I fully expected him to fall asleep in the car on the way over like he always does–even though it’s just a 10 minute car ride.  But when we got there, he was fully awake.  Not fussy (thank goodness), but just awake and checking things out.  Grant decided he needed help getting some work done.

On the way home, he fell asleep and stayed asleep in his carseat for about 20 minutes after we got home.  Then he stayed awake.  And awake.  And awake.  After eating two or three times, my son was still up!!!  A first, for sure. By 10:45 pm he was fighting it big time!

Grant was exhausted too, but this kid was determined to stay up.

Sucking on Grant’s finger did the trick (we’re trying not to use pacifiers) because he finally was out!

Donovan slept so good last night, waking at his normal times to eat (3:00 am and 7:00 am).  I feel very fortunate to have a baby that loves to sleep and who really only wakes up once in the middle of the night.  Here’s hoping it continues!!
