Sunday night through Thursday night - Little Man goes down at 7:30. Sleeps great until it is time for Mommy to go to bed (usually around 10-10:30). He fusses some, but doesn't really wake up. Anytime between 3 and 5 rolls around and he is awake, crying and hungry. Mommy gets up (my job since Keith works very hard so I can stay home with them, and I do appreciate it), changes diaper, feeds, and gets him back to sleep. I then go back to sleep until 6:30, get woke up (not on purpose) because Keith has to get up and get ready for work. I dose on and off until 7 - 7:30 and get up. Then we go about our day.
Friday night. Little man goes down at 7:30. Sleeps great and only turns over when we go to bed (at 11). Then it is 3am. One random yell out and nothing until 5:50am. At which he wakes up in a rather good mood, but does start to make a little more noise than a good idea if we want sister to stay sleeping. Daddy gets up (the night I am supposed to get a break) and takes care of things. Usually he falls back asleep and sleeps until 8.
It's a conspiracy!
He has it worked out with his Daddy that if he (daddy) is getting up, Little Man is going to sleep. Now granted I do benefit from this conspiracy as well. I am not being woke up at 3 either, but what's the deal here!
