Guy's Night

Recently, Friday nights have become guy's night. Not a night where Jeremy leaves me to go and play poker. Though, I think he could use some nights like these. But instead, it's a night where Jeremy take night duty with Pax. And I sleep, somewhat soundly, next to them. Normally, every other night of the week, I get night duty. It makes sense to me. I stay home with the boys, while Jeremy gets up early and goes to work every day. Not that my job is easy. Jeremy has said you couldn't pay him any amount of money to trade jobs with me. But, there is a rare occassion that both boys are sleeping and I can rest. Choosing to rest, instead of cleaning, blogging or prepare a meal is a different story. But either way, it makes sense for me to normally do night duty. Paxton normally sleeps okay. I'm not saying good. Just okay. We normally just have to do one nighttime feeding. But, at this point with Holden he was close to sleeping 12 uninterrupted hours at night. I now know that we were lucky with Holden's sleep patterns. Paxton is doing 6 hours at a time . . . MAX. And 6 is good for him. Sometimes it's closer to 4. We have to stretch him out to do 6. And he is developing the quite belly and thighs to show for all of that nighttime eating. I do love that baby fat! Anyways, back to my story. Last night was guy's night. It was kind of rough, I think, by seeing 2 used bottles this morning. So I got up at 7:30 with Holden and let the party guys sleep in this morning. For the record, to anyone that is judging us from this picture: Paxton doesn't sleep in our bed. This was just a morning cuddle, I guess.

Aww, how sweet! And great that your husband takes over night duty one night a week. It's hard to wake up and take care of a little one in the wee hours!

And I would never judge you or anyone for a baby sleeping in their bed *or* a crib. Since my babies do sleep with us, I wouldn't want to be judged for that, either!

Would you believe the first night Ryan too night duty, was the first night Molly slept through the night? Go figure. (We were lucky with her too though, she was only 5.5 weeks old.) Good for you Jeremy!
