Parker woke up around 3:45 this morning to eat and I woke up refreshed. He hasn't slept this late in a while. I know that sooner than later, he is going to sleep until morning. I can't wait for this time to come! After he ate, I put him back to bed. I looked down to see him staring back at me. I immediately thought to myself, "great, it looks like we are both up for today".
I decided that I would take a chance and just left him laying in his crib, wide awake. When I got back to bed, I glanced at the monitor and saw this:
He was wide awake, twirling his pacifier in his hands. Not crying and not unhappy, just playing. I had to laugh, he seemed so content.
His attempts at being a night owl didn't last long, I found him like this less than 5 minutes later, sound asleep and his arm straight up.
