This day in baby Dean's history

I need to mark 7/29/09 on Dean's baby calendar as the first time he slept through the night. I am not sure if this is the start of something spectacular or just a fluke. He went down about 9 and did not wake until 7:30 this morning.

Rod and I just looked at each other this morning thinking one of us had fed him during the night. Discovering that he did indeed sleep through the night, we were shocked and awed. I am hoping something in Dean's circadian rhythm has clicked. That would help tremendously in getting both of them to sleep through the night. These are great articles regarding sleep cycles in infants and children.
