There is a wide range of what is considered sleeping through the night. Last night the boys slept from 7:30 pm until 4 am, 8.5 hours! I didn’t enjoy the 4 am feeding, but it’s much better than having a 1 am and 5 am feeding. I’m calling it sleeping through the night. I am still setting an alarm to pump every 3 hours, but it’s so much easier to wake up for the 25 minutes to pump instead of the hour it takes to feed and pump.
In addition to the boys sleeping longer between nighttime feedings they have all been really smiley and giggly the last couple days. Nothing melts you heart like walking into a room and having all 3 give you a big gummy grin. We sure are lucky to have such happy little guys.

Completely unrelated, we’ve entered a photo of the boys in a Halloween photo contest on the Multiples and More blog. We’ve made the top 40. I assume it will be narrowed to top 20, then 10 and possibly top 5. First prize includes a double stroller, something we’ll be needing next year if we ever want to go out in public without drawing a crowd. If you have a chance please vote, the boys are #10. Voting is simple, click to go to the Multiples and More blog, select #10 on the sidebar and submit. Thanks!
