the ever changing pattern of sleep

The second night we were home I fell asleep on the couch and Benjamin sent me upstairs to get some sleep until Natalie needed to eat. I gladly went to sleep, and woke up at 11. I came downstairs and Natalie was laying on Benjamin's chest, and the two were just out. I immediately started balling because I slept for 3 hours!!!!!! Obviously I'm so emotional but it was just funny. Sleeping for 3 hours was just heaven!

Natalie is a great sleeper and although she's not quite a week old, she has already spoiled us. We're enjoying it for now, and hoping it will last.

I know you guys get a little anxious when she sleeps for so long straight (without feeding and stuff) but another thought I had was that she was early. Early babies tend to sleep more b/c they would still be in the womb...so just a thought...I don't really know...you hear so much stuff it's hard to really know!
