After several nights of cough induced interrupted sleep, Leo slept in his bed all night again last night! He's only done it a handful of times previously but today was an especially big deal. I heard him crying - you know, that kind of half asleep pitiful cry at about 7:25am. I was half asleep myself and didn't think to do anything about it especially since he quieted within 30 seconds. I figured he'd nodded back off to sleep for a bit more. At 7:30 I heard 4 little feet padding into my room. I opened my eyes to see Clara holding her arm around Leo's shoulders leading him toward our bed. They climbed in and Clara told me that Leo cried when he woke up so she went down to his bunk and snuggled with him for awhile. Can I just get an "awwww"? She went on to say that he gave her one of his patented big hugs and left her ears alone (this is more shocking than anything else).
So, as you can imagine, Marc and I were full of praise for both kids accomplishments; Leo for being a "big boy" in his own bed and Clara for being such a loving big sister and comforting her brother when she heard him.
Now, this my friends, is how this Mama likes to wake up in the morning!
