This happened about two weeks ago during Noah’s growth spurt, in which he woke up every two or three hours for milk at night.
After yet another exhausting night, I was trying to go back to sleep at about 7am when C woke up, looked at me and said happily, “Hey! He slept through the night!”
Me: What? This is the fifth time I’ve woken up already! You just slept through it all…
A few days later, after I had gotten Noah to fall asleep after nursing him, C woke up and asked, “He just woke up for milk?”
Me: Yes, this is the second time I’ve woken up tonight already.
C: Huh? Second time only? I’ve woken up five times already! You just slept through it all…
Me: (thoroughly confused due to the lack of sleep) How’s that possible? I didn’t hear him and YOU did? How did you get him to go back to sleep without milk?
It then dawned on me that he was trying to be funny by repeating what I said the previous night. Duh. There’s no way he would have been able to (a) hear Noah fussing if I didn’t and (b) get him to go back to sleep on his own!
