Sleeping Beauty

The Muffin Man had his four month checkup yesterday.  I'm happy to report that he's healthy and exceptionally tall for his age, so it seems that my marginal mothering skills haven't damaged him too much. I almost died laughing, however, when the pediatrician told me that Noah would be classified as a "great sleeper".  Um, seriously?  Granted the kid has slept through the night a couple of times, but more often than not he's up every three hours.  If that's considered a great sleeper, I seriously feel for the parents of kids who do not fall into this category.  How are these people functioning?!  The only thing that keeps me going is the hope that tonight could be one of the nights when Noah decides to sleep for 12 hours straight.  I'm pretty sure that if I was the Mother of a "terrible sleeper" I would have long ago checked myself into the psych ward; there's a reason sleep deprivation is used as a method of torture - it makes you crazy.  I suppose I should be grateful that my son is a great sleeper, I'll just try to keep reminding myself of this when I'm up with him at 2am, 4am and 6am tomorrow morning.
