Rude Awakening

So the last week and a half the Baby has been totally sleeping through the night. No matter how much or how little he has napped throughout the day. Although, now that I have put it in writing he will immediately stop this.
Every night he will go down anytime between 8-10pm and sleep for 4-6 hours! Then he will get up, nurse (only on one side), I'll change his diaper (sometimes try the other side) and he will go down again for 4 more hours. The last 2 mornings he (AND the Kid) didn't get up until 8AM! How the hell did I get so lucky?? Of course, we do have one major problem....
This is where he sleeps.

This picture was on 10/27 and was a nap. At night we totally buckle him in and cover him with a blanket wrapped just around his legs, because he hates to have his hands covered if he wakes up and can't move around. Swaddling stopped at week 1.

What am I going to do when we move upstairs and his crib is all set up? I am sure the swing will follow us up there, but once he is mobile and the swing is just for play time and is no longer safe for him to be sleeping in while the whole house is also sleeping, oh boy. I have a feeling we are in for a rude awakening, literally.

So when you do move upstairs I am sure there will be a few rough nights but once settled all will be fine.
You can tell both boys are happy , secure and content!!
