He made a liar out of me.

I was just bragging to my mom about how well Declan goes to sleep. I give him his bath, then swaddle him and give him his bedtime bottle. He falls asleep while finishing it, and I rock him a little bit, then put him in his crib and he'll stay asleep until 2 or 4 or 6. You never can tell. But he will sleep at least 6 hours.

Until tonight. About an hour after I put him down, he started screaming. Turned out he had wiggled one hand loose from his swaddle, pulled out his paci, and realized he was still hungry. My goodness, you'd think he was starving, but he'd just eaten 4 ounces. Crazy kid.

After another 4 ounces, he's swaddled again and back to sleep. Let's hope that holds him until 6 tomorrow morning.
