What just happened here??

EJ woke up around 6:30 on this rainy Friday morning. He had been asleep all night so I was well-rested and ready to enjoy a morning of barley cereal and playing on the floor. I changed his diaper and return him to his crib with his music on so I can get a few things done first. I brush my teeth, wash up and get dressed. He's kicking away and having fun. Then I run down the hall to put a load of laundry in. He's still happy and cooing away so I sneak in to check my email and update FB and Twitter.

Then all is quite in his bedroom. No more music and no more cooing. So of course I wonder what is up so I quickly walk in there.

My little man has rolled onto his belly and GONE TO SLEEP!!!!! There are two things that amaze me about this. 1) He just woke up after 9 hours of sleep so how could he be tired? 2) He has NEVER just gone to sleep by himself like that. I am one of those terrible mothers who holds my baby until he's fast asleep and then I gently put him into his crib.

Wow. Just wow.

EJ loves that he can hold is head up so well now...
