Oliver's Sporatic Sleeping Patterns

On Thursday night, Oliver slept from 7pm to 3:30am in one stretch, and then he got up for the day at 6:30am.

Friday night, he went to bed at 7pm, but he woke up at 11pm. He cried for about half an hour before he went back to sleep. Then, he got up at 1am. I nursed him, and he went back to bed until 4:30am, when he got up for the day.

Saturday night, he went to bed at 7pm and didn't stir until 3:30am. I nursed him right away, and he slept until 6:15.

Last night, he couldn't stay awake, and we finally put him to bed at 6:15pm. He woke at 9:30pm and went back to bed after I nursed him. He was up again at 2:30am and then 3am; he got up for the day at 4:15am.

It seems Oliver either has a very good night and sleeps more than 8 hours at a time, or he has a terrible night and wakes constantly and gets up early. The nights he sleeps for a very long stretch are becoming more and more common. I'm very grateful for that. However, it seems like the difficult nights are becoming more common, too. Is that possible?
