Oh what a night.....

So an update on how Little Man survived last night in his big boy crib.

Around 6:30 p.m. he was ready for his dinner feeding. I decided it might be better to bathe him first to help soothe him and get him ready for bedtime after eating. (Yes, we do go to bed this early in my home, especially when Little Princess is with her daddy) So we bathed quickly and started feeding him by 6:45. He of course fell asleep while finishing his dinner. SO.....I laid him in his crib, surrounded him with rolled blankets and pillows to make him feel as though he were still being held. His sweet eyes cracked open to look at me, I kissed his forehead, said my "I love you's" and with that headed out of his room. He squirmed for a second, then I didn't hear another sound so I went downstairs. Lover Boy got the baby monitor and took one up to Little Man's bed and got it all working. Not a sound...
11:30 p.m. came around and a little cry on the baby monitor woke me, time to eat. Same routine as above.
3:14 a.m. and a much heartier cry broke out on the monitor, again it was time to eat.
3:44 a.m. a little fuss, I ran upstairs and by the time I made it to Little Man, he was back to sleep.
3:52 a.m. another little fuss, (you'd think I'd just lay and listen for a minute after learning from 8 minutes earlier) I ran upstairs again as good as I could that early in the morning...asleep again. Next time I will just listen for a minute.
6:20 a.m. I went to wake up the sleeping babe so we could take his daddy to work.

That is great Zaden is doing so good sleeping in a crib. Camden was horrid still is, but Carter is great to go to sleep in his crib and stay there. Hope it stays that way for ya.
