2 Nights Down

And we had success on night number 2!  Seriously!  I actually had to wake him up to leave the house this morning to go to work.  Whether or not he was still asleep from crying throughout the night I have no clue but regardless, he slept in his crib, I slept in my bed and when I went in his room this morning, he was again, Alive and Breathing!  Oh thank goodness!
There is no other feeling in the world like the one when I walk into his room and his eyes meet mine and his face lights up.  And he giggles and holds his arms out for me to fold him into mine.  And when I turn the lights on and he buries his head in my chest and giggles at the all-of-a-sudden brightness of the overhead light.  Or when he gets excited to get up in the morning and lets out a high pitched "Hi-Ya" like he's doing a karate move.  Swear.  That's exactly what it sounded like.  There is no better way to start my day.
And there is no better way to end my day than with a sleeping child.  And you know he is truly gone when his paci falls out of his mouth yet his tongue is still sucking away.  When his uncontrollable facial muscles allow me to see just one more smile on his face before he's down for the night.  When I take that last peak at the monitor and see how he's rolled over onto his knees and sleeping with his butt up in the air before I can then turn it off.  He looks so peaceful.  So calm.
And then and only then, I can finally get some restful sleep!

  1. So glad your sleeping now. It's the only way he's going to learn to sleep on his own. Your doing great and it won't hurt him even though it hurts you! :) Love you
