He's such a sweetheart, I just love that boy!
It's been over a week...
that Toms has been sleeping in his own bed! Yeah for me! I just decided it needed to happen and it's been great! The first night I sat in the room with him just quietly rocking in the chair while he cried for about 45 minutes. He finally nodded off and I crept out of the room. He woke up a few times in the night crying, but I just let him cry himself back to sleep, it was only about 10 minutes every time. So each night I take him into the bedroom and lay him in his crib and sit in the chair for a bit until he falls asleep. After about the second night of this he started to calm right down and go to sleep within only a few minutes. It's so great! One morning he didn't even wake up until 10 or so! Whoo hoo! I'm so happy that I have found the strength within me to let him go a little bit. I am getting such a great nights rest, I can't even tell you! He is becoming more independent from the whole thing as well. The other morning after I dressed him and got him ready for the day he wanted to play in his room. Usually he only wants to be in their if I am in there. This time I put him down and he looked up at me and said "Bye!". It was great! I went into my bedroom to get myself ready and he stayed back and played with his toys.
