Cheerily Chomping Cheerios
Last night went pretty well. Ben cried for about 2 hours, which WASN'T easy, but after he went to sleep the first time, whenever he'd wake up he only fussed for a minute or so then went back to sleep. Mike and I went to bed around 11:30 after making brownies together. He slept in the livingroom so he wouldn't wake Ben up with snoring. He will come back to the bedroom and Ben will have to learn to deal with it, but for now we just want Ben to get used to sleeping all night and in his crib.
He woke up this morning at 6:30. I got him out of his crib and fed him-he ate quite a bit! I cuddled him and talked to him about the night. He seemed quite happy. He fell back asleep after eating, so I just laid him down in our bed (still just blankets on the floor) and he slept for another 45 minutes. When he woke up again he was his usual cheerful self!
I hope tonight goes even better! I didn't get much more sleep than usual last night since I woke up every time he did, but I have high hopes for tonight.
On another note, he tried cheerios for the first time this morning, and he very much enjoyed them!
