Success?

Well we don't want to get our hopes up too much, but Logan FINALLY slept in his crib last night in his room by himself!  He dozed from 10p - 7a!  He is 5 months tomorrow so some of you are probably saying, "It's about time!" while others are probably saying "Too soon!"  Either way, this was the right time for us, we have been working this week to get him out of our room completely and have him learn to put himself to sleep on his own.  It's been a challenge since we are also pushing this for his naps at home. 

But the good news is, so far it seems like he is catching on very fast.  There have been quite a few tears, which breaks my (not Roberto's) heart but I know we aren't killing him and that he will survive.  Thanks to my girlfriend recommending a great book (thanks Andrea!) called "Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child" and some tips from her after she had huge success w/her own daughter and this book, he may be well on his way.  Although, to avoid the cry fests, I think we are going to have to move his bath and bedtime up a little earlier, at least for a little bit.  We'll have to really work on getting him some good naps (which by the way he is taking one right now, only about 2.5 hrs after he woke up) during the day and getting him in his crib to put himself to sleep before 8pm.  We'll see how the rest of the week goes....
