just wanted to anounce it to the world! lol
my only update is that we lowered his crib today. he hasnt learned to pull up yet but im too scared he will learn how to in his sleep and fall down...
speaking of falling down :-( i was nursing him in bed like a week ago and he was towards the outside edge of the bed. i never ever fall asleep when he is like that but this time i did and although he couldnt roll off because of the pillow behind him, he managed to crawl off. i heard a boom (1 liter water bottle broke his fall) and then delayed crying. DH flew, like superman, to my side of the bed to see if LO was ok. he was absoloutly fine, just scared out of his wits!
anyway, that episode is what frightened me into lowering the crib because he is such a curious lil guy he might experiment during one of his night wakings.
speaking of night wakings...i have come to accept that his STTN was just a 5 month phase and that waking up 3-4 times a night is my new reality,lol.
i was advised by one of DH's girl friends, who is a mommy as well, to let him CIO. to be exact, when i told her that he wakes often during the night she was unfased. then DH made a comment about me being run down from running to his room so often and she had a look of horror on her face and exclaimed, "you get out of bed every time! just let him cry, nothing happens if you let them cry, he will just go back to sleep."
i didnt argue, i just told her that i dont feel comfortable with doing that and she shrugged and dropped the subject.
how could i let my darling cry alone in the dark? he's my lil shnookum cake!
