How does time pass so quickly right in front of our eyes?! I'm still in denial that our baby boy is 6 months old!! He is a Love, and he continues to amaze and make me smile every single day! So what has my 6 month (ahh!) boy been up to:
He now sleeps unswaddled completely. It was, what seemed like, a delicate process but worked out great and hes loving it. He usually sleeps on his side now that he isn't swaddled. Another thing we've done was getting him to put himself to sleep at night. He was almost 6 months old and didn't know how. So I thought it my mission to help him. In the book I'm reading (yes I know its shocking...I'm not a big reader) it talked about the Ferber Method of getting them to sleep on their own. It said to lay them down when they are tired but awake and if they begin to cry wait 5 min before entering the room again. Talk to them for a second then leave and if still crying wait 10 min, then 15 min before entering again. Well I thought for sure that this was going to be an awful night. He did Awesome! I layed him down and he cried for 4 minutes! Then went to sleep and didn't wake up until 7 the next morning! He had done so much better than I expected. And from then on he has been putting himself to sleep every night with no troubles. =0). Yay E!
