Dare I

We may be celebrating the inauguration of the president elect tomorrow but I am revelling in our own initiation here in the Sticky household.

Dare I even speak of the monumental event that is occurring right now?

I am sure that the mere act of typing the words is enough to jinx it. But I may implode if I can't share my elation.

My son is asleep.

In his crib.

And has been for about 20 minutes now.

Do you realize how big a deal this is? Not just big. Monumental.

Let's see how long this lasts.

That event took a week for us to pull off.

Ok, now are you going to share the secret? We could use some help getting to this magical moment.

That's great news! There are so many varied emotions involved with the first night's sleep in the crib. I hope the night goes very smoothly for all of you. :)

Melissa said...

That is terrific! I hope he had a nice nap in his crib. ;-)

It's funny - my daughter won't sleep anywhere BUT her crib. Bassinets, co-sleepers, carseats - she'll have none of that. It's crazy how our babies are polar opposites.

I'm hoping it lasts and lasts! We made it 4 1/2 hours in the crib last night then moved to the carseat. She slept, so I'll take it...but I can't wait for her to be in the crib! :)

Woo Hoo! Congratulations. I hope the rest of the night goes smoothly and all the nights to follow!

Hopefully this is a turn in the right direction!

hello, cute blog! Don't you just love it when they sleep in their cribs? I recently had a similar experience. My two year old finally slept in his own bed in his own room, for the entire night. lol =) the joys of being a mom, huh.
