Tonight will be our first attempt at laying the boy down after he eats and waiting for him to sleep on his own. Sounds simple enough, right? Well, it is only 9:41 pm and he is already really cranky. As I type, he is doing my favorite whine. I am sure that in the next hour I will need to set up the monitor, so we can watch the red line shoot to the highest setting, all the while, listening to some calming music on my headphones to avoid his sad puppy dog cry. Wish me luck...if all the books are right, maybe only a week of torture until he sleeps a respectable 6-8 hours without waking.
