On a different note, our little baby boy has achieved yet another milestone (actually a two-parter, if you will). It started off exactly one week prior to Halloween. As I put Isaiah down for the night, he asked for his pacifier. I saw this as an opportunity to wean him off it, so I told him that I couldn't find it. Of course he knew where it was and he even had a clear line of sight to it, but I used the age-old jedi mind trick and insisted that it was "nowhere to be found." Hehehe, "these are not the droids you're looking for..." Though he continued to ask, I stood my ground and eventually he fell asleep. The next day for his nap he inquired about it, but we held firm. By the next day, he stopped asking for it, and would immediately ask "its gone?" as if he knew that's what we'd tell him. It's been about a week and a half now, and his pacifier is all but a memory. Score!
The second part of his milestone is that he is no longer in a crib, but in his big boy bed! He accepted the bed with welcoming arms, and loves to jump in it like his sister does in hers. The first nap was a bit tough, because he realized that he had the freedom to get in and out of bed as he pleased. After numerous returns to bed, and after raising our voices, he finally tired out and slept for a solid couple of hours. His first night went well, though we had the time change there to help us. He's now on day three of his bed, and he's enjoying it! He still likes to play before his naps, but hopefully that'll lose its luster, and he'll learn to stay in bed when it's bedtime! For now, we're so proud that the little man is making strides and "movin' on up!"
