Is it day 6? I'm losing track. I think tomorrow will be a week. He fell asleep on my at 8:15, then woke up crying when I put him down in the crib. It's hard to stay committed. I want to pick him up and let him dream in my arms. I really really want to do that. But doing that is a huge commitment beyond one sleepy night. He doesn't always fall asleep so easy. And I am enjoying the little bit of freedom in the evening. So I smooth back his hair and tell him he can do this, he can sleep on his own, and I love him, I believe in him, I'll check on him in a few minutes. In a few minutes he's asleep. He is still alseep. He learns. Sometimes it's harder for me to learn. Sentimental mama.
