It all worked out in the end...


Baby J has turned in to a pretty decent sleeper. He usually even sleeps in until 8:00 or 8:30. Not yesterday.

He woke up at 6:30 in tears. He was so frantic that I had trouble making out what he was saying until I got to his room (with Bean sound asleep in my arms - he doesn't sleep anywhere else, remember?!?!).

I want to go to sleep by myself!
I want to go to sleep by myself!
I want to go to sleep by myself!

Um, ok. That's not a problem for me!

So, I (gently) told him to lay down and go back to sleep. I started to leave the room when he layed down but then he started crying again.

I need my water!
I need it now!
My water in the blue cup. I need it now!

Um, ok. That's not a problem either.

So, I gave him his water (Bean still sleeping in my arms) and told him, again, to go back to sleep and headed back to my room with Bean.

I'm guessing he must have had a bad dream. Baby J did, indeed, go back to sleep. He slept until his usual 8:30. Bean never even stirred. I even went back to sleep - and that NEVER happens once I'm up. So, it all worked out in the end...no big deal.
