Time to go night, night

Drew started something new this week: standing in the crib! As soon as we put him down, he'll roll over, scoot back, and pull up on the bars. He's quite adept at getting on his feet these days. I have tried putting him in the sleep sack, but even that can't stop him. So, after saying "night, night" and giving hugs & kisses, I leave my son weeping behind bars. Soon these tears disappear and the playing begins. After about 30 minutes, and a bit more whining, he will settle back down and go to sleep. Has anyone else experienced this?!?

Ha! It sounds like he's doing a fine job of putting himself to sleep. Totally normal, and a really important skill. Just wait until he learns how to manipulate you by asking for more food, water, toys, kitty, play, etc right before night-night. (Evil laugh)

Yes, yes, yes indeed.

Last night V-chip asked me for grapes about 8 times to distract me from putting her to bed.

At least he's putting himself to sleep! Sounds like he's doing fine...mine weren't nearly so nice about bedtime.
