Not a bad night, but not super

The Boy got over the first hurdle in sleeping in his own room, which was the panic wakeup after the first sleep cycle. He was asleep at 9-ish and didn't wake up again until about 1. Unfortunately, he was out of bed at that point and needed help to fall back asleep. He was asleep for awhile, then up again at 3:45 and out of bed again. We took turns.

Once again, at 5:45, he was awake, and welcomed into our bed.

It wasn't a bad night, being that it was only the 2nd night (not counting the diaper change night fiasco) that we had put him in there. But since we've been so spoiled by having him in our bed with us, having him find us and go back to sleep, rarely interrupting us, this is a little bit harder.

This process will probably take longer than if we were to just let him cry to go to sleep, or let him cry in the middle of the night, but it's worth it to me to spend the extra time and not let the child with high blood pressure scream for hours.
