So, for the last two nights I've managed to nurse Eli and then place him in his crib and wait until he falls asleep on his own. Last night he did not wake until 4:40 am!!!!!! whew. I went to him and he liked being rocked for a little while and then put up a strong protest for a good 20 minutes. Alas, the magic number arrived, 5:30 am, he was free to nurse but not to fall asleep. He was fine with this plan. Well, the crying woke Eva and she opened the door to our room. I jumped up to let her know where she could find Daddy, she immediately said, "Eli need to be in the rocking chair!" I laughed and reassured her with a kiss and let her know tha,t in fact, Eli had done his time in the rocking chair. Satisfied with this answer, she trotted off.

So tonight it begins, Daddy will take charge of the night time routine. I welome being back with Eva. I've missed being a part of her night time routine. We will see how it goes!
Eva made the jump to her big girl bed in preparation for Eli sleeping in her old crib. She has patiently waited for three months. She's finally given up on asking everynight, "Eeii sleep here?" only to hear, "Eli still cries at night, when he sleeps all night he can sleep with you." Last month, Eva responeded to this saying, "Eeii cries at night, I'll give him a bottle of water..." She's ready!
