Fox has a love-hate relationship with sleeping and napping. He loves to rest, but he also loves to play and be around his mom and dad (I like to think). Often, he puts up a little bit of a fight when being put him in his crib. We've learned to just let him cry it out, because he'll usually fall asleep within a few minutes. It's kind of sad though, because he sometimes panics a little if we go in his room and get too close to his crib -he automatically thinks we're putting him down for a nap or something (or worse, we're going to change his diaper).
I don't know if it's because he turns one on Monday or what, but yesterday he blew all of my notions of him out of the water when he basically put himself to bed! It was getting close to his bedtime and he was just playing in the front room with me. He started getting a little fussy, but I figured I'd wait a little longer because it wasn't quite bedtime yet. Fox was apparently sick of waiting though, because he up and crawled away from me and into his room and then paused in front of his crib. He looked over at me as if to say, "put me to bed already, dangit!" So I did and he went right to sleep. Didn't fight it at all.
Is this a new thing, Fox? Same time, same place tonight? Cool.
