Those of you who know me are probably familiar with Hal's struggles in the sleeping department. He makes up for being the sweetest little boy in the world (he's a lover, not a fighter) by being the worst sleeper in the world. Having said that, since he turned 18 months (about 9 months ago), life has been much better. He naps like a champ, and there are only a few midnight (or 3AM) feedings/week, as opposed to 5/night.
Well, Hal's crib broke last night. His new bed (until we head to Ikea for a toddler bed) is his crib mattress on the floor. He's being a real trooper, but it's obviously a struggle for him. I'm bummed, because I feel like he's really not ready for the bed yet, but buying a crib, and then a toddler bed in a few months seems ridiculous. It's just not an option for us.
We're trying to be really positive and excited about his new bed, and telling him what a big boy he is. Keep your fingers crossed for sweet Baby Hal!
P.S. I'm blogging at 2AM and keeping watch at his door...only 10 escapes so far.
