Crying it Out...

We are finally putting Gabriel's crib to good use even though we brought him home from Guatemala nine months ago. It was time for him to learn the term "cry it out". Tonight is Day 4 of CIO and we are going strong! Sometimes for the sanity of everyone involved, it's best to pull it off like a bandaid and make it through that first night of crying. After that, it's all downhill! Now we put him in his crib and within ten minutes he's down for the count! Here's to getting some good sleep again!! We were beginning to forget what that was like.
