before bed

I just wanted to take a moment before going to bed tonight for a little gratitude. I so appreciate all the support flowing this way right now, both from the blog and from facebook. Your comments, emails, messages and calls have really sustained me. Thank you so much for taking an interest in this little family and sending your words of encouragement.

I'm also glad to say that today was markedly easier. Tonight, Max fell asleep with me by the side of his crib, singing to him after only five minutes of lying there. He fussed for less than a minute and there was absolutely no crying, and fell asleep without anything in his mouth. I wouldn't have believed this would happen just one night after our experience yesterday.

Here are some photos taken today:

he fell asleep sucking his thumb!

Shoghi has been moved to L's room while Max takes Sleep 101

Today we celebrated spring by going to opening day of the farmer's market!
Here's Laurie carrying Shoghi in the meitai.


  1. Oh i'm so so so glad tonight was easier. It sounds like Max may be getting the hang of the new plan. so cute with the thumb sucking!!
    I'm so glad you guys came for dinner! we really need to do it more often. Next time, your place ;) hahahaha but maybe for brunch or lunch ;)

  2. oh, sweet pictures. thank you. spring at the farmer's market, i can't wait! sweet Max, sleeping. can anything be better? kisses and hugs

  3. Hip hip hooray! How encouraging. I remember expecting that Jenna would be just the same as Ruby when it came to sleeping. Boy, was I ever in for a surprise. Ruby would go right to sleep without a peep and Jenna fusses every single time - she's also much harder to read, sleep signals-wise. Keep up the good work, Max!

  4. Oh my gosh - that's great!!! Congrats. I'm so glad for you!

  5. so glad to see things progressing in a good way. I can hardly wait to see you and your sweet boys :) (oh, and to meet your obviously cool sister too ;) )
