Phew… about time Mommy

Sunday night, little BabyBird fell asleep but after a few hours woke up and refused to fall back asleep. In a last ditch effort, I decided to give the old Cry-It-Out a try and he bailed his little eyes and heart out for a good 20 minutes. My resolve in sticking with it dissolved with each sob and buckets of tears and finally went up and picked him out of his crib. The moment he was in my arms all of the crying stopped (hint #1 that he was perfectly fine and just wanted his Mommy to rock him back to sleep) but the funniest part was that after I picked him up, he let out a loud sigh of relief thinking to himself “Sheesh… finally you got me, took you long enough women!” I just about died from the cuteness. Then he let out a giggle and a smile. Seriously? You’ve-got-to-be-kidding-me-kid! He played me. Well done mister… well done.
