He is our first child.
He is the first grandson on both sides.
He is the first great-grandson on one side.
He is always being held, cuddled with, and played with.
Not to mention, for the past three and a half weeks, he has been sleeping in our bed.
To begin the explanation for this, Austin has not had to go to his early-morning shifts at UPS since Ryker has been born. He gets FMLA through this wonderful company.
So, to ease my nighttime worries of SIDS, Austin has been staying up until the wee-hours of the morning making sure Ryker is sleeping peacefully. This allows me to get some sleep of my own.
Austin studies, reads, and works on homework.
Is he not the best husband in the world for doing this???
Anyways, during these wee-hours of the night/morning, Ryker sleeps in our bed.
This has been a terribly terrible mistake.
Don't get me wrong, we absolutely love having our son so close to us.
Snuggling is the best with our little guy!
But, Ryker will not sleep in his crib when it is time for Daddy to go to sleep.
He cries and cries and cries some more until we move him back to our big bed.
So, this leaves me up for the rest of the early morning.
This habit needs to end so he won't be wanting to sleep in our bed forever! :]
Doesn't he look too comfortable?
No more sleeping in bed next to Mommy while she is doing her homework during the day.
[Even though she loves it sooo much.]
We all learn from our mistakes, right? Right.
Tonight, he is sleeping in his bed.
