Star light, Star bright....

So, ever since Wyatt was born Aaron has been waking up in the middle of the night and coming into bed with us. Since we are always so exhausted we either 1. didn't care and go right back to sleep or 2. so asleep that we didn't even know he came in. Well, one week ago yesterday we decided that this has got to stop. So anytime he came out of his room before he fell asleep we'd redirect him back in. We did this about 100 times a night until he fell asleep. When he did wake up and walked into our room we'd put him back in his bed. There were some tantrums at 1:30 am. Then we went to Seattle and all that went out the window. We came back into town on Wednesday night. Did that whole process, but Charlie and I went downstairs before Aaron fell asleep. We heard his thumping around, but nothing abnormal. At 9:30pm we decided to go to bed and went up stairs to our room and this is what we found......... He had made a fort out of pillows on our bed and fell asleep. We still put him in his bed and guess what? He slept all the way til 7:00am in his bed. It was the best night sleep in a long time. And, he's been doing it still. Someone once said to me that consistancy works, but takes patience. I now believe them! It does take lots and lots of patience!! I just thought I would share this story to everyone who knows that patience is definately a virtue!!!
