OK. Almost two months later! TONIGHT is the night.

Here we go with the crib again. As mentioned in these posts:
Tonight's the night - March 4
Wasn't last night. Won't be tonight - March 5
The crib plans are completely derailed - March 6
I can't believe it's been that long since the last planned attempt!!

We're going to try to get Zach sleeping (continuously!) in his crib tonight (and tomorrow night and probably the next night). Jean-Paul is doing all the hard work. It's suggested the non-main caregiver (i.e. Mommy) be the one to do the pick-up/put-down method. It's also wise only one person does the deed. If you change the person part way through it's apparently like starting over.

I did this with Zach when he was 1 1/2 months old and it took an hour and a half. He was fine from that point on. Now that he's one - and way more aware of things - it's NOT going to be that easy. I really feel for Jean-Paul.

Unfortunately we don't have the benefit of having Alexandria elsewhere this time. Alexandria and I are setting up camp in the playroom. At least we'll be farther from the crying.... I'll still be able to hear it - and will probably have silent tears streaming down my face....
