Rylan's new bed update
Written on December 11, 2006 by Kevin.
It has been a few weeks now since we first introduced Rylan to his new bed. We have had a near perfect experience with it so far.
As mentioned in the past, Rylan while still sleeping in the crib was able to be rocked for a short while and then laid in. He would then get himself to sleep on his own. With the new bed however, this was a big change which has required more time with us. We now can spend anywhere from 5 minutes to 30 minutes helping Rylan get to a point where he is either passed out or tired enough that he can get himself to sleep.
One experience that we still laugh about is that one night I woke up randomly and saw Rylan crawling back into bed. There were definite signs throughout the room that he had been playing with some of his toys. Before and after this event, we had never seen it happen. We wonder how often this happens and we just don't notice it.
Mornings are always a surprise with Rylan as he likes to crawl out of bed and begin playing with some of the toys we have for him. One of his favorite morning activities is to wake my wife up by poking her nose.
We definitely are glad that Rylan has transitioned so well. I think the next big task to tackle would be potty training which is probably not as far off as we would think as he amazes us with new skills everyday.
