Yay! Connor has learned how to give kisses. Yesterday I keep asking him "Can I have a kiss" every time I would kiss him. Within 10 minutes of working with him on this he was giving me kisses. CRAZY!!!! The boy is catching onto things so quickly. I am sooooo excited and think it is the cutest thing that I keep asking him if I can have a kiss. He is going to get so sick of me asking...LOL
Well we decided to let Connor offically sleep in a big boy bed last night. We took the mattress out and laid it on the floor for him. We figured since he has been seizure free for almost 2 years now is a better time then ever. Of course he had to check out his new found freedoom and roam around the room. After a few minutes of doing that I laid him down and rubbed his back. Then I told him night night and proceeded to close the door. The second I heard his foot hit the floor I went back into his room and laid him back down in bed(did that for 1 1/2 hrs). Every time he saw me open the door he would run back to the bed and pretend like he was sleeping.We were not successful the first night, but tonight he is SLEEPING in the big boy bed! We let him run around the room and check things out. Finally when he got tired I laid him in his bed, rubbed his back (which he insisted on showing me), and said night night. After about an hour of putting him back in the bed he FINALLY fell asleep. Wooo hoo, no more lugging him in and out of the Safety Bed!
Connor did AWESOME last night! When I went to check on him in the middle of the night he was still sound asleep. He woke up at 6:30 this morning and was ready to start his day. Today he went straight to his bed for naptime and was out within 15 minutes. Think he''s starting to get the hang of this whole sleeping in a big boy bed :).
