Free at Last, Free at Last!!!

We are so proud of out little man!!! As you know, we decided to cold-turkey wean Will from his sucky starting on Saturday. We had a chat with him and had him throw it in the garbage himself. This is what transpired.

Saturday nap-he SCREAMED for an hour and twenty minutes, slept for 20 minutes then screamed until I got him out of bed. He asked for it a couple times but we just distracted him and reminded him that he threw it away and it is gone and that he's a big boy now. Then when bedtime came he fell right to sleep and slept till 1am. Then he woke up and cried for it for about an hour and then fell asleep again for the rest of the night.

Sunday morning he asked for it a couple times, then at nap time he slept for an hour and then woke up crying for it. By the time bedtime came on Sunday, he really hadn't asked for it and ended up going to bed without asking for it and slept the night.

Monday and Today so far, he hasn't asked for it even once and slept through his naps and the whole night without incident.

That's it, we've done it! I imagine he'll ask for it a little later on, but so far he's done absolutely amazing!

Yeah William!!!
