cry it out spencer!

little spencer, spencer, spencer... mommy had every intention of letting you cry it out as soon as you turned 4 months old... even advised by your pediatrician.. but daddy was away.. and cio is daddy's job! then when he got back.. you got sick.. and then we started solids... and then mommy started to wean you... and you still had to be swaddled.. and mommy was worried that there were other issues preventing you from sleeping well... so mommy thought she'd hold out and suck it up for a coupla more weeks. alas, your multiple multiple night wakings.. inability to sleep for more than a couple of hours at a time.. and difficulty going down at night really began to wear mommy out. finally, mommy had enough. daddy sent mommy out to target tonight. and i came back to a silent house!!! apparently, daddy put you down in the crib, sans swaddle, turned on the mobile and left. you cried for a full 10 minutes.. then took a short rest... then after another 2-3 minutes of crying, daddy came up to soothe you and gave you your pacifier.. you turned your head and went to sleep. done! we'll see how the rest of the night goes.. but mommy is finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.. and getting ready for a whole new world!
