The last few nights we have heard a steady rhythm of thumping coming from the boys’ room. No one was crying or fussing, just a continuous sound. I assumed that it was one of the boys kicking his mattress. Cody went in an checked only to find Parker had turned 90 degrees in his crib and was kicking the button on his soother to turn it on and off.
I’m used to Nicholas turning his soother on by simply reaching up and pushing the button. It’s been wonderful! Instead of him freaking out at when he wakes up, he turns it on and “talks” to it. Parker, it seems, is not content to talk to his soother. Instead he likes to turn it on and off over and over again using the two footed slam. As long as he doesn’t wake his brothers, I’m happy he found a way to put himself back to sleep in the middle of the night. I tried to get some video of him doing it this afternoon, but he stopped and became interested in me holding the camera.
