The sleep-training is coming along. I haven't been perfect; sometimes he goes down with the paci, and sometimes he gets nursed if he's too upset. But it seem to be helping: two nights ago he didn't wake up until 2 am, and last night he didn't wake up until 4 am.
It's weird when you're inside a situation that feels so confusing and tangled, and you just know from the outside it's a minor "whatever" and seems really clear. And yet you still can't figure out the clear path!
Hopefully my path, as twisty and circular as it is, is still heading towards clarity (and a good night's sleep for both of us).
