The past week or 2 Jayden has been waking up about 4:30 every morning, and won't go back to sleep. We've rocked him and every time we stand up to go take him back to his crib he just says "NO" in this sweet little "Please don't make me go back there" voice, but he doesn't open his eyes. I left him in there to cry himself back to sleep, but after he was quiet I went in to check on him and he was wide awake just sitting there in his crib. So Chris has been sleeping with him on the couch the past week and we finally decided that we just couldn't all survive like this and he needs to relearn how to sleep all night. So 2 nights ago when he woke up at 3:30 Chris just went in and rubbed his back, but never took him out of his crib. He only cried for 5 minutes before he was out. Weird, I know. So last night we were going to do the same thing. But Jayden woke up at 10 and this time we learned why he is waking up. We can hear the train very faintly when it goes by. We aren't really close, but if the house is quiet we can hear it. But it's not the train that wakes him up. Our house has started creaking in the floor by his room. (Even rocking in the rocking chair in the living room will make it creak!) When the train goes by it makes it creak. And it is extremely loud. The poor little guy has been waking up scared out of his mind and can't fall back asleep. When Chris went and got him last night Jayden's back was facing the door and he was looking to the corner where the boards creak. Because he was crying he didn't hear Chris and when he turned around and saw Chris he just screamed. He was so scared. So needless to say all 4 of us slept in our bed for a few hours last night. It didn't go over so well. So once the kids were asleep they moved to their own beds. We are trying to come up with a solution. Either us trading Jayden rooms or just moving his crib in our room too. Wouldn't that be fun. But one child not sleeping through the night is enough for us to deal with.
