Night 3 deemed a success

Last night, I put Jordan to bed around 8 and he cried a little but not too badly. He fell asleep rather quickly, and woke up a couple times crying but one of us just had to go comfort him (without picking him up) and maybe replace the paci or restart the seahorse and he went to sleep. He woke at 2:30 and 3:30 but i didn't nurse him. just replaced the paci and gave him a kiss and he went back to sleep. at 6:30, i woke up about to burst from not nursing through the night. He was still asleep, but woke when silly Mama had to peek in on him to make sure he was still breathing. So, I nursed him and he went back to sleep.
Hopefully this sleep business is working! I'm still trying to get him to take two good naps a day (10 a.m. and then sometime later around maybe 1 or 2, depending on how long he slept in the morning) and a steady bedtime that is currently hovering in the vicinity of 8 p.m.
I betcha we'll get him sleeping really well on a schedule and tooth No. 3 will disrupt everything! That's life, I guess.
For now, though, actually getting some sleep is pretty nice!
