The Crib

Now that our home study and profile are complete, a child could join our family at any time.  I bought a crib because I believe that "if you build it, they will come" (Field of Dreams)....the crib arrived Saturday night.....Adrien was so excited.....and Sunday morning we put it together....he asked when the baby was coming and I told him that we put it together for when his baby cousin comes to visit next weekend.  He was great with that....then today, we were playing hide and go seek.  He dived into the crib and got cozy in his crib hiding place proclaiming it "his favourite spot ever".  This from a child who refused to sleep in his own crib.  Tonight he asked to sleep in the crib....trying to call his bluff, we let him.  So after his stories he announced it was time for bed and climbed into the crib.  After about a half an hour, he got out....I tried to get him to get cozy in his bed until he started to get teary eyed.  When I asked him what was wrong, he stated he just wanted his train pillow.  With his pillow in hand, he climbed back into the crib and fell asleep......Really?????

Asleep in a crib for the first time in over almost 3 years!
