After our usual night time routine, I rocked him for a few minutes and then put him to bed in his crib as usual. He laid down but then immediately sat up. I braced myself for the clearly inevitable begging/screaming to pick him back up. But no. He didn't even acknowledge that I was still standing there. He crawled over to the blanket, balled it up and then laid on top of it and fell fast asleep.
Well that's a new one.
The next night, same thing. I lay him down practically asleep and he sits up, finds the blanket and then curls up with the blank squished under him. It's now happened every night this week.
So last night I decided to get this new night-night thing on video. And since I'm brilliant, I left the light on my phone which threw him off a bit. Crying/whimpering is not typically part of this sit-crawl-find blanket-sleep routine. But you get the gist.
Also, please disregard my creepy voice. And yes, I call him bubba. I can't help it. It just comes out.
