He's in his bed again!!

Well, after his first night in his bed, he reverted to his crib. I didn't want to push him so I let him in his crib. But tonight, I set up the mattress in his bed again and I let him tuck me in. Then he grabbed a book, cuddled up next to me and said "Geen Ham" (obviously, "Green Eggs and Ham"). So we read the book, which he loves because it involves a train and he was happy. I gave him his bottle and headed to the living room, and about 15 minutes later he came out of his room, rubbing his sleepy little eyes looking like a kid in a commercial. I explained to him that he had to go back to bed to go to sleep and he started crying, saying "No bed! No bed! Mama Up!" and cuddled up on my lap. I let him for a couple of minutes, then told him that even if he just played quietly in his room, he had to go back in there and go to bed. He wasn't going on his own, so I put him down, took his hand and led him back to bed. He was a bit upset but got settled in with no problems and fell asleep quite quickly. After about 30 minutes I was sure enough that he was asleep that I was dancing around the house singing "He's asleep in the big boy bed! I'm such a good mommy!". lol
He also got a haircut today. He was such an angel! He sat in the chair all by himself and didn't fuss at all, even when they brought out the buzzer. Yes, the buzzer. All his beautiful little curls are gone and he has a haircut just like Daddy, complete with the little wave in the front! We were originally going to just get it trimmed, but he was being so good in the chair, and Craig pointed out that the shorter we cut it the less often we have to do it! :-) He looks like such a big boy now - all this growing up in such a short time! I can't handle it!
