I see progress! My Andy was the same way. I remember sitting and waiting for him to stop crying while my heart was breaking too!

You're a little nicer to your husband than I was . . . I waited until 6 or 7 months because I couldn't stand letting them cry when they were younger. :o( Each one is so different though -- my first cried not a bit, my second a loooonngg time those first days, and my third 30 min. on the longest day. Sounds like P is already getting the idea that crib time means sleepy time! Hope it continues going well for you -- as my sister reminded me, "In a month, he will have absolutely NO memory of this!"

Wow, that sounds like Peanut is doing well. I'll keep fingers crossed that this is the start of a really great sleeping routine!
