When Lizze and I went to bed tonight, this is what greeted us. 💙
I knew Emmett was there already because I sang him to sleep, after he tried for almost two hours to go to sleep on his own.
When he came down stairs, we were surprised because he’d been up there for a couple hours and we figured he’d fallen asleep because we hadn’t heard from him.
I walked him back upstairs and he curled up next to me in our bed. We played some music and I sang poorly to him.
He was asleep within a few minutes.
I wish I knew what was going on with him but he’s just having the hardest time falling asleep in his bed.
On the positive side, he fell asleep and is currently asleep in his own bed.
It’s nice being able to provide comfort to him or any of the boys for that matter. So much of their lives is difficult for them and there isn’t much I can do to ease that burden.
Being able to snuggle Emmett and help him fall asleep is something that feels really good.
We will continue working with him to help him through this phase but until we overcome this, there are bigger things than Emmett needing to snuggle in order to fall asleep, to worry about.
