Bed Time Routine
I did not realize how we have developed a specific bedtime routine for Alex until my parents watched him last Saturday night. After we change Alex into his pajamas, we all brush our teeth, and he reads a book or two. Alex does try to avoid bedtime, but we eventually get him back to his room. Usually I am holding Alex when he gets to turn off his light and say "ni-night" to Daddy, and then he shuts the door. (If one of us is not home, then Alex usually says ni-night to the dogs.) We rock for a few minutes and he whispers "bed" when he is ready to go to his bed. He has his "guys," a variety of stuffed animals, in his crib to keep him company.
