Kim and I started using "The Ferber Method" on Thursday to help Ian learn to fall asleep unassisted. Many of you know that prior to our using the steps outlined in this book, Kim and I would swaddle Ian anytime he would sleep (including naps). Things are going pretty well so far.
"My arms are free!" Ian now sleeps in a "sleep sack" like this one at night but does not use one of these for naps during the day. It is interesting: we have found Ian sleeping on his stomach about as often as we have found him sleeping on his back or sides since starting this new approach on Thursday.

Kim and I enjoy giving each other gifts throughout the Advent season. My December 6th gift to Kim was a meal. I offered to fix her any dish from a cookbook, and she selected a chicken and pasta meal that also used fresh mushrooms and garlic. It actually turned out! Kim has already given me the gifts of breakfast in bed and several dozen homemade chocolate chip cookies. Fun times!
