Scary nights

Leo in his big boy bed

So Monday night we got my monkey a new "big boy" bed. And he was so excited! And we put the baby gate in the hallway so he couldn't escape. First night went off without a hitch. He didn't get up all night long. He slept in his bed and he was so proud of himself. Second night...not so well. I put him to bed about 8:45 and I went to sleep around 10. What felt like hours later I heard Leo screaming his hed off. The hubby went and got him (I don't know if he had still been awake or if the screaming woke him up). It turned out it was only midnight but felt much later! Anyways...I laid in bed for a little bit and he just kept crying. I finally went into his room to see what was up. I still don't know what was wrong with him but even after we brought him into our room (which normally calms him down quickly) he continued to cry. I even fell back asleep and woke up not much later to him laying down with his eyes closed crying. I don't know if he was having like a night terror or what, but he was pretty much asleep. I tried to rub his back and he went all exorcist on me telling me to stop. So weird. So we will try again with the big boy bed tonight and hopefully it goes much better. If anyone has suggestions or ideas as to what might have been causing that, let me know, cause I was more than just a little freaked out!
