Olivia's story

It was really good to know that we are on the right track with the aware parenting philosophy and reassuring to know that we should just continue to do what we're doing and always trust our instincts. 

After reading parts of the book yesterday (The Aware Baby) ....when he started getting grizzly, i held him and let him cry and he calmly fell into a deep and relaxed sleep in my arms afterwards.  I have been holding him again today and letting him cry in my arms.  I think it is absolutely amazing! it is such an incredible feeling when he gazes up at me after his cry looking so calm and relaxed just before he falls asleep...he has been smiling a bit at that time too - I feel so content that he is content.
