Okay so something weird is going on. The last two nights he's been waking up bawling his eyes out but won't stop whatever I do. He just kinda goes back to sleep as if he wasn't really awake. He seems to still be dreaming because he'll talk (last night he was yelling "I want that!" when there was clearly nothing there to be wanting) but I have no idea how to comfort him! He can't articulate what is going on, he says he remembers crying but he doesn't really know why. Last night it was once but the night before I ended up taking him to our bed after the third time I heard him crying in his sleep. Before that he had gone back to sleep once, and got out of bed and came to us once... any ideas suggustions? I mean, my big butt crawled up on the top bunk with him last night just to try to settle him down, and that's a feat let me tell you!
We just got him bunk beds which he loves, so he hasn't really been sleeping with us, but usually if he needs us he just comes and crawls in bed with us....
