Planets and bedtime

Little Bitty has developed a keen interest in the planets recently... he has a Baby Galileo video that he likes to watch, and his brothers have an educational toy that gives facts and figures about the different planets, which he loves to listen to over and over. He probably has the mass of Jupiter and the temperature on Mars memorized by now, not to mention how many years it takes Neptune to orbit the sun and how much a 100 lb. person would weigh on Mercury!

We just happen to have a bedroom decorated with a space theme, complete with planets hanging from the ceiling and glow-in-the-dark stars. We did it for CB and BH when they were younger, b/c they liked planets too and well, we both always thought it would be cool to have a room with glow-in-the-dark stars when we were kids :).

Enter Mr. Bitty... the little man who hates to sleep alone because he likes to have someone next to him (and I mean cuddled up close, not just in the vicinity) in order to sleep. Well, now that he is into planets he's decided he's totally fine with sleeping in the "space" room all by himself. He seems to find it relaxing looking at the planets and naming them off (in his cute voice, took me a while to figure out what he was saying, but sure enough he's listing planets!) until he falls asleep.

Now if we could just get him to stay there all night... I keep waking up to find him cuddled up next to me in the morning.
