Countdown to Sleep Training

Thanks to Julie I can now post pictures on my blog and she inspired me to try out some of the other tools on the toolbar. So now I know how to link to a site too. I know it's only a click of a button but I never really paid attention to those before so this is exciting.
Here is a picture of my cutie-patutie showing off some of his teeth!! He has 6 of them in all. WOAH. That's a lot of teeth.
He loves to smile and laugh and is a very good-natured baby. He just doesn't like to sleep.
A lot of that is because of our current living situation and the fact that we sort of live in two places and are always going back and forth between them. So of course, "Donuts" can't get on a normal schedule. However, we hope to be HOME SWEET HOME at the end of the month and then the sleep-training can begin.
So, if you have any suggestions on how to teach a child to sleep (remember, he is 10 months old and knows how to pull himself up in his crib) - PLEASE let me know. Especially if you have TRIED and TRUE methods. And if you know of anything besides "cry-it out" that would be nice to hear too. Not because we won't try it but because it hasn't worked since he has learned to stand up. Or if you have some tips on how to get the Ferber method to work - please share!!! THANKS!!!!

hey so by the way, where did the nickname donuts come from?

My brother-in-law made it up when we were trying to figure out what to call Jonah (he has three names). Donuts is a combination of the three of them. D from David, ONA from Jonah, and TZ from Yitzchak. D ONA TZ or DONUTS. Does that make sense at all?
