The Davis' need sleep!

I know I am way behind and I promise to post pics of our recent outings and such soon but wanted to post about a little dilemma we are having at our house lately. Our little monster is like his mommy in the fact that sleep doesn't come easy. In the past, every once in a while around 3 or 4 he would come and get in bed with us. It was seriously like once or twice a month. Lately it has been nearly every night. Luckily for me, since I am basically surrounded by pillows to try and make my pregnant self comfortable- Kaleb always ends up literally on top of Bryson. So we decided we needed to start taking him back to his own bed so Bryson could get some sleep. But since we started taking him back it has gotten worse- we are taking him back like every hour.

Last night was the worst. Kaleb already wakes up around 5:30-6:30 so with daylight savings in play it is now around 4:30. He came in around 2 last night and laid on top of Bryson so Bryson brought him back to bed. Then around 3:30 I got up for one of many nightly bathroom trips and stepped on him. He had brought his own pillow and blanket and laid down on the floor next to the bed. So I took him back to his room and laid with him. He was wide awake at this point so for an hour and a half I fought him to go back to bed and he never did. I must have drifted off because I woke up at 5:00 and he was gone. He was up hanging out with Bryson while he was getting ready for work! And we were up from there on out!

I don't know what to do about it! I really wouldn't mind him sleeping with us besides Brys doesn't sleep well and he wakes up when Bryson's alarm goes off @ 5:00am. Plus when the new baby is finally here- I don't want him to wake up everytime with the new baby as well.

How do you get a 2 yr old to stay in his own bed???
