sleep training tips?

well ... we've been trying to get aidan to sleep through the night again. he used to ... and ever since the move he stopped. i think it coincided with him learning to crawl as well. regardless of the reason ... i'm tired (literally) of getting up every 3-4 hours when he used to sleep 8 hours straight.
i tried the crying it out method, but it just made me way too sad. i tried the "keep on laying him down" method (who knows what its called) but if i'm standing up, he seems to think he needs to stand up as well. so to get him to lay down, i've been laying down next to the crib. he'll lay down next to me and want to hold my hand. it works ... but sometimes i have to lay there from anywere from 20 mins to 1hr 30 mins. i hoping to get to a point where i can lay there for like 5, and once he's calm leave. but so far, it hasn't been working too well. i just can't keep nursing him or rocking him to sleep.
all you moms out there i need your advice on getting him to sleep. HELP! i cant keep working on no sleep.

he has a tooth!

so aidan has been drooling forver ... and everyone always asks me if he is teething ... to which i reply "no"! well today he was chewing on my finger and i can feel a tiny tip of a tooth poking through his gums. it's the bottom one on the left.
i tried getting a picture of it, but aidan is very stubborn (hmmm, i wonder where he gets that from) so instead i searched the internet and found a picture. just pretend that baby has aidan's eyes. hehe. as soon as i get a picture i'll post a real one. come to think of it that's why i haven't been posting. robby got me a new computer and i haven't transfered anything from my old one to the new one. and i hate posting without pictures, just words is boring to me. so hopefully new videos and pictures coming soon.
i've also been busy with church. my new ward finally gave me a calling, i'm the secretary in the relief society presidency. soo i've been going to lots of meetings.

aidan update

well, we had a doctor's appoitment yesterday. 7 months. crazy. he's growing so fast, and time is just flying by. he's now 28 inches long and weighs in at 20 lbs and 2 ounces.
the other major change is that we had to move his crib to the lowest setting. he learned how to throw himself over the side and out of the crib. so since robby had to take it apart to lower it, i had him take it apart and put it back together in a different room. aidan is no longer is the same room as us, he's now across the dining room and in his own room. i'm loving it.
