Houston...we have a problem

A problem is brewing but not quite yet a full fledged problem.  Jax has never been a great sleeper but he is cutting 5 teeth at the moment and he was sick last week.  So the past week he has been waking up inthe middle of the night and not wanting to go back to sleep.  We've gotta go to work and we can't stay up for hours every night. So we have taken him into our bed and he usually falls right to sleep pretty quickly.  Well, now, that's where he wants to sleep every night.  In between us.  Thank goodness we have a king size bed.  I know it was kinda stupid or naive of us to let him in there in the first place, but when he doesn't want to sleep in his bed, he does not let up.  He screams and screams and stands up until we take him out.  We try to soothe him or lay him back down but he gets right back up ans screams some more.  We've tried to just let him cry it out and he will cry until he makes himself so upset that he can't settle himself back down.  So we take him into our bed. 

Well, what do we do now?  He is so content to sleep with us and be close to us.  We are all sleeping better and it is sweet sleeping next to my little baby but I don't want him to get too comfortable and sleep in there forever.  I'm conflicted as to what to do.  Do we just ride this out and see how it goes or kick him to the curb now?
