comment 2 year old still does not (and has never) slept through the night
(cont) He gets up anytime from 6 if his diaper leaks, to 7 if not. He tends to wake up a little earlier if he has had a better night, a little later (7:30) if it's been particularly bad. We are in fact in the middle of potty training. Haven't tried reducing liquids yet. Thanks for the suggestions.

Ohh, I like the book idea. A lot. My son loves books in general, so I think a custom book is something he will not only love, but may help us as well. We've tried altering the bedtime a little. There were definitly a few situations when he was younger where putting him to bed earlier would improve the situation. We've tried earlier a few times recently because we were so tired. Not much luck. We tried later a couple of times, mainly as a function of say getting home from dinner late. He tends to sleep worse those nights. Right now, bedtime is 7:45.

This totally sounds like our situation. The pacifiers, while did seem to work in the short run, definitely did not in the long run. As for the humidity, we live in a very humid location, though admittedly the AC takes some of that out. Maybe bringing in the humidifier will help. Thanks for the idea.

You're right - I have no doubt this is a behavioral problem (on both the part of our son, and us). I think we'll try and fit the pacifier weaning into our plan, though I think it will take a while and in the meantime we can try some of the other ideas as well.
