b.c.

before children (or child) i always said "they'll be in their own crib by 6 weeks!"

well, that came and went. james was gone and she got a little spoiled sleeping with me.

then it was "once she sleeps through the night for a week!" that came and went and then we were going to the women's retreat so she'd be back in her bassinet. blah, blah, blah.

finally i said "okay! 2 months. 2 months it is!" she hit that mark on thursday. it was a long week with james working crazy hours. i didn't want to be up all night and tired the next day.

so the next night i told james that it was time. (if it was up to him she would have been in there awhile ago) it was a friday night. he didn't have to work today so we could share the middle of the night wakeups that i was certain would happen.

how did it go?

i nursed her at 8. james rocked her and she was in her crib by 9. (meanwhile i sat and pouted about missing her in our room, all the while listening to them and the squeaky rocking chair on the monitor)

she woke up at 6:30am. i nursed her and put her back, and she slept until 9.

success!

i just hope tonight is just as good!

p.s. we are such bad parents. i read an article earlier this week about a 4 month old kidnapped from her crib years ago. i was all paranoid, and yet we went to bed with both doors unlocked! whoops!

like i said when we talked, i still lock the doors at night... one thing that has to be done...in my book, not sure why i am so paranoid about this?
give that adorable, cute, beautiful, little girl of yours a great big hug and kiss for nana:) missing her and you:)

i think it's going to take quite a bit more than 1 night of an unlocked door to qualify you as "bad parents". :)

love you.
