Small Steps!

We finally decided that it was time for Abigail to begin sleeping in her own room! She honestly has done so well that we didn't have any need to move her. She's always slept like an angel, all night long, since she was born in her bassinet, in our room. We have bath, dinner, swaddle, then Mommy rocks and puts her to bed.

I've been noticing that she's getting super fussy and throwing huge fits, not wanting to eat, etc. She's NEVER like this so I finally figured out that she was getting more tired earlier and ready for bed. Normally, I try to get all of my stuff done and myself ready for bed when she was ready to go to sleep. However, it's always a battle and I end up putting her down later than I'd like. I finally told Bryan that it was time, so we decided to move her into her room on Sunday, Sept. 30th! She did great with the exception of waking up at 3:30 am b/c she had peed through her pj's and swaddle. I ended up getting up, changing her, and feeding her since she was already up. For some reason it took me longer to put her back down. She would be completely out and then wake up when I put her in her bassinet. Finally, I was able to crawl back in bed at 5:00. Yeah, I think that was her retaliation for us putting her in her own room! Haha!

I was really sad the first night and kept looking at the monitor checking on her. I'm not ashamed to admit that I cried! I told Bryan that I just missed her! Bryan told me that we could put her back in our room if I wanted, but I said no. I was just being selfish wanting her in there by me. I knew the best thing was putting her in her room so she could go to bed early and get more sleep. I will admit though that it's nice not having to worry about waking her up! :)

I'm happy to report that last night was her second night in her room and she did awesome! Mommy did a lot better too!

This is a picture of her still snoozing away while Mommy was getting ready this morning. I love this sweet girl! Time, slow down.
