Separation Anxiety

That would be me. Well, not so bad, just a little.

Taylor slept in her crib last night for the first time. We've put her in there for a few naps, but I wasn't ready for her to be that far away from me yet. While we were on our trip she was sleeping so well in her bassinet that we decided we'd try her out in her crib soon after we got back. Last night was the night! She only got up twice. Once at about 12:30 and the second time around 4:15am, then she slept until 7. So it wasn't GREAT, but considering it was a different place to wake up to than she's used to, it wasn't too bad!

I did okay, I was still awake when she got up at 12:30, but when I heard her cry through the monitor at 4:15 my pulse raced a little. I bolted up and ran into her room to see if she was really awake or just crying in her sleep. She was definitely awake so I picked her up, fed her and rocked her until she fell back asleep. It was strange going back to our room knowing she's not in there. Kind of made me sad at the same time.

She's been asleep in there since 10:30 tonight, so we'll see how it goes this time. I'm still swaddling her as she wakes herself right back up if her arms are free. Swaddled she puts herself back to sleep pretty well unless she's hungry or needs a diaper change.

I'll report tomorrow and hopefully update with part 3 of our trip!

Oh Jen! Taylor is growing. On the other hand Orayyyyyy for Taylor!

For me was wierd when Delany finally spent the night on her bed. I felt that a huge part of me was taken away. She was sleeping pretty good but at the moment I was the one who stay awake checking on her. Up until today every time that I woke up in the middle of the night I always go to her room and check on her.
