Charlee is sleeping in her crib.
You guys, this is big news around here. For seven plus months, I have absolutely no downtime, as I’ve either been working, or my baby has been literally on me. She’s a happy little girl. But she’s not content to be anywhere else but physically touching me. She wants to be held, and so I’ve held her. She naps with me and cosleeps with us through the night. It’s been a magical time, cosleeping. I’ve loved it.
But, recently I’ve felt that she’s big enough to sleep in her own little bed. Also, once she becomes more and more mobile, sleeping in our bed won’t be so safe.
So this is day four of charlee sleeping in her beautiful crib that my parents bought her, and it’s actually happening.
I miss her and am relishing the ability to take my time as I brush my teeth at once. Heck, I just went crazy and took a whole shower.
Nighttime is becoming a time that belongs to solely me again, and that’s a bit of a wonder around these parts.
Plus, I get to see TJ. We cuddle and stuff.
It’s kind of amazing.
Charlee will most likely come into our bed sometime during the night, but these evening hours are new and they are good.
