|In the beginning, a cosleeper bassinet...|
|A little over a month later, getting used to his crib.|
Last night was the first night I looked at my son tucked into his crib, so cute and adorable and not anywhere near ready to fall asleep and thought, I can't do this. He started to squirm and wimper as I willed him to close his eyes, so I did what I kept telling myself not to do: I picked him up. I took him to our bed a few feet away, snuggled into my pillows next to his already-sleeping dad, and Daniel fell right to sleep. That's when I realized co-sleeping is what we're meant to do with our boy. He is that kid you read about that won't sleep without his parents close by. It was further evidenced by the nearly 2 hour-long nap he took today, first with me on the bed and then almost immediately on his dad's chest after he woke up in a sudden screaming fit. He hardly ever takes naps that long, never in his crib.
|Most middle of the night feedings end up with this...|
|But I mean, how adorable is this?!|
|Last night. Sigh...|
