You slept in your crib, in your room last night, all night, for the first time!! Needless to say, I spent half the night glued to a fancy 2 x 2 inch LCD video screen, listening to the crackles of air waves (that picked up the baby next door, incidentally) and trying to ignore the sound of your dad growling at me to turn off the bright glow of the monitor.
You have been sleeping soundly at the foot of our bed in a bassinet since you were born, but it was time to give us both some independence. We are very proud of you and are patting ourselves on the backs too, however, we felt terrible this morning when we woke up to you wailing having apparently both incorporated your crying into our respective dreams, and our fancy video monitor turned off. Oops! Sadly, it won’t be the last time we let you down, but we’ll always be right down the hall from you, buddy.
The best is yet to be.
