I miss Ayla so much! You might be wondering where a four month old goes to make her mother miss her so much it aches a little. Well I will tell you they don't have to go far. Up until last week Ayla was still sleeping about a foot away from me in a little moses basket. She was an arms reach away and I liked it! To be honest I also didn't mind if she fell asleep in bed curled up next to me. I cherished every moment and even if I wasn't sleeping well it didn't matter she was happy and so was I. But David was ready for us to have our room back and even the pediatrician told me to get her in the crib now before it becomes to late and life becomes hard to make changes. So I did it she is in her crib and I miss her! But...she doesn't miss me! :( She is sleeping fine and in fact can be placed in the crib wide awake and calmly watch her mobile and suck on her thumb and fall asleep. I thought she might fuss I thought there would be a few nights where I would have to go in and get her and rock her back to sleep but nope she sleeps soundly. I know I shouldn't complain I am super lucky to have a four month old sleeping all night but I wasn't expecting it.
Regan was in the crib after a week, this really means she was in her crib for about three hours before I had to go in and feed her and fall asleep with her in the rocker. I had a kink in my neck for about 10 months and I would have enjoyed that kink a lot more if I knew how quickly she would grow up. Ayla and Regan share a room so I was going to keep her in my room until she was sleeping well so she wouldn't wake Regan and I thought I would have her for awhile. But then she was sleeping all night at two months! I know fantastic right? But what? Just two months? I wasn't having it. And then the pediatrician told me she should go, David was ready for her to go and then I saw this....
Yes those are her feet. :( She is long and well has just out grown the moses basket.
but isn't she cute? All though she is looking at me like yes mom it is time for me to move on, I won't be far just a few a steps away, please mom I need more space!
So there it is my baby is growing up and this is only the first of many transitions that I am sure will be harder on me then her.
