Amazing Bed News

I have been so overwhelmed lately (in a good way by my parents' visit and Thanksgiving and in a bad way by this ridiculous test results and tissue sample saga) that I have not written about the Big News in our bedroom.

Get your minds out of the gutter!

I will write more about this, but the news is: Captain Adorable is sleeping in his own bed. The crib we bought is a convertible (converts to a toddler bed and eventually to a full bed) and we moved all the furniture around and put the crib (configured as a toddler bed) almost next to our bed (the foot of his bed is right up against my night stand). He decided one day to start taking naps in there and that worked out great. Then one night he decided to go to sleep in there. So far he has ended up in the big bed (where he is absolutely welcome) every night, but he is sleeping in his own bed for longer and longer stretches. Last night he did not come to our bed till 5:00 or so!

I have been rather surprised by how easy this transition has been so far! I've even been a bit sad about it since I love co-sleeping so much. But Captain Adorable is confident and independent and has choosen to sleep on his own and that's wonderful. I am proud of him. But with his bed in our room, we still get plenty of snuggles, especially in the morning!

Don't you love it when they do things on their own time table? Sounds great mama! :)
