last night...

we decided to put Piper in her crib last night. I originally thought maybe after the first of the year we would try it...but really kinda hoped to keep her in our room for a year or so....well....the past 3 weeks she had started this new thing of wanting to wake up like 6 or 7 times a night!!! really just to cuddle, because every time I would wake up and start to nurse her, she would fall right back to sleep...only to wake up about an hour later! Yesterday was her 4 month appointment, and I mention it to my pediatrician, she said she had the same issue with her little girl, and she suggested moving her to her room, because the fact that Piper can smell me and hear me makes her want to wake up more....it makes total since (i had even thought about that before she mentioned it) but I just wasn't ready for her to leave my side yet....but I was ready for some sleep! So last night I rocked and nursed her then laid her in her crib at 8pm, she was awake again by 9pm, I nursed her again while thinking this was going to be a LONG night, laid her back down and I didn't hear a peep until 2am!! then she slept again until 5:30am! At that point jake just brought her into bed with us and she slept for another couple of hours! Of course we will try again tonight :) before I laid her down last night I prayed for her safety, being in a new bed away from me just worried me a little bit, I prayed for her security, I didn't want her to feel alone being away from us, I wanted her to still feel warm and secure, and of course I prayed for sleep for all of us :)

You are braver than I am! Kyle's been suggesting that Ella start sleeping in her own room...I'm just not ready for her to be all the way on the other side of the house!

ohh i couldnt do it if she was all the way on the other side of the house, thankfully we have a super small house, and our rooms are right next to each other :)

I know the feeling. Kennedy has been in her room for about a month. She would just wake herself up in her pack n play next to our bed. I cried the first night she slept in her own bed. It was a big step. And of coure I was up all night checking on her. But she sleeps so much better in her own room. Every night before bed I feed her, and Aaron reads her a book. I rock a little bit and we pray over her. Then we put her to bed. Its hard but we all sleep better.
