rowan is now in his own room. *SOB*WAIL*CRY*<br>
my little man has just sorta unceremoniuosly made the switch. sleeps through until his normal wake-up time of 7ish without a peep. it's weird...dave really misses him in bed...for the past 9months or so it's been just he and rowan in the bed (i was in the recliner during pg and for the past 3mos). but now it's just me and dave in the bed...which, i gotta admit, is bizarre. i'm not used to it yet. LOL dave doesn't feel comfortable with ava in the bed until she's a bit older (we waited until 6mos with rowan when he was very good at rolling over both ways, etc). and she has also been showing us that she prefers her own space to sleep. so she's in her moses basket next to us inside the co-sleeper.<br><br>
so...nobody's in our bed but us. ummm...*shuffles feet* it just feels ODD! i don't know what to do with all the space. LOL i'll get used to it eventually i'm sure.<br><br>
oh, and my back is KILLING me from sleeping in the flat bed. i also think we need to flip the mattress (memory foam) because it's so soft now and that doesn't help my back any. i just want the bed to be comfy again for me. right now it's sort of a torture chamber. LOL<br><br>
oh back to the kids...we're gonna set up ava's crib today i think...put it in our room and start getting her used to sleeping in there so it's not a huge shock when she doesn't fit in her basket anymore.<br><br>
so that's my novel.

Yeah, it is a bit odd and kind of lonely at first! We moved Amalie into her room (from a mattress in our room) about a month and a half ago. We all sleep better now but the first couple nights felt pretty weird.

WOW. I am so impressed. We are nowhere near having the bed to ourselves. And starting to slide backwards actually, in terms of progress...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

yeah i sort of assumed he'd be in our bed for a loooooooooooooooooong time. well, some ppl consider 3yrs a long time. i didn't. LOL and i also always assumed that we'd have both kids in our bed, and they'd overlap co-sleeping with us for several years, kwim?<br><br>
but instead of that happy family bed...nobody. ok i'm actually much sadder about this than i thought. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
i mean, i get that it's a move in a positive direction. i don't want to say the "right" one because i don't feel like it's as absolute as that. anyway, i understand that it's a good thing that he's ok with sleeping on his own. he still requires me to nurse him to sleep most nights so we still get that cuddle time. but something about this situation feels so empty and cold. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
