For the past two weeks I have been itching to get back into our bedroom and transition little man to the crib. I tried it a few times but it was not happening. Aiden was not ready! After doing tummy time 2 times a day for 3.5 weeks, I knew he was getting close! Baby AJ was getting to where he would roll from his stomach to his side. I had prayed a lot about doing the right thing at the right time for my son. I had a confidence sent from the Lord that Wednesday was THE DAY! I stuck to a semi-strict 3 hr schedule. Aiden took a 45 min early morning nap in his crib. I felt great about that! That's his normal for the swing. Next came the mid morning nap...that one did not go so well! He would sleep for 20-25 minutes then wake up screaming. Everytime I went into his room and picked him up and got him back to sleep (which only took 2-3 minutes). This went on for an hour! I was a little drained but knew I wanted to stick to it! His afternoon nap was a different story. It was a God Send!!! He napped for a solid 2 hours without me having to go in his room. The night went pretty well. We bathed him at 7:30, I fed him at 8:00 and put him down at 8:30. He woke up to eat at 12:30 am (which we were still up for), 3:30 am and 7:30 am! I know he didn't sleep through the night but it went a lot better than I expected! I honestly thought I was going to be up all night with him. Instead I got up once with him and snuggled with my Baby Daddy the rest of the night : )
I feel like I'm just now getting into my groove. I'm finally having dinner on the table when Forrest comes home. I'm finally getting dressed with teeth brushed by the time Forrest comes home rather than looking the a homeless milk cow at 6 o'clock. I can't imagine being in any other place in life than I am right now!
I love my Lord for blessing me such an amazing son and spouse!
I love my Husband for wanting me to stay home with our son!
I love my sweet son for being my pride and joy!
