We finally took the plunge. It was a night that I'd been dreading pretty much since deciding that the boys would share a room back when I was pregnant. We had imagined that we'd wait until Wyatt was sleeping through the night before we moved him from our room. A full night sleep still seems very far away and he is just too big for the co sleeper, so we had to do something.
Wyatt slept for the first time in his crib on Saturday night. We wanted the first night to be on a weekend when we had no plans, just in case we had a rough transition with little sleep. But we've had no problem...we're all getting the same amount of sleep as we were when Wyatt was in our room. He does still wake up twice during the night, but Jack doesn't even seem to notice and sleeps right through the wimpers and cries, and me coming and going from the room. We really talked it up to Jack over the past couple of months, preparing him for Wyatt's move into his room, and he's adjusted so well. He even woke up one morning after Wyatt was up and out of the crib and came to our room crying, so upset that Wyatt wasn't in his bed. I think he's really proud to have his little brother in his room. I know that we are bound to have some rough nights, but I am just so relieved that for now, it's working out.
I thought this would be a good time to share some pictures I took of the boys' room a few weeks ago. (I love saying, the boys!)
