Ten months ago, Jared and I sat on the floor of this room putting together crib pieces.
Seven months ago, we brought home a tiny new soul and introduced him to his very own room.
Three months ago, he started sleeping in it.
Those first four months of his sleepless little life were hard. I was stubborn. I would tell Jared, “I don’t think I’ll ever be ready for him to sleep in his own room. All the way across the living room. It might as well be a whole other planet!”
But alas! The kid has been successfully sleeping in his own room since December. And, I tell ya, that ‘whole other planet’ business is silly because I still hear every sneeze and hiccup. I guess it’s all part of the job. It’s a cute job.
