A Farewell to the Crib

The crib has been posted on Freecycle, the final step in Kellan's transition from baby to full fledged big boy. Well, ok, that's a bit dramatic, as he's still in diapers, nurses on demand, and has a vocabulary which largely consists of "puppo", "daddy", "eesh" (fish), "eez" (nursies), and a bunch of words that sound like "Da-uh". But still, he has spent three nights in his own room without any problems whatsoever. In fact, he has spent three nights in his own room and we've all had three glorious nights of sleep. The first two nights he woke around midnight to nurse, then again just before waking for the day near 6am. Last night, he woke at 1:30am to nurse and didn't wake again until nearly 7am. Its too soon to know if he's making a shift from two to one night nursings (dare I even imagine such a gift?), but twice is still monumentally better than the every hour or more that we were doing previously. Twice is luxury. Twice is wonderful. Please do not misunderstand me. One day I would love to have 8 hours consecutive sleep again, but for now, a whole night with only two interruptions will suit me just fine.
