Intermission

August 19, 2010

I apologize, again, for the lapse in posts. We haven’t transitioned her yet to her own bed because we’re still trying to figure out the best way to do it. Andrew wants to put the twin bed next to ours and try to get her to sleep on it that way for awhile. Her little room doesn’t have a screen in the window or a ceiling fan, and we rely on the air-conditioning window unit in our bedroom to keep us cool at night. Not sure we can shell out a couple hundred bucks for another one. When the weather gets colder (which will happen sooner than I’d like), we’ll move the twin bed into her room. As I mentioned before, putting the twin bed next to our bed will cover the only heating vent in the room, so she definitely can be there once it’s cold.

Lately our nights have been pretty much the same. She’s falling asleep between 8:15 and 8:30, sleeping pretty well until sometime in the early morning, then nursing off and on until she wakes up somewhere between 7:15 and 8:00. The last two nights I’ve gotten to watch a whole movie without going in to cuddle her back to sleep. She’ll often make a short little cry sound, then fall right back asleep. It’s nice to be aware of her sleep patterns from this distance, rather than jumping in with a breast every time she makes a peep. I think this is probably a good lesson for any cosleeping parent to learn: wait a bit, give your baby some distance, and often they are still asleep and are just resettling themselves. Our intervention isn’t always necessary or helpful.

I’ll probably move the twin bed into our room today, then start PART 2 of this blog, starting over at night 1.
