Y'all. This is serious. Monumental. Incredible. Delightful. Successful. And Satisfying.
My baby slept in HER room last night. for six hours straight. and didn't nurse from 8:30-5am.
This is the start of a new chapter in the Sayre family.
But it's fitting. She'll be one in just a couple of days, and will be walking very soon too.....she's growing up and getting more independent already in so many ways.
Yesterday, at a brunch, she was scooped up by some of the children and whisked away to play, and she LOVED it. Not long ago, she would have had a hissy at being carried away from me.
I might note that we transitioned her gradually, and while at first she wasn't happy about the transition, I knew she wasn't struck with anxiety either....and it worked really well for both of us.
Also, since I haven't slept six hours straight in I don't know when, after he first waking, I was rip-roaring-ready to face the day, except that it was 3am. : )
