Sleeping Arrangements

So we are working on new sleeping arrangements this week. Chloe has moved into her own room. Tuesday was the first night for this move. It worked out ok. We had a rough night leading up to bedtime though. Chloe cried quite a bit but she wasn't in a good mood most of the day so I think that was the cause. I got her to sleep around 11:00 or 11:30 and she slept in her own room the rest of the night. Kristen got home and could turn lights on and shower without worrying about waking her up. It was so nice to not have to tip-toe around.

Last night she did good too. We had a better evening. We had our bath, story and bottle and fell asleep about 10pm. I held her and rocked her for about 20 minutes to try to break a pattern I have been seeing. She had been falling asleep and waking up consistently 20 - 30 minutes later, eating another ounce or so of milk and falling asleep again for the rest of the night. Holding her got her past that so maybe that is what we are going to try again tonight.

Its a big step for us as a family so I thought I would share with you all. As much as it makes me happy that she is in her own room/crib it makes me sad that she is big enough to be moved away. What's next, college?
