Do Cribs Induce Sleep???

Checking out the crib before bedtime

First night in the crib

The video monitor (Thanks Grandma & Grandpa S!)

Gavin is growing so fast that we decided it was time to move him out of the bassinet and into the crib in his nursery.  It was such a sad day for me, but I knew it had to be done.  The poor guy didn't have a lot of room in his little bassinet anymore.  The first night was tough for me, though.  I found it hard to sleep because I just kept staring at the video monitor on my nightstand (those are amazing by-the-way!).  I also woke up several times throughout the night to look at the monitor.  However, Gavin did great and must have been much more comfortable because he slept 9 hours the first two nights in his crib and almost 10 hours last night!  Matt actually had to wake him up this morning because my coworkers had a lovely breakfast for me at 8:00 a.m.  We had to get Gav up at 7:45 because he was still sleeping!  We might have to start waking him up in the morning if this is going to be a habit.  For those of you who are familiar with breastfeeding, you know that going 10 hours without nursing is not a great idea.  Although Matt and I got a good laugh this morning when I woke up looking like a porn star!  (But I have to say, it sure makes your waist look smaller when your boobs are that big!  Ha ha!)

The past few days have been great.  Gavin is over the fussiness (so it probably was due to my own anxiety) and is back to his usual, happy self.  Monday and Tuesday Grandma S came over to help us with some errands.  Here are some pictures from the past few days, you can tell I've worn him out:

Oh, I have a headache!

  1. Oh I LOVE all the pictures, but my favorite are the headache one and the booty shot!!!! His crib looks awesome. Aiden just moved into his big boy bed so I totally understand your anxiety right now. I wake up at every sound wondering if he is trying to climb out of the bed. Thanks for sharing the pics. Hope you have a blessed week.
