Starting to Sleep Alone

Ezra is almost 2 months old...and he is starting to sleep by himself now.  I have been co-sleeping with him up until now, because it is much easier on me.  However, he has started to sleep almost all night, so I thought it was probably time to get him used to sleeping on his own.  So, last night Jesse brought his crib into our bedroom.  I still like having his close by.  I'm not quite ready to put him in a different room just yet.  Anyway, he slept in his crib in my bedroom last night and he did pretty well!  He was able to sleep from 10:30 until around 4.  I fed and changed him, and put him back into the crib.  After that, he went right back to sleep until around 6:30.  At that point, he seemed like he was having a little gas pain, so I kept him in the bed with me until we woke up at 8:15.  Overall, I was very happy with his ability to sleep in his bed all alone.   Tonight, we will try again.   He actually seems to sleep better when I put him to bed around 9:30.  I think I will try that this evening.

Ezra's First Fourth

My littlest boy is just the sweetest thing! Not that Jonah wasn't sweet (and maybe it was just that I'm a better mommy now that I've had some practice, I don't know) but my little Ezra is just sweet as sugar! He is a cuddly little sack of potatoes!  He coos and his little eyes just light up! It is very easy for me to make him smile! I'm loving my time with him.  I'm certain that I will look back on this summer and my heart will be full of sweet memories of time with my newborn AND my two year old.  He's pretty sweet too...when he wants to be!
