It's Been a While

I'm settling into the new routine of going to work.  I really miss spending the days with BB.  Hopefully with any luck I'll be pregnant soon.  BB is still nursing before bed and a couple of times in the night.  I just decided today that if my cycle hasn't started by the end of the month, I'm going to work on eliminating the middle of the night feedings.  I hate having to do this, but we need to get this baby thing moving.  Our babysitter is off the first week of July, so DH is taking the 29th and 30th off to spend with BB, and I'll be taking July 2nd and 3rd.  With DH off work, he can take over the duty of getting up with BB those nights, so he won't be expecting to nurse. 

BB is still sleeping in our room.  Whenever the topic comes up, so many people poo-poo at me.  Sorry folks, I'm doing what I think is best.  We don't get enough time together as it is, and I want him to feel as secure as possible.  If he's happy in his crib, that's where he sleeps.  If he is happier in bed with us, then that's where he is.  I feel like returning to work has gone against everything I believe about parenting this little boy, so I'm going with my gut on this issue.  When the time is right for him to move to his own room, we'll recognize it and take care of it. 


Writing from work feels really disjointed.  Maybe it's because I know I have a lot of work to get through and shouldn't be taking the time to do this.  Hopefully I'll get through the backlog that has been left for me, and get things caught up soon so I'm not in a panic the entire time I'm here.  And then perhaps I'll have time to write the occasional post.  I feel like I'm becoming one of those people who completely neglects their blog.

I think that I am jealous that your cycle hasn't come back yet! Mine reared her ugly head when C-Girl was 6 months old. I was hoping for a longer reprieve then that! I hope things are going well for you and fingers crossed for you that BN2 is just around the corner!

Nothing wrong with babes hanging out in bed if you are ok with it. My J-bird sleeps with me most nights. Starts out in her bed and then ends in mine. I don't see her all day...we like the closeness...who cares. : )

Hope you're doing well. Don't drop the blogging all together, I'd miss ya.

ML, I never thought I'd see the day where I actually WANTED my cycle to start! Well, not since high school anyway. LOL. But that was for the complete OPPOSITE reason. :) xo

Independent Chick, It's nice to hear from you! BB does the same thing as your Sweet Pea... in his bed until his first wake-up, and then he takes over our bed for the rest of the night. On the rare night that he does end up spending the night in his own crib, I miss him xo
