Crib Training—
We started trying out Archer’s crib two nights ago.  The first night I made the mistake of trying to feed him once in the night when he woke, without trying to let him fall back asleep.  It was the wrong decision and resulted in him coming back into our bed! 

Last night was a miracle of sorts.  He slept from 8 pm to 715 am only waking up for about 20 mins total (twice).  It was amazing ! I had insomnia just thinking about how I couldn’t believe it!  

It’s a very bittersweet process for me.  I am already away from Archer for eight hours when I’m at work, and now for more than eight at night.  I already missing having him so close to me, but I know moving him to his crib is for the best.  He sleeps wayyyy better with long stretches whereas in bed with us he wakes every 1-2 hours .  

Also—his feed keep getting caught in the crib and we keep moving him.  I’m scared to use bumpers, even of the mesh variety.  What do you all use ?!

A note to my not-so-tiny-anymore avenger—

I remember when you were only a couple of months old and I was convinced that the only thing that could calm you was bouncing you up and down while humming the Adams family.  The angle at which you were propped up had to be juuuuust right, otherwise you were furious.  I was so convinced that you were the most difficult baby ever to exist.  I looked on enviously at those mothers who could take their babies to the grocery store while their babies napped away, or sat contently in their infant seat.  Why couldn’t you just be content? Why did it seem as if when yours eyes were open, your mouth had to be too (screaming of course)?  

But you know what is the most amazing thing, ever, in this whole world?  Your smiles, your giggles, and your belly laughs.  They fill each and every room you enter.  They’re like magic, I’m convinced they’re a cure all for the evil in this world.  And you know what makes me appreciate them even more?  The fact that your first few months seemed so miserable.  Now I can look back and say, yes I had such an emotional baby.  It was difficult, but man oh man were those tears worth these smiles.  

Please don’t ever change.  I hope that you laugh like this for your entire life.  I hope this world brings you the joy that you bring to those around you.  Thanks to you, my world is brighter, it’s purposeful.  All I ever wanted was purpose….

Breast is best? Honestly, whatever you can do for your child whether that be breastmilk, formula or both, whatever you can do as long as you give your best to your babe.

My vote: love is best ✌️💗

We spent yesterday night rearranging our room to squeeze in a king size bed !! We have only ever had a full size in any of my homes growing up so this feels ridiculously luxurious !
Of course our first night sleeping on it, archer has a leaky diaper and a stuffed up nose which meant neither mama not archer slept much 😬.
Hoping tonight is better !!

Hope everyone’s weekend has been fabulous !
