This is the last week that Mari is going to be sleeping in her bassinette. I'm a little nervous, but at the same time, it'll be a good thing. Poor girl is barely fitting in there any more. At night when she is stirring, her little fists are thwacking against the walls, knocking down the pictures of Don and I that I tucked away in there. The only real thing preventing me from putting her in there is the fact that when her paci falls down, I can just reach over and tuck it back in, but if she's in her crib, it won't be that easy. Enter the wubbanub! One of my co-workers told me about it and I thought, what a wonderful idea! I ordered the one that is shown, as well as a penguin. I can't give my level of approval until they arrive from here. Once they get here, though, I'll keep you in the loop to see how they work for her.
Plus, I have a teensy bit of anxiety having her in another room. I don't know if I should start out having the crib in our bedroom and transitioning it on over to the nursery or just do the nursery. Right now it is in the nursery and she takes some naps in there occasionally. Maybe I'm the one that is paranoid that I'm not going to hear her at night when I'm sleeping. How was it for you guys? Did you set an alarm to get up in case you didn't hear your baby? Or was it all of a sudden you have "momma ears" in your sleep and you hear every noise?
Either way, I know she'll be a whole lot happier because she'll have more room. Anytime she's sleeping with us in the bed (more like napping when we nap), she'll stretch out her little arms and really relax.
Happy Cinco de Mayo! Be sure to have a margarita and chips and salsa!
