Crossing Our Fingers
Margie slept in her bassinet last night until somewhere around 5 AM. Now this probably doesn't sound like a big deal to many but it is the first time since she was about two weeks old. See our little social butterfly does not like sleeping by herself or for that matter even being put down. Don't get me wrong if this is our biggest problem we face as new parents I will consider ourselves very lucky. I really don't mind holding our sweet baby every night. However, her head keeps getting bigger which hurts my arms. As we approach the 3 month mark I have been trying to be more proactive about putting her down. Last week she took her first "mommy free" nap for about an hour and a half. This week we are working on sleeping mommy free at night too. We are hoping that we can get her to sleep in her bassinet for a few weeks before starting sleep training in a few weeks. I think this will make sleeping in her crib by herself less shocking. Keep our family in your prayers as we make this transition.
