It's been so long...
I apologize if this is a bit too much information... But as women we get it, and I know you'll understand. Charlie slept in his crib last night. For 5 months (exactly 5 months) I've been laying next to that bassinet listening to him breathe. Making sure he's breathing, peeking over the side to watch his tummy rise and fall. But I didn't want to get stuck. It's important that Charlie is in his crib, in his own room.
We hooked up the baby monitor (does the interference on those things freak anyone else out?) And I laid my head on his chest. And he held me all night. It's been so long since we slept like that. Usually we start out kinda-sorta-maybe close and it ends up the same... with him on his back and me way over on my side by the bassinet.
So.. I was awake most of the night just listening. But Charlie did so good, and I got out of bed feeling so close to the bf.
Did that happen for anyone else? Maybe not the exact thing.. but have any milestones brought you closer?
I'm trying to think of milestones that brought the man and I closer, the only thing that comes to mind is the kids getting old enough to sleep over at friends houses. Having a night alone can be really great.
