I Have Survived!!!!!

After 9 months, 1 week and 1 night of sleeping in the same room as Johnathan, I decided to take the plunge and, yes, wait for it...let him sleep in his own room, alone!!! The first step toward this goal happened months ago when we moved Johnathan out of our room into his...and then we moved into his room! Haha! I just wasn't quite ready to "let go" back then, and that was about 5 months ago! Last night though, as decided by Aaron, we "moved" back into our room and let Johnathan stay in his. I wasn't sure I could last the whole night away from him, and luckily I didn't have to since he still woke up to nurse 3 times...yes, he still loves his nighttime nursing! I did however go back into my own room after each of our little rendezvous, which surprised even me. The switch wasn't quite as bad as I thought it would be, but I do have to admit that when he woke up for good this morning, I sure was happy to walk into his room and see his sweet little smiling face. It was like Christmas morning all over again!

For those of you who know me well, you know what a big step this was for me. So be proud of me...I survived!!! Now we just have to see if I can make it tonight as well! I have a good feeling that I'm going to make it! *wink*

Hey, I was wondering when I was supposed to let Brylee go to her own room! I guess there is no real time...just depends on what the mom wants! I know how you feel, I would be sad!
