I had trouble sleeping last night. Alexandra slept inside the crib in her room, and for the first time since conception she wasn’t within arms reach of mommy. I’m proud of her growth and the hubby and I are well aware of how blessed we are to have such an amazing sleeper, but it seems like we’re at this point way too quickly. Sigh. I didn’t exactly feel ready for this transition, but I knew it was time. The discomfort will fade and I’ll eventually embrace the change, because what matters is that she knows I’m close and I know she’s safe. Besides, only a wall separates us, and like the grace and stealth of a gazelle I can spring into action whenever she needs me. 😉 Ahhh, the mom journey continues!
