We've Kicked Her Out!

A few nights ago we, by "we" I really mean "I", decided it was time to kick Zoe, out 8 month old, out of our room. Even though she still wasn't sleeping through the night I knew neither Josh nor I could continue on in a harmonious manner without proper sleep. So Josh agreed and we did it! The first two nights she slept in a pack and play in the office. It was amazing! We got to sleep! We both woke up in better moods then we had been in in months! Zoe's second night in the office was still great although she woke up once screaming. After giving her a bottle and cuddling with her for a few minutes I was able to lay her back down and the rest of the night was peaceful. Over New Years weekend we went ahead and moved her crib into Izzy's room along with her stack of drawers. All evidence of "baby" has been cleared from our room. It's finally OURS again. We are sleeping so much better now and as for Zoe's waking up between 2 and 6 times a night, she has only woken up once since the move. That was last night and it was only because her little legs were caught between the gaps of the crib. Izzy loves having her little sister in her room with her so much that we had to make sure she could see Zoe from her bed. I pray this sleeping arrangement stays this harmonious.

  2. That's great! Hopefully soon she'll slep all the way through and you can get some really good sleep again.
