Growing Up


This week Ben has started putting himself to sleep. Monday, I laid him in his crib with his blankie. I turned on his mobile and then he started fussing. I turned off the mobile and started to get him out of bed, but before I had the chance, he stopped crying, and plugged his little mouth with his thumb. I watched out of view for awhile and sure enough he went right to sleep. I was so proud, but also heartbroken. I enjoyed our little rituals before naps and bedtime. I have a feeling he is going to be quite the independent little boy. What a man he will make : )

SSOOO CUTE! Now COME ON! You cannot say you 'enjoyed' those little sessions ALL the time, right?! You will find new ways of getting your cuddles in as he will always need his mommy.

When is John leaving again? We want you to come BACK!
