He went right to sleep. I miss this age where transitions like this were so simple! Bobby gets so upset over every little thing - God forbid you use the wrong towel, cup, pair of socks, etc - here I take this baby and put him in an entirely different crib in a different room and he doesn't even care. Babies are so easy. *sigh*
I have minor anxiety about the possibility of a fire or a carbon monoxide leak or something...it's not easy to get up there to him if something did happen...but the room has been in place for two years, my sister and babysitter have spent many nights up there with no problems. Temperature regulation may be an issue; at least I have the new A/C unit for summer.
Already I'm sensing the benefits. B and I can stomp around a bit more after T goes to bed; I can do laundry after hours and actually put everything away; I can get dressed to go out without worrying about waking him up; and best of all I can sleep in my own freaking bed again! Alone in the room! The last time I did that was March 11, 2014.
I also set up this clip-on baby seat on the kitchen table in an effort to have us all have meals together for once. I have now had two breakfasts with both boys at the same time. It's not fun for me. But I can't just leave T screaming in the bedroom forever, and it's time for him to learn to self feed a bit; he's getting the hang of baby crackers but the poofs he can't quite manage yet. So mainly it's me with one hand feeding T and one feeding B (yes, he has of course decided I must feed him like a baby again...ughhh) and my breakfast going cold right under my nose because I don't have a third hand to feed myself. I still have to have lunch out and stagger our dinners because I just can't manage that level of multi-tasking three times a day.
Still, I'm excited for the new changes. If it works out, T should be good up there until he and B can share a room (that's going to be a while) and this meal setup should last for at least another year. Here we go!
