What a little weekend of milestones! Emmett turned one month old yesterday (can you believe it?) and spent his first night in his very own bedroom (which I think was a lot tougher on mommy than it was on baby).
James and I pretty much spent the whole weekend planning and rearranging the furniture in our apartment with the goal of finally setting up the nursery (for the most part). To make the transition from our bedroom to the nursery a little easier (again, probably just for me), we've left the crib in our room for the time being and set up the Pack 'N Play in the nursery. I figured this would make things a lot simpler if I decided I didn't like how things were going after the first couple of nights and wanted Em back in our room again.
I'm happy to report that the night went pretty well (normal behavioral hiccups aside). It may have taken me a little longer than usual to get to sleep due to worries about possible baby monitor malfunctions or kitty mishaps (thankfully, Oliver kept his distance), but in the end, it seemed to work out pretty well. I like to think Emmett enjoyed his independence, too.
Maybe I'll still give it a couple more nights before we move the crib into the nursery for good. You know, just to be sure ...
