while we're on the subject of letting go...
why don't we hit up the fact that my baby no longer prefers napping on the couch with me.
i was honestly dreading the day that we would have to transition nap time with me on the couch to the crib mainly because it's my favorite and also because i heard it would be a nightmare since he was already 12 months old and still lying there by my side. but all of a sudden it just happened. i can't even remember how. all i know is one day we laid down on the couch for our usual after lunch nap and he started crying and to the crib he went. and that's where he wants to be now.
i will admit to withdraws of his warmth and just the simple presence of him being there in my arms, but i know this is just another part of letting him go.
i am so grateful for the many naps that we had together in "our spot" on the couch. and i'm so glad that i took each one of them in. i'm sure you'll let me get one in with you every now and then...right??! ;)
thank you God for making this process so gradual. this is hard on us mommas! even the thought of much more right now is making my stomach turn.
take it easy on me baby boy! you could slow down just a teeny tiny bit ;)
love you, my little forever nap time buddy,
