Separation anxiety

17 Oct

Coco is almost 3 months old and she’s really starting to show a lot of personality. Like GP and me, she has a very expressive face and can say a lot with just a look. Fortunately for us, the face she makes most is a smiley one.

Yesterday morning was actually a chilly one here in Southern La, and her little lip was trembling! GP wrapped her in a blanket and she went to town smiling and trying to eat it.

She’s growing like a weed! She’s about 24 inches long and weighs about 14 lbs. The 0-3 month clothes aren’t going to fit her much longer, and neither is her bassinet.

We’re starting to transition her to the crib in her room. She starts the night in her bassinet, and after her 3 am feeding we’re moving her to the crib. This morning she slept there until 7 am without making a peep.

Before she was born I looked at this situation in a very detached way, thinking that it’s normal and would be nice to get her in her own bed and out of our room. But now that we’re actually doing it, I feel a little sad. After having her sleep right by me for a full year, it’s strange to move her to a room across the house.

    Oh my gosh, she is so adorable wrapped in that beautiful blankie!

    We started Kurt off in a crib so I have no help there. Good luck though!

    She’s absolutely adorable! I can understand your feelings about moving her. The time goes by so quickly!!

    Eeeee such a cutie! I love the blankie pics! (Okay, I’m a little biased, but they really are adorable.)

    I agree with MizFit: you have to do what’s best for you and Coco and GP. And don’t let anyone make you feel guilty about your choices!
