Ryan has been sleeping with us on the master bed from his second month. He was sleeping in his baby cot prior to that. After his infection in his second month, we have moved him onto our bed (right in the middle between my wife and I) in order for us to keep an eye on him during the night. He has been there ever since.
As he grows older, he is beginning to occupy more and more space. Every night, he is like a helicopter, turning and turning. By 3am in the morning, his butt will be in my face on some nights, or I will wake up with his face right before my face. Besides the fear of crushing him, no knowing when his fragile hands or legs would be next to me, I am also loosing my space to sleep. Needless to say, to grab a `romantic' moment with my wife is rather challenging, to say the least.
I have decided that I am not going to be `kicked out' from my own bed to sleep on a thin mattress on the floor while he happily `conquer' and `occupy' my space.
Since, the babysitter is on half day leave today and I have to take care of Ryan myself, I have moved the baby cot back into our room and successfully put him to sleep in his own bed. The real test is tonight, when I have to get him to sleep soundly through the night on his bed. And hope that my wife would not compromise by putting him back onto our bed in the middle of the night if he cries. Wish me luck......
