Yesterday, was June 26th. Exactly 5 months ago Bennett was born. 5 months usually doesn't seem like a big deal, but for me, it was.
Bennett had some rice cereal for the first time. He pretty much just spit it all out, ha ha. But just the fact that we were giving him something other than breastmilk/formula meant that he's growing up!! Eeek.
Also, Philip finally put his foot down and told me Bennett had to start sleeping in his own room. I have been putting that off for months. Since he's been born, he's always been in our room. I've loved that, because at any time I could look over and see him sleeping in his cradle.
Last night, Bennett slept in his room. In his crib. After we laid him down - I just stood there and stared at how little he looked in his crib.
I walked into our room, sat on the side of the bed and looked over at his empty cradle. Here came the waterworks! I just started crying. Silly, I know - but I already missed being able to hear him breath at night and make his cute little sounds.
Philip comforted me, hugged me, and told me it was alright. "He's just in the other the room, honey. He will be okay, the monitor is on and we will hear him if he wakes up". Oooh my sweet husband. Why is it that they have such an easier time with this sort of thing?
Well I finally went to sleep. Woke up every couple of hours to check on the baby. Of course, he was fine... sleeping sweetly in his own room.
I know that this is just one of the many times I will have to let go and just say "He will be alright". Not sure it will ever get easier.
Well, here are some recent pics of my little guy!
