Lullaby and good night, you're a mother's delight...

Tonight is Charlie's first night in his crib in his room. Alone. All this time he has slept in the same room as us, and last night, he even slept in our bed with us for awhile.

We are only moving him to his crib because we have no other choice. We just realized that he weighs too much to sleep in the bassinet of the pack 'n' play. We talked about moving his crib into our room, but there just isn't enough room. So his crib in his room it is. Sob, seriously. I was near tears during his bath tonight.

I never thought Charlie would stay in the pack 'n' play for long. I figured we'd have him in his crib by the time he was two months old, but moving him never felt right to us. It still doesn't. I'm going to miss him so much. I love having him right near us.

In honor of my little boy getting too damn big too damn fast, I thought I'd share one of my favorite lullabies. It's sung by Jewel (don't hate), and it totally makes me cry.

Damn, this motherhood gig is tough.

Whenever it all gets to me, I just keep saying to myself 'you're doing the best you can'.

And that's exactly what youre doing, and then some.

My little one just fell fast asleep to the song, as did I almost!
