Sleeping Alone

I love both my bed mates dearly, and I don't regret our decision to co-sleep for a single moment (how else do people nurse babies on demand and get any sleep at all?) - but I will admit that I really miss sleeping alone.  Even though jb and I have been together for quite some time, before Leo came along, I had a fair number of nights (thanks to extensive work travel) where I slept alone.  As much as I missed jb when we were apart, I did relish having a big, clean hotel bed to stretch out in.  Although, when it was just the two of us the king size bed felt a lot bigger.  These days, stretching out is a rare luxury.  I'm always surprised at how crowded a 20 lb. person can make an otherwise comfortable bed feel. Luckily, jb is the best husband in the whole world and on the weekends takes Leo in the mornings when he wakes up and I can stretch out and sleep in all the way until his morning nap.  Best sleep I get all week!

  2. im impressed you are still co-sleeping!! good for you! :) we kicked bird out at about 10.5 months - she slept in that same position, and in our queen sized bed, i found myself clutching to the edges so as to not fall off the side! :)
