The sleeping transition has officially begun. This is Chloe proudly sitting on her new bed next to ours. It has been over a year that Chloe has slept with us, so this was a big change. She is very happy to have her own bed and has not fussed about sleeping in it. However, staying asleep is another story. Chloe thinks that she has to been touching us at all times to make sure we are still there. Last night Chloe woke up 3 times before 1:00am. Come afternoon, I need a nap as badly as she does. In the long run, learning that we are still there even though she can't feel us will go a long way toward her trust and bonding. Please just pray for our perseverence in the mean time.
Last night we played some games as a family. If you notice, Chloe is not very happy in the background. She is learning that she is not always the center of attention and she needs to play quietly while Greg and I focus on the other kids sometimes. So many lessons to learn - so little time.
Chloe and Buddy the cat. Now that it's cold outside, he seems to slip in whenever the door opens.
