The kids' room

Personal family update:

Tonight is the first night that baby Claire (almost 12 weeks) will be sleeping in the same room with big brother Owen. She is just far too big for her little basket now, and I'm sure will be much more comfortable in her big crib. We've been prepping Owen on this for several weeks now, first setting up the crib and calling it the kids' room rather than Owen's room, then asking him how he would feel about Claire sleeping in the same room (wouldn't that be fun?), and finally having her sleep there during naptimes. Here's hoping this is a smooth transition - wish us luck!


  1. Good luck! I do hope you'll keep us posted on that. I don't know if the news has reached you, but Lucinda will be getting a little brother in December and we're plotting new sleeping situations. How far apart are those two?

  2. Oh good god! That sounds like a scary experiment to me. I hope it goes well....good luck sleeping to the whole family!

  3. So far so good! The first couple of nights, Claire ended up back in our room after waking up to eat because she was being really noisy. Last night she made it all night, even after waking up to eat at 4 am.

    @Kelly: I had heard. Congratulations! Owen and Claire are 2 years, 4 months apart in age, so a bit further apart than your 2 will be. It was good because we moved Owen to a "big boy" bed well before she arrived so she could then have his crib without him thinking it was HIS bed still.
