We experienced some big moments with our little guy this past week.
On Thursday Linus spent his first night in his big baby bed, in his own room!
This was an emotional moment for me. Since his birth he had slept in his cozy cot next to my bed and now he was moving not only to a big bed, but also to his own room, which is not even on the same floor as mine! However, I knew it was time for this. He was bursting out of his cot and the nights (the crying/not-sleeping part) were getting increasingly worse. It was time to move on! It feels good too. I think it's very nice for Linus to have his own place where he can be safe and where he has room grow.
The next big happening was on Saturday when Linus had his first taste of something other than breastmilk. Apple was on the menu!
It was a great success as you can see! What a strange sensation it must be for him to have something solid and yucky-tasting in his mouth... I'm sure it won't take him long to get used to it. He did open his mouth for the spoon, which I thought was very clever of him.
And the last new thing is the fact that Linus is now in his stroller.
Look at that mini-man! It is so funny to see him sitting up instead of lying down.
Sigh, things are going so fast now.
For a sentimental person such as me it's difficult that every first time means also a last time. I don't like last times, I hate saying goodbye, but I'm really trying to focus on the positive side of it all. New beginnings, new chances... a different routine that will hopefully help us to find our rhythm again. And I definitely won't be sorry to say goodbye to the crying, the frustration, the despair that we've had far too much of lately. Today is a new day, I'm feeling hopeful!
