The First Night

There have been huge changes in the Land of Bing over the last 4 months.  Mainly the arrival of Daniel's little sister, Lucy Faye and Daniel's entry into the world of big brotherhood.

And while I obviously have a lot to say about both of those events, this post is about something else:
My lovely family's first night in our own bedrooms since October 2011!

Yup, that's right.  First Matt, Daniel and I slept in the same room while the top two floors of our home were being renovated.  Then little Lucy showed up and the house was still not done so ALL of us slept in that room.  Until tonight.  Daniel gave his baby sister his crib and he is in his new big boy room and in his big boy bed.  Lucy is sleeping in a real crib for the first time in almost 4 months.

Daniel corrects me when I say that he's my "baby boy".   He says "No mommy.  I'm a big boy" and tonight proved it.  He crawled into his bed, told us that the monogrammed letters said Daniel Bing and then had Matt stay in his room for about an hour until he fell asleep (not surprising).

While sleeping in the same room  and falling asleep to the breathing of my babies was sweet for a while, as soon as they started waking each other up at 5:30am I was over it.  But now that Daniel is (finally) asleep and Lucy looks so small in Daniel's crib, my heart aches a little that those babies won't be so close to me at night.
