Sommer Finally in Her Own Room

When we first found out that Tracy was pregnant, we started working on getting Sommer’s room finished. But it was already our guest room with a inexpensive bed that we added a pillow top to for more comfort. But we’ve been having problems figuring out what to do with the bed, now. I like the idea of having a guest bedroom though I know we won’t need it much. The office isn’t very big and the bed and computer desk won’t fit comfortably in there, especially when you consider luggage having to fit in there as well. I really don’t want to have the computer downstairs either. It’s really more of an “out of the way” computer. I think we’re just going to have to sell the bed (but we’ll keep the pillow top for our inflatable Coleman, which people have already said it’s quite comfortable).

While we haven’t made a decision, there was room to wedge Sommer’s crib in there. Ever since we got back from Nebraska she’s had trouble sleeping and we had read and had been told by a friend that putting her in her own room will help. So we did. And it has. She should also be old enough that we can let her “protest cries”, as our friend put it, go unanswered. It’ll be an adjustment for her, but we’ve already noticed she sleeps better at night. Tracy read that babies can often sense their mother’s milk and being in the same room could’ve been a detriment.

We’re learning. But we’re (usually) loving it. Hopefully with Sommer taking better naps like she used to and needs to she won’t have as many days where she’s just exhausted but won’t sleep and is a crab because of it. I know, I know – as said “as many” days.

We still need to finish furnishing her room. We need to get one of those 3- or 4-in-1 beds. Kyle has one (or two?) and likes it, and it’s a great bargain over buying 3 or 4 different beds. We also need to put up a couple of shelves. Of course, we just need to decorate more in the house anyway. We just can’t seem to find the items we want even after visiting at least a half-dozen stores.
