My baby no more...

I am really really sad tonight. Martha Grace has finally moved from her Moses basket in to her cot *cue gasps of horror*

At nearly 10 months old she moved out of Mammi & Daddy's room and in to the Bedroom she will share with her big Sister Isabella Nicole for as long as we live in this house.

I've known for a while that it was time for her to move in there, been far too nervous to take the plunge before. But after last week's appointment at Great Ormond Street I couldn't put it off
any longer...she was bursting out of the Moses basket.

A tiny part of me was hoping she would play up so I'd have to bring her back downstairs to sleep in there until we went up to bed...but she fell asleep on the sofa with Mark just after 9pm, we carried her upstairs - she woke up while we put her sleeping bag on but quickly settled herself down and we haven't heard a peep from her since. She will sleep now until the morning.

So that's it, never again will I have a sleeping newborn in the Moses basket next to my bed. It's the end of an era, my baby days are over. Oh how I wish I could have enjoyed it a little bit more.
