Wow, congratulations!!

Yeah, sleep will be a challenge for a while. I have a 2 year old, so can still remember being quite sleep deprived (it does get better..at least for sleep).

I'm not going to try giving you any advice, as I don't know your situation. If you are co-sleeping though (which is what we did) just make sure to read up on safety and always sleep with your wife in between you and the baby. She has instincts that you don't have.

No we had her in our room for the first month, and moved her to her own after that, it seems to have worked well. We had heard co-sleeping wasn't a good idea, but glad to hear it worked well for you guys. Did you have trouble adjusting them to sleeping on their own?

Well...we did get her into her own bed, in her own room without much difficulty. We would just stay with her for the first 20 minutes of lights out, and then if she wasn't asleep by then we would leave. I think this is a good middle-ground between cry-it-out and coaxing them to sleep.

However, due to air quality issues outside (her room window is not very airtight) , we have temporarily moved her bed into our room. So...she usually will sleep in her own bed, but sometimes will come and try to take over our bed.

Whilst I saw everything on Facebook, I don't think I actually extended any congratulatory statement to you both, so congrats! Best wishes to the whole family :)

Congrats :D!!

When will she make an account on RV?

-Phat

When we were picking out names for her, we were obviously thinking of her RV username too. I think we settled on Applechow.


Thanks for all of the congratulations and warm wishes, everyone! :^_^:

Apple, Chow - Congratulations! It seems this site hasn't had a lot to celebrate for a while, but this is something. Back in the day we would have had an epic party around the tree gnome village, or something!
