Oh man oh man!
Thanks to everyone so so much for all the awesome support, advice, and suggestions from my most recent woes. I have tried a few of the ideas. I got two great messages from Kieren and my sister's sister-in-law Lindsey about the Montessori idea of the floor bed. I liked it but I need a mattress bigger than her crib mattress so I dont have to nurse her to sleep while I'm on the hardwood floor. We both don't exactly fit, my baby is a bed hog. I am going to keep trying that idea though.
Truly, thank you for all your lovely words.
p.s. I felt lame for charging for those awesome vintage patterns. So now they are all posted and free here. Have fun and make tiny animals.
Rachel, I'm so glad that the floor bed might work for you!. Being a sleep deprived mommy is the hardest thing in the world. (At least it was for me.) If you have any questions or just need someone to vent to, shoot me an email. Best of luck!
I totally can't relate to this yet, but I'm taking not when we have our own little one.
I am not sure if you have ever heard this song, but it's beautiful and I thought you might love the lyrics.
