I'd been putting it off. Mostly from laziness and with the hopes of keeping a private room for when we have guests stay. I was concerned about our visitors being uncomfortable sleeping in the room adjoining the master bedroom. In the end, my sleep was more important and Ashlynn's is getting too old. She knew I was 30 feet away from her crib in the middle of the night and I hated to let her scream and wake up Justin. It was often easier to go to her which just perpetuated the problem.
Monday I enlisted the help of Teklu and Zalalem to move the furniture and by that evening Ashlynn had her very own room. Justin and I could finally get ready for bed without tip toeing around our own bedroom. Ashlynn is an incredibly light sleeper and every night she'd wake unnecessarily from us coming in to the room for bed or hearing the dog's nail clicking on the hard floor or a fly would fart and she'd wake up. It was terrible.
The first night I couldn't sleep. Our room was too quiet without the baby's white noise machine blurring the outdoor noise (dogs barking and hyenas whooping). I got over it quickly. The last three nights have been blissful. It's nice to have our grown-up space all to ourselves again (11 months is ridiculously long time to sleep with the baby next door). Ashlynn is also sleeping more soundly. It took just two days for her to become familiar with her new room. In just three days, she's cut the wake-ups down to two. Last night was just one middle of the night wake-up. It's a huge improvement over the three to four wake-ups we were experiencing before the move. So it was all worth it.
