Since my son Aaron was 17 months old he has some how found his way into our bed every night.  He will go to sleep independently but when he wakes up during the night he comes into our room and climbs into our bed. Sometimes he may wake up at 11:30 PM or sometimes it may be 4:30 AM, it varies.

Aaron will be 2 years old this Friday and our bed feels a little crowed at times.  I must admit I have been looking forward to the days when my husband and I have our bed all to ourselves. At least I thought I was looking forward to it.  Three times in the past week and a half Aaron has sleep the full night in his own bed and each time I found myself missing him as I woke during the night.  This morning I woke up and went into his room. He was lying there so soundly.  I wanted to pick him up him and take him to our room, but I refrained. I let him sleep, went to the kitchen and poured orange juice in his sippy cup then placed it by his bed for when he woke up.  I then went back to my room and waited. About a half hour later he walked in my room smiling as he sipped his juice.  He looked like such a big boy. As I held back the tears I said “good morning” and he walked over gave me a hug.

Time has gone by so fast. Especially this past year.  I feel like we were just celebrating his 1st birthday and I blinked and now we are about to celebrate another.  I guess I feel this way because we had 2 major life changes this year, one being moving and the second being birth of our daughter both which occurred in August.  We looked forward to our children growing up and gaining confidence while becoming more independent but at the same time you want them to still be your little baby. So I guess I am suffering from “empty bed syndrome”, i hate to see what I will be like when they leave the nest.  :-)

Love and Blessings
