I wish I had not lost my pictures. We started co-sleeping with our oldest son from day two. The first night I was at the hospital with him. It just seemed easier to have him in our bed with us. Afterall, I was breastfeeding and had no need to leave the bed. At the time I had no clue of the term "co-sleeping", I just knew that it felt right. So we have continued the practice with all five of our kids. In 11 years we have had many size beds from two twin beds pushed together, full, queen, california king and now a full and twin pushed together.
The kids who still wander in at night like to crawl into the twin bed. They feel like it's their own bed yet, they are still close to us. The littlest still sleeps with us unless he falls asleep on th couch. He loves the couch. I don't blame him it's comfy.
Sometimes in the morning I have even been woken by a dog or two crawling into bed. Imagine a big lab or husky snuggling a baby or two. This is all just part if a journey. An amazing journey to keep our family close and secure. If I had to go back the only I would change would be the have a giant bed from day one.
The journey still continues.....as does my love for our kids.
Much Love and Snuggles,
