Few things in the world are more beautiful to me than the sight of Daniel sleeping. I could watch him for hours. He still sleeps in our bed at night — and usually through the night now, which is wonderful — though he is getting much better at taking daytime naps in his crib. I don't mind him sleeping with us. It feels really warm and intimate having our whole family fall asleep together at night. I do hope, however, that he will decide on his own, in a year or two, that he'd rather be in his own bed. I'm not going to force him, but I'm crossing my fingers that he'll show a similar sense of independence that he did when he nursed for the last time. After that, he pushed me away and didn't want to do it anymore, and although that was kind of sad, I'm glad it was his choice and not mine.
