They don't need me to help them sleep anymore

The babies they grow up so fast. They don't need me to help them fall asleep anymore though we still co-sleep. I have never believed in allowing my babies to cry themselves to sleep, just so they could learn to be independant of me and sleep in another room so that I can catch up with a few more hours of sleep at the time. I believe that they will outgrow their need for me and sooner rather than later, I will have my sleep back.

How quickly the time has passed. I remember we used to walk the babies up and down the room, sing softly to them or play music while rocking them to sleep. And no, they don't become super dependant and still need me to rock, pat or sing them to sleep. They've outgrown it. Time flies. Time really does.

They don't need me to sing, pat, rock and walk them to sleep them anymore but oh how I treasure those moments when I did, even though at the time I had very little sleep because of it. I believe my husband treasures those moments too. He always speaks of those early days with fondness. He did his fair share of walking up and down with the babies and believe it or not, the memory of it creates a sort of special bond for him and the child.

Theres this site that we loved. I remember when I had to work (or play) at the pc, I would put on the music and sing to the lyrics for my babies to fall asleep and when they fall into a deep slumber, I would lay them down and continue working on the pc. :) What lovely memories these are. Just listening to some of the music brings me back to those moments.
