Moving Day!!

Marissa finally moved into her own room!!

We have had her in our room since we brought her home May 31, 2007. When we first brought her home we were nervous about her trach and how she would sleep. We wanted to be able to see her and have her within arm's reach. Now that we are used to the trach and we know that she is fine when she sleeps, it is way past time for her to be in her own room. The girl needs her independence!

We got a video monitor that we mounted above her crib so we can see her and make sure she doesn't get tangled up in her tubes and wires throughout the night. She has been sleeping better the last couple of nights since we moved her nap time and going to bed time earlier (quick, everyone out there knock on wood!) Surprisingly she also slept very well last night, the first time in her new room.

Jeremy and I are also happy that we have our room back. We have so much more space!

Here is a video from this morning. You decide whether she likes the idea of having her own room:
