New Year, New Room

After 4 years, 3 months and 12 days, The Munchkin is finally, FINALLY, sleeping in his own room.  via GIPHY Some people achieve this amazing feat as young as 6 months, others take a bit longer but I’m glad we did it this way because the transition has been a really easy and natural process.
