There's a Crib in Our Living Room

   For the first 5 months Theo slept in a nook in our living room.  At first it made sense because when waking up every 3 hours or so it didn’t really matter where he was and it seemed that not having the crib right beside our bed was the best option.  Eventually as he started sleeping more hours at a time and we started getting our evenings back, sitting in the dark and tiptoeing around the apartment became annoying.    Then we started putting the crib in the bedroom so we could actually make noise and even have friends over but when it was time to go to bed we would have to VERY carefully roll the crib out of the room into the living room without waking a sleeping baby.  it was a terrifying 15ft trip every night and those wheels on our modern mini crib do not roll as smoothly as you would hope.  At 6 months I had HAD it.  We had to move…
