Big girl

Olivia spent Friday night at Grandma and Grandpa's house, without paci and without incident. She accidentally left blankie behind and didn't even all. She was so exhausted after all her Saturday fun with Grandma and Grandpa and FINALLY getting to play outside on the first warmish day we've seen in a long time, and she fell asleep while reading books with Daddy on the couch at 7:15!!

Our girl has been "night trained" for five months, which just means that she wears undies to bed because she has an iron bladder and doesn't need a pull-up. In five months we've had three bedtime accidents, but NO mid-night potty usage. What this means, of course, is that typically she sleeps through the whole night without needing to use the potty. On those rare occasions where she does, she has peed in her bed.

On Saturday night, she woke herself up shortly after midnight, used the potty, and then came to tell me she had used the potty and would I put her back in bed please? I did, left the room for two minutes, and came back to find her fast asleep. I'm amazed on so many levels...waking herself up to potty without having been "taught" that, going by herself in the middle of the night, not freaking out about the monsters she typically sees in the middle of the night, falling asleep peacefully and quickly after being wide awake and without paci...

I think we can officially call her a big girl now.
