No Bottle Tonight!!!

Oh my god, I didn’t give her a bottle tonight!! She didn’t even ask! I had a few thoughts of going to the store when she woke up from her nap and going to pick out a big girl sippy cup and made a big deal out of it. But when she got up, Elmo just sounded so much better (so I could check my email, you know) and then we went around the house doing stuff and then dinner….

And then since Papa is gone, I asked if she wanted ice cream. heehee – Oh yes she did! So we got in the car and I just handed her the sippy bottle (she always drinks tons in the car), we got our stuff, we came home, I fed her a snack and had the sippy out still… Then we went upstairs and did our thing! We read books before bed with the sippy cup and a bag of raisins. She loves those raisins. She never even asked for a “baabaa”. She does usually have it with Papa though.

We shall see what happens tomorrow. Or even tonight, yikes. Its so much easier doing cry-it-out with one person in the house though. I don’t know if it’s just me but when I know Justin is up and listening I just start second guessing myself. “Am I being heartless? Is Justin still awake? Does he want me to just go and get her? Should I check on her?” I still have those thoughts when it’s me, by myself but at least I don’t have to wonder what the other person is thinking too. That’s a hard job. LOL – I just checked my sleep journal for her and it’s been 11 nights since we’ve given her a bottle. 6 nights since she asked for one and we let her cry it out. She had plenty to eat tonight though.

  1. How did she do? Seems the transition is going well for you, yeah! I can’t even imagine going through that at that age, they are so stubborn!! Can’t believe Griffin is almost here, I can’t wait to see what he looks like! Not as much as you I’m sure 😉 but I still can’t wait!! All these babies I get to see when I go to California! woohoo!!
