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.
