This week he: had a great transition back to school after the break and apparently has been making everyone laugh a lot / made chocolate chip cookies... twice / went on an adventure to a construction site with daddy / continued to fear the potty (hypnosis might be the next step, there must have been some potty trauma in a past life) / requested candles and flowers for every meal / was so sweet inviting his sister to sleep in his room and announced 'I'm the best big brother!'

This week she: outgrew the bassinet / tried sleeping in a travel bed in the office, instead of in our room, as a temporary transition (disaster) / started sleeping in her actual crib in her shared room with her brother (only on night two here, but night one was the first time she's ever slept solid from 7PM-5AM... breath is being held!)* / started sitting confidently enough to not need crash pillows, although she still topples over occasionally / sat in the front of the grocery cart and loved the ride

*um, she slept through again from 7:30-5... I can't really get this lucky, right? we'll see, but she seems to actually be comforted by sharing space with her brother!

  1. They are beautiful! Love her in that little red dress! Here's hoping she's settled in that crib. :)

    1. Thank you! I felt slightly silly putting her in a dress, but then it was pretty cute :)

  2. Oh my gosh if your little one is already sleeping through the night I'm going to freak! That's awesome! And when we put Oliver (world's worst sleeper) in the room with Milo, it did seem to comfort him too. Good luck, Lilly! Fingers crossed!

    1. Yeah.. not quite ;) W is the world's best sleeper, so I knew we couldn't luck out twice. She's doing pretty good though.

  3. Not sure if it helps or not, but my almost 3 yr old is absolutely resistant as well to the potty, despite being enthusiastic at first, we've got 6 mos. before he needs to be for school. I'm thinking about not buying anymore diapers and giving it a weekend, but with the 3 mos. old. have not found the energy. Best of luck on all these transitions!

    1. Oh good to hear we aren't alone. I am getting to the point where I am ready to throw up my hands and wait until he's 17! We've tried just ditching the diapers and it didn't go well, since he is actually afraid to sit on the 'potty' at all. Somehow it will work out, sending you lots of luck!
