She is my independent little dolly. And not because when Myles was born she was forced to be. ha! It’s her innate nature. I mean, she potty trained herself the week before Myles arrived. I encouraged her but she just wanted to be like her sisters. I was kind of bummed because I didn’t get to sing “She is a super dooper pooper” and dance in the bathroom. (Yes you should click that link and get that song stuck in your head all day.)
Yesterday she got her big girl bed. Which meant last night was the first time she didn’t sneak out of her crib to our room and helicopter-leg kick me all night. I really missed the dead-weight hand swinging and hitting me in the face. I wish I wasn’t such a light sleeper or I’d have all the kids piled in our bed.
There used to be a desk there so I have to pull her bed out while she sleeps since there’s lots of stuff on the wall. Before I take it down I wanted to document all the things I’ve collected for my girls over the years. (Vintage bird picture and cuckoo clock//I embroidered “I Will Follow God’s Plan For Me” when I was 10// Other random stuff: gold glittered feather, prints, horse hook, polaroid of Avery at the beach when she was two.) I might just keep pulling her little bed to the middle of the room. haha!
Of course there was a costume change in the ten minutes I was taking pics.
So I am curious while we are on this topic… When do your kids stop napping??
She insists on her dolls going to sleep then refuses to herself. I swear Ave slept until Kindergarten.
