7pm and after shower, it was into bed. I read you a story ( one of Aesops Fables) and then said good night and turned out the light. You did protest for a while but a backrub soothed you. Everytime I did go to leave the room, you'd call out "Maaamaaa" so I sat there in the dark with you for a while. You nodded off easily and then, miracle of miracles, slept through until 4:50am! That is 9.5 hours - the longest sleep you've ever had!
Last night you'd had an early nap so bed was slightly earlier and you again slept through to 5am - 10 hours solid. You grumbled a bit aroudn midnight ( I know because I'm sleeping on a mattress in your room with you) but soon settled again without my assistance.
To top it off on tuesday you chose a new cup at the shops to replace your bottles. You still ask for a bot bot but when I tell you that this is your special new cup, you have your milk and settle off to sleep.
My little bubba, you are growing up.
I love you
