30 month growth spurt

I don't even know if there is such a thing, but here we are 2 1/2 yrs. & she's eating like we're race training, squeezing into 3t clothes . And new sleep patterns, long afternoon naps accompanied by LATE to bed times. Girlfriend is still awake as I blog, it's 10:15pm!!!!
We still do our same night time routine, but then multiple times we heard pitter, patter of her feet coming back down the hall.

Tonight I'm thinking I'll be asleep well before her, perhaps.

Happy New Year, no to diapers & yes to.....

So we've been talking about potty training here & there. We've had a mini potty for Lil before she turned two, last spring just to spark any interest she may have. Not too much interest at first. Then it was here & there. Every month when we would buy diapers I would say to Eli, "this will be the last ones we buy." Well in December we did, we started the 31st w/some interest on Lil's part & NO diapers. So we ran with it. I worked four nights straight so Eli did a great job with her the first few days. Nine days in & for what I thought would be messy, poopy underwear messes has been one poopy miss. We've had some pee misses but overall she's done really well. She turned 2 1/2 Friday & so cool to think of all that she's learned in such a short time.
This journey has been pretty cool thus far......I can only imagine what's ahead. I am so blessed.
