This is night number two for Camille in her big-girl bed, and she is sleeping WITHOUT her pacifier! She hasn't used her pacifier since Monday night; today is Wednesday - so that makes 2 naps and 2 bedtimes without it! She's only asked for it one time, at nap at school today, but the teachers just ignored the request, and she didn't press it, so they didn't give it to her. This is huge! Paul had his for pretty much exactly 2 1/2 years, so according to that schedule, she's almost a year ahead of time - so, going by that time table, maybe potty-training will be next month! I guess I should start thinking of a new name for this blog, since "another day another DIAPER" will be out-dated once that happens - woo-hoo!
Paul is having his own milestones, too! He is getting smarter by the minute. I've been making them some Montessori printable "work" from online websites and today I printed some pictures of different constellations. They're basically a black sky with the tracing of the stars that form the different shapes. Without being told anything about it, Paul said it was pictures of stars. It doesn't look like OUR night sky - since we see a lot fewer stars for one thing. Not to mention, Paul is never up late enough to see it that dark in the sky anyways. He's also conquered most of the preschool level work I've made so far, including a coloring by number, where 5 batman logos all had a number in them, and at the bottom of the page, a color was spelled out in it's own color. So, he had to look to see what color each number corresponded with, and color accordingly. Pretty smart for a just-turned 3 year old if you ask me.
In addition to being incredibly advanced and smart (hey it's a blog about my kids - I can brag all I want), these days, when the kids are in a sweet mood, they really do love to take care of each other. Camille will always go and get Paul's shoes if it's time to go somewhere, and Paul will go and get toys or other things for Camille, because he pretty much always remembers where everything is if we can't find something.
Oh, and a funny story from last night - I went to check on Camille a few hours after I put her down - since it was her first night in the big-girl bed. And, I found her in the middle of her floor sound asleep! I picked her up and put her back in the bed, and she just kept on sleeping. Hopefully she'll stay in there tonight.
