Well, tonight it's official.....
My baby is a big girl now :)
It took an hour to get her to go to sleep, but she did it and without crying, too. She didn't even ask about her water bottle, either.....
I'm almost torn up over it~ I don't want her to grow up yet.
I missed so much when she was a baby~ being I had my head in the clouds, or up my butt, whichever.... I can barely remember her then.
Where does the time go?
Congrats, Gracie on your first step toward big kid-dom....
Love you baby,
PS~clarification as to why she still had bottles: Grace had high lead levels after we scraped and repainted (some of you remember the final rounds of tests). It was imperative she got a ton of calcium, vitamin D, iron, and potassium so the lead would adhere to these minerals in her body and be washed out (I'll spare you the medical terminology for all this). Her doctor did not protest my decision to keep her on the bottle until her lead levels fell below 10ppm (acceptable low amount not harmful to us) to be sure she got said nutrients. She was tested at a 9 last April and her bottle supply went then, too (except for the water bottle at night~which is gone tonight~woo hoo).
