I Can't Believe It. . .

Since I was up to all hours working on my blog because I couldn't go to sleep, I was awake when this event took place.

*This may not seem like a big deal to some but to us it is a tremendous accomplishment!*

I finally made myself go to bed around 3:30 am. I was just laying there when I heard Brynn coming through the house. My 1st thought was that she was coming to get in our bed. She doesn't do this often but when she does, we let her stay.

I was wrong. She never came in. I turned to look out our bedroom door to find the bathroom light on. She was going to the potty in the middle of the night!!!

I truly thought this day would NEVER come. She has been potty trained during the day since she was 2 and 1/2 but the night thing is a whole other story. Sometimes she would go weeks without wetting her pull-up. Other times, she would wake up wet for several days straight.

We did try 1 time, after she had gone 3 weeks being dry every night, to let her wear her underwear to bed...BIG MISTAKE!!! She wet the bed 3 nights in a row. That was the end of that. It was too much trouble changing sheets everyday.

You see, I thought this day would never come because she takes after Brandon....and me too....we both love our sleep and are very sound sleepers. I thought she would never be able to feel the sensation while she was asleep! But....SHE CAN!!!!

So maybe just maybe you can understand my excitement. I thought she would be wearing pull-ups until she was 10 (not really, but you know what I mean) but now I know that there is a light at the end of the potty training tunnel!!

GO BRYNN!! That's awesome! Don't you love it when they reach a new milestone? It feels like they are really growing up! Go, girl!

Now, on to other matters. You are the most hard-core blogger I've ever seen. When you say "get caught up" you mean it!! Holy COW!! I've loved getting caught up with all your events!

Good job, girl!

Have a great Thanksgiving!

I 've been meaning to do it for awhile now and finally made myself sit down and get to work. Let's just hope I don't get behind again!

Happy Thanksgiving to you too!!
