An update

Things are going pretty well, I would say. It's always interesting, for sure! Hannah will actually go potty when I offer her the chance, which she has not done in a LONG time! She's been pretty reliable upon waking and after a walk, but random offerings when I think she might have to go have been met with resistance for some time. I think she took advantage of a potty-tunity twice yesterday! I've caught two poops in a row, both times it was because she was right next to me when she started, so we finished on the potty. That's an improvement as well. Many times if I move her when she's started, she won't finish. No matter how gently I move her! The dry nights are continuing, which is really great! She also happens to be waking up only once or twice a night, which is sheer HEAVEN for me! She's 14 months and 3 weeks old now! I can hardly believe it!

cloth diapers!

One thing that is exciting to me- I have a six-pack of bamboo diapers that I bought a year ago, and they still fit! We're still using them! We don't use them as much because we don't need night time diapers like we did there for awhile, and they're velcro and she can take that off. But I could still use them at night if I need them! A year!!! And they still fit!!

Night time- getting better!

It's been awhile since I've posted! It's been a period of continued sleep-deprivation (until recently!) and very sketchy internet connection. Not a good combo for blogging! Anyway, the sleep situation is vastly improved. I read the No Cry Sleep Solution book and learned some very important tips that so far are helping!

Also, Hannah has really been holding her pee at night and waiting for me to take her. It's so much nicer than soaking three or four diapers a night! And she doesn't fuss, either, like she did for so long. She wakes up, somehow I know to take her, and she goes in her potty. Ahhhh.... so nice!
