I cannot believe it!

Guess who slept in her own bed all night last night? KATIE! She heard us talking about Friday night and she told us that she wanted to sleep in her own bed last night. So, we got it all ready and gave her a bath. She had 2 stories in her bed and we turned off her light, turned on her nightlight, kissed and hugged her goodnight and left her room. She called for me twice to tell me she loved me and then she fell asleep. By herself. For the first time since she was born. And SHE SLEPT ALL NIGHT! I woke up at 4am (when I usually wake up to take my medication) and got up and checked on her and she was sound asleep. We think we heard her once earlier, but Cheryl got up and she was just talking in her sleep. She woke up at 6:30am which is early for her, and I would have let her go back to sleep except I had to take Cheryl to work today (because we are going to Ithaca tonight to meet 2 internet friends) and we needed to leave by 7:15am. I am still in shock. It felt so weird not to have her there with us, but it was so nice to be able to move around in the bed and not worry about waking her up. And it was nice to be next to my wife all night.....

Thanks for all the WTG's! I must say that I am in shock about this. Although why should I be? Katie does things on her own time and when she is ready, she's ready! I am just glad she's so happy!
