Sleeping milestone

Another day, another milestone. This one is huge though, baby girl. Tonight, for the very first time ever you allowed me to put you to bed WITHOUT nursing. Wow. What an accomplishment for both of us! It’s such a bittersweet moment right now as I look at you right next to me, sleeping so peacefully. There is something to be said for your cognitive development. You are understanding more every day and you are beginning to reason. It’s just so amazing. Mama told you tonight that it was time for bed, but that the milk was already sleeping. You didn’t fuss about it at all. After some playing around and talking (running through your vocabulary) you laid yourself down on my pillow and went to sleep. Bam. Just like that my little baby girl doesn’t need me to fall asleep anymore. Bittersweet. This was the best picture I could get tonight. I don’t want to risk waking you up!
