Last night Thaïs slept in her cot for the first time in over a year. I finally decided it was time she made the shift, so I cleaned up the cot which hadn’t been used since she was about six months old, ‘dressed’ it up a bit with her favorite dolls and teddy bears, and tried to make it all sound like a new adventure. I was most surprised to find that it worked!
Thaïs: My bed… my special bed… It’s small… just for me… You’re too big, Tana. Your bum won’t fit…
(Around midnight. Thaïs is standing up in her cot.)
Me: OK… Lights out… Goodnight!
Thaïs: I want my bib… I go look for her bib and give it to her.
Thaïs: Thank you Tana. Goo-night Tana. Goo-night Daddy.
(Around 5 am. Thaïs is standing up in her cot.)
Thaïs: Tana wake up… I’m wet… I made su-su…
I get out of bed to clean her up. Somehow, she has managed to wet the bed through her diaper. Since her bedding now had to be changed and I wasn’t in the mood to do that at 5 o’clock in the morning, I washed and changed her, and let her go back to sleep in our bed.
(Around 7 am. Thaïs is sitting up in bed.)
Thaïs: Tana wake up… I want my milk…
And so the day begins…

Computer’s running fine now. Installed all the required software so I should be fine for the next 6–8 months!
My angel’s back after spending 3-4 days with Mario’s parents. She’s grown in the short time she’s been away. Talks a lot more. Can’t imagine how that could be possible, but it is…
She can count upto 10, in order, now. Till the last 2 weeks she had her own order, which changed every time she counted! She can also write 0 and 1 (she calls them ‘ball’ and ‘line’).
Her favorite phrase now is ‘forget it’. You ask her anything, she says ‘forget it’ if she doesn’t want to/know the answer.
OK… it’s rather late… she’s finally finished her milk. Yeah… I was just killing time…
