Simone fell asleep (for the night) all on her own tonight.
We usually either rock her to sleep or nurse her to sleep (well, I don't do the latter, lacking the necessary parts). But tonight, Mary was at a business networking meeting, and I was trying to cook some dinner, and Simone was dog tired. To keep herself awake, she was using her new-found ability to squeal a very high pitched noise at incredible volume (I'm sure it's nothing compared to a 2-year old, we'll get there).
So I got her all changed into night-time clothes and swaddled up and lay her in bed. I went back to cooking dinner, and not 5 minutes later she was very peaceful, and a couple minutes after that, asleep.
She's growing up so quickly.
