Missions Accomplished

We have a big...I mean Costco economy sized box of Buzz Lightyear and Woody pull-ups that AJ was refusing to wear.  He demanded, "THOMAS UNDERWEAR!" what...?

Mission:  Convince our 2 1/2 year old that Buzz Lightyear and Woody pull-ups are in fact cool enough to wear.
Game Plan:  Our first family movie night.  
Feature Presentation:  Toy Story
Result:  AJ screaming, "BUZZ UNDERWEAR!" as he ran upstairs for bedtime.
Mission Accomplished!

Mission:  Get girlfriend sleeping through the night.
Game Plan: Skip a night feeding by holding her instead of feeding her one night when she wakes up, let her cry it out the next night, full exhausting days at daycare, fresh diaper, warm bottle, sedative swaddle.
Result: 6 days straight of sleeping from 7:00pm to 4-5:30ish am.
Mission Accomplished!
Thank you Lizz and Baby Wise!

Yay! Indeed mission accomplished. When you set out to get her done, you do! AJ is the cutest. He totally took the bait. I can't believe how much he's changed. Check him out chowing down on the popcorn and whoppers!
