At barely 2 1/2 this makes his "mom" (as she is already called) a little sad! Where is the "mommy," the crib, the itty-bitty-ness? He did however, still require his "bee banbeck" (bee blanket) and paci to go to sleep, and that makes his MOMMY a lot happy! He's the last, so he better stay little a bit longer! He earned a cookie monster tattoo for his success and i'd say sleeping until 9am is success when you're only 2 1/2!
