Anyway.....didn't mean to go off on that. However, with that being said, Sadie fought her nap yesterday. Then she fought going to bed last night. A little after 10:00, it was finally quiet in her room and I was able to wake up Kris who had fallen asleep on the floor next to her crib. At 1:10 a.m., she woke up. When I say woke up, she was WIDE awake. Until 2:45. aaahhhhh!!! She wasn't crying, but she was standing up in her crib pointing at everything in her room, laughing at me when I told her to lie down, and saying 'choo choo' when the train went by. As tired as I was, she knew how to melt my heart by reaching out to me for a hug and saying 'mama, mama, mama' over and over. And I thought - what a blessing!
Then this morning before church, she found a crayon and did this:
She was so proud of herself. I was in another room when she came to me. I knew she wanted to show me something. She ran to her chair, sat down, and pointed at her artwork.
After that, she went from being a little monster to a little angel:
Who could get mad at something so cute?
Later in the day, I found this:
I'm glad my dog likes Cheerios!
As I sit here writing this, I'm happy to report that she went to sleep without any problems tonight. Hooray! I hope she sleeps all night, because who knows what she will get into tomorrow! I will need my energy to keep up with her, that's for sure.
