FRIDAY!!!!

In the years to come when we talk about BellaRose, and we are asked to describe her as a child, we will talk about her determination. We will ALWAYS reference this December 11, 2009 when she said she would sleep in her big girl bed and she actually did it! She said Friday and my goodness she meant it. We laid her down for her nap in there and it took a little bit but she finally fell asleep and stayed asleep. We actually had to wake her up. It was a bit of a rude awakening too as I was taking pictures of her with the flash in her pitch black room. She even slept in there last night! Needless to say we are SO proud of her!
She had such a big day yesterday too, she was in her first Christmas Program at her school. It was so sweet. I actually got a little teared up as I watched her "sing" jingle bells. There was just too much to blog about so I am going to go one post at a time. For the time being we will embrace this determined little girl!
