I just put Yemi to bed for the first time in her big girl bed. She was SO excited. I left the rocking chair in there because I knew she wouldn’t be ready to give up rocking time…hmmm. I sat down in it tonight and she came in and said, “I don’t want to rock, just put me in my big bed!” 8:58 p.m.
I almost cried. Wow. I like giving away baby stuff; and i love the talking and doing things for themselves stage; but I wasn’t quite ready for that. Then I prayed for her and was saying good night and she said, “You aren’t going to rock me??” So, we did our normal little routine ending in Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. 8:59 p.m.
I have some absolutely adorable pictures to post but I don’t have time tonight, hopefully tomorrow. Yemi turns 3 on Saturday and we’ll be celebrating all weekend. She said she wants a donut, a cookie, and a cupcake for her birthday….she is SO my daughter. She is getting a Sesame Street floor puzzle and a really cool magnetic Usbourne puzzle book with a little brown girl named Abi in it that you get to dress in all kinds of stuff…Oops, I’m a bit over my time. 9:01 p.m. Gotta go! Enjoy the cute pics!
