Tonight started a new bedtime routine for Gracie. Most of you have read all my bedtime issues with Gracie. We went from rocking to sleep (which I loved and would tell any new mommy to do) to sitting by the bed holding her hand. For the past couple weeks, I have been moving slowly toward the door and tonight, I left her all together.

We said our prayers, gave our kisses and hugs, and then after tucking in bed I told her goodnight. She, of course, cried (not a lot or very hard), but only left her room twice. After about 10 minutes and she was out! Hopefully it will continue to be this easy.

What little girls are made of

On the way home from the grocery store.........

Lillie - can I roll my window down?

Mom - No, little girls are made of sugar and will melt when they get wet.

Lillie (with an attitude) - I am NOT made of sugar, I am made of JESUS!

I love my girls!
