Yes, this is Christmas week and its always a special time of year for us. However, it seems that AK’s has had an exceptional great week this far.
I woke her up early Monday morning to take her to Macon for her extra special Christmas present. She got her EARS pierced. She was really giddy on the way there chanting ” I’m getting me ears pierced!” She told me she was so excited and she kept asking me if it was going to hurt.
When we arrived she picked out a pair of flower earrings. The nurses quickly pierced her ears and we were out of the office. She did so great. She didn’t cry…just a little DEEP breaths.
We got out of the office and she called her daddy to tell him. As we drove home she kept saying “this is the best Christmas present ever” “I love this Christmas!”
At bedtime that night, I prayed with her and b=put her to bed but not before she whispered in my ear “Mommy, thank you for the ear piercing. I love it” It has been a fun experience and memory to share with her.
It’s now Christmas Eve and she is once again experienced another HUGE milestone in life. She lost her first tooth. How exciting it that? Loosing your first tooth on Christmas Eve. The tooth fairy and Santa will becoming. (wink.wink)
It has been fun for us all.
One last thing, Friday Decemeber 20, she came to me during quiet time and asked me if I believed in the Jolly fat man. I told her the truth because I didn’t want to lie to her. She seemed a bit disappointed, but she has enjoyed being a big girl knowing.
We are truly blessed by this little girl. My first daughter. I love you AK.
