So at three in the morning I snatched up my pillow and blanket and crawled in to bed with Brooklyn. Keep in mind that; Brooklyn has NEVER slept in bed with us (She has been sleeping in her own room ,with no problems, since she was six weeks old) and SHE SLEEPS IN A TODDLER BED. You may be thinking I'm crazy, but one day I guarantee you will go into your toddlers room and you will want to cuddle with them. Saying that they grow up fast is an understatement.
Anyway I crammed myself in her bed and very happily fell asleep to the sound of her breathing. Something I haven't been able to do since Brooke moved to her own room, almost two years ago. I forgot how much I loved her little snore. I'm very lucky to have a hard sleeper who loves to cuddle.

For breakfast I gave Brooke a piece of raisin bread (along with her cereal)
Brooke, while picking out the raisins; Ewe gross
Me; no not gross yummy
Brooke, upon closer inspection of the raisin, You Eat!
later on Kevin passed gas.
Brooke, YOU POOP?

Many people start off the new year with resolutions like; lose weight or quit smoking, but my resolution is to stay positive. I have had a rough year and at times I used that as an excuse to act in a way that I'm unhappy with. This year I want to put that all behind me and become the person I want to be and someone Brooke can look up to and be proud of. This year I will be a better person and when life gets hard I will look for a silver lining and continue to be positive.
On a lighter note Kevin, Brooke and I spent the first with family. Our day started with lunch with my family. We had a great time eating black-eyed peas and cabbage (which i love). We also helped take down Christmas decorations, then divided them up between the gandkids. My nanny asked us to do this so that next year and the years after she would be able to spend Christmas with all of us. Even though I don't want to think of a Christmas with out her I am really exited to put the ornaments on our tree next year.
Later that night we went over to Kevin's moms house for dinner. Brooklyn kept us all entertained with her random games. She really loved playing with her aunt Jenny and uncle Josh, for about half an hour or so she made Jennifer take a nap while she read to her.
