Day 8: Decorate the Christmas Tree

So, the first night in the big girl bed was a success for the most part. She laid in it with no problem, but when she lost her sippy cup in the bed she freaked out. We filled it back up and laid her back down, turned on a night light and she was pretty much out. A small bit of crying it out and of course, it worked. We will see how tonight goes.

Originally, it was time to decorate our Christmas tree at home tonight. But, I volunteered to work and it ended up being late. By the time I got home, we were not really feeling the idea of putting together tree and stringing the lights and such. So, luckily, Grammy and Papa came and picked Punky up to decorate their Christmas tree with them and her cousins.

When I got home, she was very much ready to open her envelope. So, while the countdown isn’t going like I had planned, she’s still experiencing Christmas activities every day, which was the goal of the countdown. AND, I really do appreciate family members helping making her holidays special.

Today she pulled out jellybeans again. Day 8 was not as planned, but still pretty darn successful.
