Alina, however, was an angel going to bed. I told her that it was time to go night night and she was just adorable about it. We went through her little pj's and rocking routine, and then I laid her down and she just smiled the biggest little smile I've ever seen on her and told me that she was going to go to sleep. I told her to tell me when she woke up in the morning and she just said "okay mommy, love you." She woke up all smiles this morning, too, and was ready to read about rubber duckies and the like first thing in the morning with daddy because "mommy go to work today"
I've decided being a Mom has got to be easier for me than other people. How could parents ever hurt their kids? I'll never understand that. My precious little angels are just amazing and even when we have a bad night with Raziel, Alina makes it all up for him.
OOOOH and Alina is getting so big so fast! She can now count to 8. Me and Brent were walking up the stairs to our porch with her and she counted the 4 steps and then just kept counting past until she got stuck at 8. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. I was so excited. She's not even 2 and a half and she can almost count to ten!!!!
