Today we got up early and watched a couple of cartoons.  Then Ana Kate played with Grandma and Mimi while I got ready and went to run a few errands.  When I got home I gave Ana Kate a bath and then we went to Walmart to get some last minute things.  She was such a good girl today and has been very good all week.  We are still doing the 8pm bedtime and it's actually going really well.  She still hasn't napped since we started going to bed early, but I'm thinking when she starts adjusting and waking up around 7am that we might try for at least a 1 hour nap mid-day.  I would never think a 2 year old doesn't need a nap, but she really hasn't been cranky this week.

Ana Kate got 3 birthday cards in the mail today and she was SO excited!  She has been asking for mail for a couple of weeks and then getting sad and pouty because as she says...'No one sends me letters.'  : (  It is so pitiful.  So when she finally got 'letters' (birthday cards) today she was beside herself.  They all had money in them, but she just put the money to the side and hugged her cards.  She carried them around for a long time and I heard her saying, 'My dreams came true....I got birthday letters!'  Super cute!  It's so fun to see such true happiness over the small thing and makes me want to try harder to appreciate all the small things in life.  Ana Kate is such a sweet sweet girl! I love her SO very much!
