Our little girl has now become such a big girl. The last several months she has really been going through some “terrible twos” and not listening to mommy and daddy and being a very naughty girl as they say here in Africa. In the last 2 weeks, she has really turned her attitude around. One thing I think that has helped is that we FINALLY got rid of her pacifier. She only had it for nap time and night time, and really we should have done it a long time ago. The first couple nights were pretty rough sleeping without it, but she was encouraged that she was going to be a big girl just like her friends Madylanne, Olivia, Owen, and Andrew. She also decided to give up her naps, so that was interesting to say the least, but she is doing very well with it.
Children really are a gift from the Lord and we are so thankful for this little girl He has placed in our lives. Parenting certainly is not easy and has it’s ups and downs, but it is so worth it!!
