Big Milestone!

Well, besides Bella starting kindergarten a month ago today!!! She also tied her shoe for the first time tonight! I would have never thought it would have been tonight, given the fact that she literally was super sassy, tired, and crying most of the evening b/c she hasn't been feeling well and missed her dad who is in Canada and has been for over a week. We got home and ate dinner, and she was so upset that i told her she could not have junk food, that she pitched a fit and literally cried for about a half hour.
We took a bath, we changed clothes, we brushed our teeth, the whole time she was still crying all b/c i would not let her her a treat. Finally, we were getting ready to go to bed, and she started trying to tie my pajama pants and got really angry that she was having a hard time. She stomped her feet and curled up in the floor, and said she would never learn... I just kept saying that she had to try and that i knew it was hard, but she would figure it out if she kept trying. She gave up and got in the bed. We just happened to get back up b/c she had to go to the bathroom, and she started trying to tie my pants again since she had calmed down, and literally did it right away!
We squeeled and high fived, and laughed... and she was so excited. The look on her face when she saw me laughing and so proud of her was beautiful. She was so proud of herself and you could see it. She is such an amazingly wonderful girl... I am so lucky and blessed. Congrats Bella on tying for the first time!!!! Many more milestones to come!
