First fight...

One of the reasons I started this blog was to document milestones or things I want to remember and have on record. Yesterday one of those things happened. Brooklyn and I had our first real fight. We were enjoying a lovely walk around the neighborhood. Brooklyn was wearing a cute pink hat to keep the sun off her bald head. About half way through the walk she decided she didn't want to wear the hat anymore. I disagreed. The fight was on. It took us about 20 minutes to get down one street. I kept having to stop to fight with my 9 month old daughter. She pitched a full on fit right in front of the fire station. Screaming, arching her back and hysterically crying, all while playing tug-o-war with me over the hat. Well at this point I realized that this wasn't about the hat anymore. It was a battle of wills and I knew I had to win. So needless to say, I WON! I never thought I'd be so excited about winning a fight with a baby. But I was:)
