Well I cried a lot over the nuk, actually a lot more than Caroline did.  When it came time to tie the nuk to the balloons, she just watched and then was really excited watching them fly off.  I think she even said it was amazing.  I look awful in the pictures like it was my nuk or something.  She did really well afterward.  I gave her a big Christmas princess book that I was going to wait until next Christmas to give to her, but thought now would be better.  One time that evening she cried about it for about 10 minutes.  At bedtime she only asked for it once, but didn't get upset.  It did take her two hours to go to sleep, but not because of the nuk.  She only mentioned it once last night without getting upset.  We just keep emphasizing how proud we are of her and she smiles and says yes like she is too.  She did throw a little jab at me yesterday morning.  We found a bow we had not seen in a while and I said oh wow I haven't seen this in a long time and she said back, "Oh Momma did you think you sent it away like my nuk?"  Haha.  Funny girl.  She has not even mentioned the nuk today.  I'm so proud of my not baby anymore!!!  (no she's still my baby, always)

I told you I look more traumatized than she does.  
Reading her new princess book.

She has actually cried a little each night for it, but nothing too bad.
