Catching Up

Woah...I forgot about blogging there for a second. We were a little bit busy last week and I was a little bit tired so I caught little naps with the kiddos a few too many times....so now I'm playing catch up.


 This little thang is going to be 6 months old on Wednesday. I can't believe it! She is quickly proving herself to be the easiest baby of all time and is just pure sweetness. Her 2 1/2 yr old brother crys more than her. WAY more than her. Sleeping situation: slept through the night early on for a month or so....then had a week where she slept horribly back in July and has been recovering ever since then. This past week she slept through the night again a few times,(woo-hoo!) so I think we're getting there. 2 nights ago she went from 7:30-6:30, but then last night was up 3 times. I know we're all sleep-deprived mamas, so there's probably no need to say how much that wears me out. It's funny. I've had this conversation many a times and after Henry's horrific night-sleeping habits, I've been one to encourage letting them cry it out. Funny how when it's me back in the saddle that I can't imagine ever doing that again! One thing with Henry was that he slept horribly at night (and progressively got worse the older he got) and only took cat naps during the day. Once he slept through the night (after making him cry) the naps improved drastically as well so it was worth it. On the other hand, this little girl takes 2-3 hour naps during the day and overall is getting better and better the older she gets, so I'm going to just keep on keepin' on with what we're doing. And man, ain't she sweet?!

 
 We had a family picnic Friday night and had a lovely time. Henry likes to wear his shades upside down and on his forehead and you had best not tell him any differently. He continues to crack us up all the time with the things he comes up with. And have I ever mentioned how obsessed he is with airplanes? All day long, he's either flying an airplane through the air or he himself is an airplane. Or a helicopter. Or a jumbo jet. Or a rocket ship.

 

 Have you ever tried taking a picture of your child while swinging?

 

 It's....hard....

 

 almost.....

 

 got it.....

 

The rest of our weekend was great too. We started our church community group last night and I'm so excited about it and to see how God uses them to grow our church closer as a family.
This week is a nice, quiet week for us, which I'm really looking forward to because the next few weekends for us are completely jam-packed. Should be fun though!
SHOOT. I forgot to watch Oprah today. I rarely watch her anymore, but today they were having a flash back to the 60's with a Mad Men theme...my new favorite show....ah well....did any of you see it?

Hope you all had a great Monday!

I love your pictures! I can't believe Harper will already be six months old! She is such a cutie-pie! Enjoy your more relaxing week! (Sorry, no Oprah for me today!)

Love the pics of your kids, as always!

I'm so glad Harper is such a good baby for you! Isn't it nice having the harder one first so you can appreciate how much better she is?! I hope she has more nights of continual sleep!
