I got Raya up this morning and we took her to daycare. She cried again when I dropped her off, but Erin said it only lasted about 1 minute this time. Raya is dramatic lol. So then I tried taking Brielle into town b/c I've been wanting to pick up a few things to "stage" the house a little. But upon entering the very first store Brielle puked all over herself, was SCREAMING through the store, and with me being tired after a long night I just decided the screw it and go back home! haha. So we were in town all of about 5 minutes lol.
Good news though was that Brielle really was good most of the afternoon :-)
...she did go through 4 outfits today though with all her dang spitting up!
This is the swing chair, being used as a little rock and play...this is where she ended up sleeping early this morning too.
Grandma, this is the hazard with me making her wear headbands that are too big! :-)
Yesterday I DID have a successful outting though. I took both girls into town for Raya and I to get fitted for dresses (we're in a wedding in May) and then we made a Target run just since I already had them loaded in the car and in town. Both girls did great! The only problem is that Raya walks at a snails pace and Brielle and I practically got frost bite waiting on her haha.
...but anyways, at Target I bought her a bubble blower just like what they used at Kindermusik, since she LOVED that.
Here is her tonight playing with her bubbles...although she was being a turd and throwing a fit for food (apparently she must not have eaten much at daycare today!) so this is as good as I could get.
...and here she is saying "snack! snack!" and "cereal! cereal!" haha
I told her she had to wait b/c it was almost supper time. That didn't go over so well...
So to distract her I let her have her chapstick (which she asks for CONSTANTLY by smacking her lips together haha)
(Sidenote: Raya's adorable new "thing" is that when I put her to bed at night I sometimes sing "rock-a-bye baby" and I hold her and rock her for awhile, but it wasn't something I always did. Well a few nights ago I was in a hurry b/c I had to get back to Brielle and so I just laid Raya in bed and said "night night"...and she looks at me with her big brown eyes and said "rock Mama, rock Mama!" ....so I said "I forgot to rock you?" and she said "yeah!" haha. So now she is sure to remind me each night....I think someone figured out a way to get more 1-on-1 with mama ;-) That's alright with me though...I'll snuggle my babydoll any time
Lastly, here is Brielle after her bath tonight....showing how big she's getting!! My mom had bought her 3 newborn sleepers after she was born and we discovered she was so little....this is one of them. Well they were plenty big to begin with but now look how snug they're getting! The arms are too short and tonight I noticed her little legs are stretched mighty tight lol. Growin' girl!
|The hair isn't getting any less crazy! haha|
....she's looking mighty wide-eyed though...I'm in trouble!!!!!!!
