10 pictures for the 10th of the month.
I really want to start getting back into my 10 on 10 posts. I know, it's kind of weird now that I also have the 2 on 2 posts. Oh well... Anyway, today was a bit of a rough day in mommyhood. I'm quickly learning that 2 kids is definitely a lot harder than just 1! But here is our June 10th.
Welcome back iced coffee! (I gave it up in the beginning of my pregnancy because I didn't think it was helping my morning sickness any.) You were definitely needed after a rough night with Jillian. She was up from 1 - 3 a.m. ugh.ugh.ugh.
So far, we do not think Jillian likes the swing. Jenna absolutely loved the swing and I guess I assumed that Jilli would too, but she just cries every single time I try it.
So, when she cries, her big sister will often go and rescue her.
So, not only did Jillian not sleep very well last night, but she barely slept any in the morning either. Around 1:00, I became desperate for her to get some sleep. We all got in the car and went for a drive around the neighborhood. It only took 15 minutes and then she slept for a peaceful 3 hours. I forgot how we would use this method with Jenna too, but I have a feeling we might be doing this again too.
My house has become a bit of a disaster lately. But, as you've probably figured it out, I've been a bit busy lately. ;) I'm happy if I just accomplish at least one thing a day now. Jenna's art cabinet has been really bothering me lately, so I decided today was the day for an overhaul. The organizational method we had been using just (obviously) wasn't working anymore. There are baskets in there, but she would just throw things back on top of them creating even more of a mess.
So, I went to Wal-Mart and got these modular white plastic containers. I didn't know how many I would need, so this isn't fully finished yet. I plan to go back for more and get rid of the blue containers. Everything will now have a definite space and hopefully this will solve the above issue of just throwing it back in the cabinet.
While Jilli was also napping, I decided to try and put together this bouncy seat that I've had for several years now. I got it at Target for 75% off (yes, years ago when Target still did the full 75% off!) It was super cheap and my original plan was to give it as a gift but I think at that time, everyone I knew was having boys. So I just kept it in my baby stash and pulled it out of the box today. I figured it was worth a try since she doesn't seem to like the swing. It may be too early to tell, but I think she definitely likes this more than the swing!
Tonight, we all went to Chick Fil A for their princess night. It was absolutely crazy in there and then super hot outside. As we were leaving, Jenna threw a crazy fit. I honestly think the heat was just getting to her, but geez....
The biggest princess and the littlest...
Immediately after we came home, I found this. Jenna made this little bed in her floor and was watching something on the ipad. Maybe she'll actually sleep there?!?
And now thank goodness, it's almost bedtime! :)
