I lied

I was going to start potty training today but Sophia is running fever still.  Since yesterday she had some nasty nasty diapers I think I'll wait till that passes.

my girls

While I was cooking supper the girls were outside playing.  Brooklyn really loves Sophia and tries (most of the time) to help her out all she can.  If only we could all be care free like them.

sweet dreams

So sweet dreams do not get to stick with me for very long.  Sophia is up at night again.  We have decided to separate the girls again.  I'm a little sad because I liked the thought of them sharing and having one another at night, but not when Sophia is up all hours of the night making noise and messing with Brooklyn.  I used to love when jessie would let me sleep in her bed and when we would talk and giggle till we fell asleep.  Tonight she gets a pallet on the floor in the lavender room till we get the youth bed from my dad this weekend.  Hopefully this will help both of them sleep better so we can have some better mornings.

My sick baby

So Sophia has had a cough for like 3 weeks and this morning she was coughing so hard she almost threw up.  I get to the dr's office and find out on top of her cough she had an ear infection.  No fever, has never pulled on her ear or made out like it was bothering her.  So now she has had no nap, and is so tired and cranky.  Bed time is coming early that girl.  While we were at walmart I let her pick out some new underware.  I think while Brooklyn is gone I am going to start 100% panties on Sophia.  Give her a few days to adjust.  Anyways out of all the underware there she picked little boys nickelodeon characters!  Lets hope it goes well for all of us.

todays jury duty adventure

So today I had jury duty.  I went in at 12:30 and there was already a line of people to get in.  At one we were led into a big room where we were checked in and the waited and waited.  I was sitting in the front row and was by some really nice and chatty people.  One guy was a manager at little ceaser and gave me some coupons for free cheesy bread and some little lc bracelets for the girls.  The lady I was next to is a private investigator!  How cool is that?  Anyways by 3:15 the judge finally came in and read her spill about who can be a juror etc, etc.  Then she told us if anyone has a hardship and can not serve on the jury to please come forward.  So I lined up in between two other stay at home moms.  All three of us were excused without prejudice.  I hated to get out of the jury, it would be a very interesting experience.  For me it just wasn't working out fr a babysitter this go around.  Maybe next time!  Thanks Mrs. Murl for wrangling the kids all day!

retro rainbow romper

This morning i was looking at one of my favorite sewing blogs call "sewing in no mans land"  She had this adorable pattern on it.  I had some left over SAINTS gear and thought I would whip something up for next football season.  The pattern was size 2-18months or 4/5.  Probably by August Sophia will be in a 4.  Brooklyn, as you can tell by the butt shot, is outgrowing 5's.  I am thinking I can add some length to the crotch and make her one to fit too.  I haven't made anything since we put out house on the market 4 weeks ago so it was fun to pull out the sewing machine.  Now I still have the task of putting everything up!  I am thinking for this outfit instead of a tie neck I am going to find some sort of elastic so when Sophia is potty training it won't be an issue.  I'm really loving this pattern so you will probably see many more of these on the girls this summer!

to pee or not to pee

To pee or not to pee?  Now that's a big question.  Sophia is telling me all the time before she poops that she needs to.  She is also bringing me diapers and wipes and will lay herself down.  I am thinking it's time to potty train her.  I had wanted to wait till it warmed up a bit so she could run with no pants on.  So now I wonder should I wait a little longer and go ahead and buy another box of diapers of should I just go ahead with the panties?  Its going to be all or nothing when we potty train her.
