You Are Getting Sleepy

Well, last night was pretty awful. Kate is such a champion sleeper really but last night something kept her awake between 11:30 and 1:30. I tried everything: Tylenol, tummy filling, patting, playing, crying...but she was just having none of it. I heard a thump again at 2:15 but she seemed to be asleep. I finally fell asleep myself and someone else was at my door at 4:30. Ack, luckily she went back to sleep until about 7:15. I knew that today was going to be a very kid centered day. If I didn't keep both of them very occupied then the grumps were going to come out in full force. We spent the morning at the library and picked up lots of fun books. We had a little fun with tissue paper and glue sticks. Next we ate lunch and made some home-made cookies. We used up quite a bit of Halloween candy (chocolate bars and m&ms) in them too. We watched part of The Polar Express before nap time. Now they are both quiet and after nap we are going to go on a leaf gathering walk and then do leaf rubbings with colored pencils then paint and stamp them.

Not much scrapbooking or cleaning getting done but we are having a lot of fun with no squabbles!

I'm going to rest on the couch with a notebook to jot down my list of house things that need to get done and in which order.

P.S. I have been a month off on Kate's age for about a month now. She will be 20 months on the 19th, oh brother. At 20 months Kendall started sleeping in a big girl bed!!! Crazy now that I think about it but she had no problems at all. Check out all that hair!
P.S.S. If anyone is interested in receiving emails when the blog is updated let me know. I can add you to the 'mailing list' or feed or whatever it's called. Basically when I update my blog the new post arrives in your inbox in the form of an email.


  1. Okay good. When I read that Kate was 20.5 months I really started to wonder if I was wrong about Noah's age! I was just telling Nathan last night how we both moved our kids to big beds at 20 months. We were crazy!!!

    Sorry for the rough night. Hope they make up for it toight.
