What is sweeter than a pic of a sleeping baby?
Yes, she is 2 1/2 and I might be planning her 3 year birthday party already, but she is sooo still the baby around this house! :)
For documentary purposes:
Tatum goes to sleep about 7:30 at night and sleeps until about 9-9:30 in the morning on non school days. Most days Cade will start begging me at 8:30 to wake her up, but the poor girl just loves to sleep. I think she gets that from me, and she requires a lot of it, I think like me too. :) The girl snoozes in the afternoon for about 3 hours too. But for some reason she WILL NOT sleep at school. Those days she comes home and naps and sometimes falls asleep on the way home. :)
Sweet sweet baby!
Cade on the other hand likes a 3 hour nap in the afternoon, but is up by 7 everyday-he really always has been. Let me introduce you to all of Cades "sleeping buddies!" He sleeps with all of these stuffed people everyday and let me tell you he knows when one is missing-say possibly in Tatum's bed "hiding" under her pillow. Only a little sister would do something like that, right! HEHE
I promise I don't take a pic of sleeping beauty everyday, just some days that I can't pass up. She is wearing panties all day, but at night and nap we put a diaper on under her panties and sure enough every time we go in to wake her up she has thrown off the diaper and says "those are for babies." Thankfully she has learned to hold it and wakes up with a dry bed, but my goodness if she didn't I think I would lose my mind changing her sheets, all 5 blankets she sleeps with, and everything else in her cozy bed. Speaking of-she is asking for a big girl bed. I am not sure I want to make that transition yet, but I am thinking about it since she wants it so bad. :) I have a feeling the children will be playing musical beds once she has freedom to roam.
Lately the kids have been wanting granola cereal for breakfast most days with cut up banana. Easy for me and good for them! :)
They are cute. But I promise you they fight...like 12 times over crayons this morning. They love each other a lot too, and it makes my heart SO happy! :)
Playing at the park
Only Gigi spoils Cade so much that he gets a bite of his grilled cheese on his swing breaks. :)
Making pancakes with mommy! I promise this girl is going to know how to cook by the time she is 7 years old. She makes more meals with me than I make alone and she HAS to know what each thing is, I love her!
Cade- intently praying for everything and everybody he knows of, Tatum-can you hurry up? As she munches on her banannas. :) Cade is so sweet with his prayers, I need to video them and treasure those words forever!
I've told Cade like 100 times this week that he has been SUCH a sweet boy this week, he has told me "I love you" about 100 times everyday and is saying things like "mommy you sure made me a yummy lunch today" and "you look pretty in those Christmas jammies (yes I should put those away, but he is too funny)" and "thank you for playing cars and puzzles with me." I could go on he has just been a really sweet lil boy this week and has made me so happy!
This little priss is extra DRAMA right now and can turn the crying on and off like you wouldn't believe. :) She is pretty sweet herself though and after all , she is a girly girl- I mean what do you expect!?! :)
I am laughing so hard as I load this pic, Tatum wears dress up clothes more than normal clothes at home. This particular day the kids were dressing up as pirates off Jake and this was Cade and Tatums version of Izzie. :) I sent Jon this pic and said ghetto princess! :)
We make tents just about everyday. Living room lunch date for two-coming right up! :)
Yes-the vacuum cleaner is holding up one side of the tent-it was close by. :)
And I will leave you with a potty pic. We spend lots of time going potty. Most days there is a kid in one bathroom yelling to be wiped and as I am wiping that one the other one is yelling to be wiped. We do lots of wiping and pottying, but it beats having kids in diapers that is for sure! :)
Happy Wednesday! :)
