Busier than ever

Wow, I thought once we moved I would have my time back! But I have been busier than ever! It's frustrating because there is so much I want to do with my day but all of my time is eaten up with cleaning! Somehow my daughter is messier at my mom's than she was at our old place. I'm having a very hard time keeping up! Also, she wants to spend every second outside, so I am often on watch because we have no fences.

But I am not complaining by any means! Busy life is good! Hannah is finally back on track with the potty. FINALLY! She has been in underwear full time for 3 days now and hasn't had an accident since the first day. Such a nice relief! I knew she could do it! :)

Maxy has decided that he doesn't like sleeping through the night any longer. He is back to waking up every 4 hours! He's been in his own room now for a few weeks which has been nice, but still not sleeping all the way through. About a week ago I started him on cereal at dinner time, hoping it would sustain his appetite long enough to sleep the night, or at least to just get up once, but so far it hasn't made a difference. I know all babies are different and he will sleep through the night soon enough!

My mind has been racing lately too with ideas about my future. For the first time I actually have a goal in mind that I am excited about! Once I do some more research, I will be sure to write all about it.

For now I must go, Max has awoken from his little nap and is looking for some loves! Can't say no to that!

A Letter to Hannah

Dear Hannah

Today you are three. I don't really know how this happened. Did I say you were allowed to do that? You are growing up so quickly, I demand you slow down! What? You can't? Oh dear...

You truly are an amazing little creature. You are so beautiful, and you are absolutely hilarious! I am so lucky that I can call you my own :) I brag about you you know! I make sure everyone knows that you are MY little girl! They are all so jealous ;)

Three years ago you came into our lives a little earlier than we expected, and since then our lives have been forever changed. Forever better because of you! You brighten up every day :) Of course, you sure know how to push our buttons! I keep meaning to get those ears of yours checked... they might be broken :P

This year you became a big sister. It feels like just yesterday you were a little baby in my arms, and now you are helping mommy with your baby brother. Again, stop growing so fast.

Even though I have been at it for 3 years, I am still learning this mommy game. Thanks for being such a good teacher. I may make mistakes, and you may not always like me, but I am trying my best, and everything I do, I do because it is what is best for you.

Can't wait to see what this life with you and your brother has in store for us. It's been such a great ride so far! :) I love you little lady. Your smile is infectious, so don't ever stop! Let's have the best third birthday anyone ever had! You deserve it <3
