Avery and Savannah have become quite good friends since Avery has become super mobile. They spend most of the day terrorizing the house, squealing and chasing each other, leaving carnage in their wake. They love to play with each other in their bedroom, and usually leave a huge mess in their room, the living room, and the kitchen. I really should take a picture to document just how much they can do in a matter of minutes.
Savannah has become quite the jealous and attention craving sis. She has been on a nap strike the last few weeks and it is a daily struggle to get her to take a nap early in the afternoon. Most of the time, if she caves, she normally takes a nap so late that we have to waker her up and she is a grouch for the afternoon and evening and then refuses to go to bed. Then, she wakes up super early and is a grouch all morning. We are really trying to figure this out and get into a routine.
We took Savannah to get a new “big girl” bed this week. We decided on a twin over twin bunk bed that could be unbunked into two separate beds, that way we have matching beds for the girls later, but can just set up one bed for Savannah now since Avery does not need a big girl bed. Savannah has had a lot of fun picking out sheets and a comforter for her new bed. Of course, she picked out princess sheets (but I drew the line before she picked the comforter) and a hot pink ruffled comforter that will be easy to find something coordinating for Avery later, but matches the current bedding they have in their room now. Savannah is all but destroying the toddler bed (by being rough) and Avery will need it soon, if she is anything like Savannah who started sleeping in the toddler bed at 14 months. I also want some time to finally refinish the toddler bed, something I have wanted to do for the last 2 years or so. I am going to take it apart, sand it, and paint it to match the furniture in their room! I love projects.
I love being home with the girls, but I also love when I get a little time for myself. Yesterday, I was able to get out and just take a nice long run and a long shower, all by myself. I just kept running and didn’t really want to stop and head home 🙂 The weather was so nice, and Daniel was so gracious, it was hard to stop!
