We’re Potty Training.

{enter terrified face here}

You read that right. We’re potty training. And surprisingly, Little Lady is doing awesome…. for the most part. We decided it was time to start potty training last week. I was answering some emails and Hayden ran into our room, apparently I was in the zone because I didn’t even notice that she didn’t have a diaper on until she squatted down right next to me and peed on the floor. LOVELY! We went to target RIGHT THEN and grabbed ourselves a “little lou”, some prizes from Target’s $1 section and Hayden picked out some super cute Frozen undies.

After requesting some potty training advice from my facebook friends we decided to go with the whole put her on the potty every 30 minutes system. Now this really only works, I think, because I’m home with Hayden all day right now.. and I don’t have any other babies. So, if we did decided to have another one (stay tuned for my post – Why the number of Children I have is none of your business – it’s coming!) I don’t think that this system would work out so great. But as of right now, it works for us. Hayden doesn’t talk all that much, so she doesn’t say “potty” she just runs over to it. So she definitely knows when she has to go. And so far, we’ve only have a couple accidents in our undies. She still wears diapers at night and we use pull-ups while were running around. Hopefully this continues to be easy-peasy. I’ll let you know ๐Ÿ˜‰

Potty training, to be continued…

20140722-235524-86124114.jpgSo.. we got an ergo carrier today and this is what our day has looked like ๐Ÿ™‚ I so wish we would’ve started this when Hayden was a newborn!! We had a baby bjorn and I HATED it! So we just stopped, instead of just trying a new one! Ugh! Well, I got this from a mommy group I’m in for $20! This carrier new is over $100!! SCORE! And it’ll hold her for a while longer ๐Ÿ™‚

One day, my girl will be grown. And she won’t want me to hold her anymore. But today, today she wants mommy to hold her all day long. And I’m loving every second!

mommy & me

Our little lady is a rise with the sun kind of gal.. and if you know me, I do not function well before like 9:30 and not until I’ve had my coffee. The past week or so Hayden has been waking up at 6am.. shortly after the sun. Now this would be ok if we were still giving her 2 naps during the day but we’ve cut back to 1 which means that she gets awfully crabby either when we push her nap later.. or when were trying to keep her up til her bedtime, which is 8-8:30pm. Last night we decided to trick her little brain by covering her window with a curtain … and would you look at that it’s 8:40am and shes still sleeping! – And literally right after typing that I hear “mamaaaaa” coming from her room LOL!

Life & Motherhood

 

20140514-120447.jpgWell, we just got back from 9days in California. It was a great trip! So nice to sit back for a little, relax and not have to jump back into the car to drive home. It was also great to have enough time to see most people. I missed that.

Choosing your Daycare!!

I think it’s no secret to say that choosing a place, or person, to look after your child while you are at work is one of the most painful, stressful and exhausting processes! I know it has been for me!

Hayden is the luckiest little lady there ever was.. She really does have the best daddy out there! Here’s a couple photos of them/him helping me get ready for Hayden’s Arizona Birthday Party! They were playing dress-up in Party City and Daddy was even helping me decorate Hayden’s Purple Cupcakes!! I’m so thankful to have such an amazing Husband! He is my rock. And I’m not sure I could be the mother I am, or person I am without him by my side, cheering me on! I love you Sean-Patrick!
