2012 | P52 | Wondering


This week we are....
wondering (where our baby went???)

I totally did not mean to make Jordyn the subject of my Project 52 two weeks in a row, but it just sort of happened.  The other day I was all caught up with session editing, so I thought it would be a good idea to go ahead and do Jordyn's 5 year photos.  My schedule for May up until after the kids get out of school is CAA-RAAZZZY.  Jordyn had fun playing model, and of course getting a lollipop when she was done!

2012 | P52 | Sleepy


This week we are...

Oh Jordy....We decided about 2 months to finally drop Jordyn's naptime.  She still very much needed it most days.  Days she wouldn't nap after school, she was completely melting down by about 5pm...which is obviously too early to put her to bed.  But then her taking naps made her have problems going to sleep, even though she would be up from nap by 2:30, and wouldn't go to bed til 8pm.  She would be up til 11pm some nights saying she couldn't sleep.  When Carolyn was here she suggested we try not letting her take naps since she was here to help deal with the consequences if it didn't go well.  The first couple weeks were rough, we had to deal with a very cranky 4 year old every afternoon.  But, it slowly got better.  Some days you can see it in her eyes just how tired she is at dinner, but she fights it so hard.  The last couple of weeks her behavior starts to be...ummm, not to our standards.  So she will get sent to her room until she is ready to behave.  About half the time when I go into check on her a little bit later, I find her like this.  Passed out before bedtime (our girls bedtime is 8pm-ish, so this usually happens around 7pm).  She sleeps so much better at night not taking naps, but the poor thing is just exhausted at the beginning of the school week and then at the end.

P52 | Fifteen

This week we are....

We just got back from a very fun filled family mini vacation a few days ago.  We decided since we had been to Minneapolis a few times, we wanted to go, but do some different stuff then just going to the Mall of America (which we still did, as well as Ikea, for stuff I needed!).  We checked out the new Sea Life park and a really awesome completely indoor park, as well as a few other things.  Overall the trip was awesome, and the girls were pretty much perfect during the whole trip, as usual :)
