Before finishing lesson plans..



Tonight as I was getting the girls ready for bed, I noticed the Karly felt warm. Then it hit me that I had that nagging feeling all day that something was off about her. It's odd how you learn that. Donald said I had mentioned earlier this morning that I thought she was getting sick but just took it as me being an over-worrier. Which I am 99.9% of the time. Tonight her temp was 102.7. I gave her motrin, called worked to tell them I was coming in late and then called her dr to leave a message that I would be there in the morning but that's all I can do. I hate when they are sick. There is nothing I can do about it. I can't help it or make it better.

Today we left them with my mother in law so we could run to home depot and get some lunch. They live downstairs so we didnt' have to take them out in the 10 degree weather but we needed to get out. It was nice but we felt like we were forgetting something. It's crazy that they've been in our lives for a little over a year and yet are a permenent fixture, something that has been there all along.

I'm thinking I need to start blogging regularly. I recorded so much by blogging and now I'm forgetting to blog and thus forgetting everything.

One thing I want to blog about tonight is Katie saying "hug" LOVED IT!

They are becoming so much more affectionate now. Today when I was making lunch, Katie ran up behind me and hugged my legs then looked up for a kiss. It was so sweet. She is such a cuddle bug. I havent' figured out Karly yet haha. She doesn't like to be hugged a bunch, or kissed a bunch. Doesn't give kisses or hugs, doesn't like to be held. Likes to be left to her own. I want to squeeze her all day but she hates it so I guess we just let her be.

Katie has been sleeping better and better. When she was in the crib, she would wake up at 4. Now it's getting later and later. This morning she got up at 6 and got in bed with us and then we all slept until 830. How beautiful is that!

We moved the girls to toddler beds!!

We moved the girls to toddler beds. First we set up one bed for Katie. Karly didn't want anything to do with it the first night, but the second she wanted to sleep with her sister. They slept this way all night.

The next day we bought and set up the second bed and the day after, I put them in their own beds and when I came back in, I saw heartwarming and made me fall in love with them all over again.

Then we bought them big girl bedding. They have been sleeping in their big girl beds for 2 weeks and they are 18 months old on Thursday. Everyone thought I was nuts but Katie wouldn't sleep in the crib anymore and you have to listen to your children and your gut, right?
The girls are growing so fast, becoming so smart and are so beautiful. I don't think I could be any more blessed than I am right now.
