Oh Yeah…I Have a Blog

Excuse me while I dust off my keyboard and blogger account.  Apparently, even though I’m no longer in school or teaching I felt the need to take a summer break from blogging.  I certainly didn’t intend to take a break this long, but the longer it’s been, the harder it has gotten to know where to start again! 

I last blogged about Hadley’s 17 month update and she is about to be 19 months in 2 days!  Yikes!  So many changes and updates – but the biggest is her sleep.  It’s murphy’s law of kids to not EVER talk about their sleeping habits, because as soon as you do, they change.  And sure enough, not days after I blogged about how great Hadley’s schedule was, she basically quit taking 2 naps.  We’ve tried to transition to one nap, and she will not nap longer than an hour and 20 minutes.  Total.  All day.  Going from almost 3 hours worth of naps in a day to a little over an hour has been a little hard on both of us. 

So that was the initial reason behind my blog-break.  I simply ran out of free-time during the day, and the time I did have, I didn’t want to spend at the computer because I needed to rest. 

Before I continue on with the rest of my excuses reasons, I’ll share a few pictures from my phone to catch you up.

While I haven’t been blogging, we’ve…

Been practicing yoga…

…and when that doesn’t always work, the hands get the job done, too…

…getting busted for pulling bread off the counter and snacking on it while momma wasn’t looking…

…getting her first haircut(!) 

{We just took her to the girl who cuts my hair, and she just trimmed a bit off the back because Hadley was getting a mullet.}

AFTER! (Sorry- you really can’t tell from this picture, but it did make a big difference!)  Hadley did great – she really had no idea what was going on, and she got to sit in daddy’s lap, so we couldn’t have asked for a better first cut!

celebrated Hadley’s half birthday at Chuy’s with fajitas and sopapillas…

I am loving the pictures, her haircut is super cute. I am in denial that G needs hers cut too. How did H like her smoothie? I know G loves her. Her little toes under the curtains are too cute!
