Yesterday was the first relaxing, unplanned day the girls and I have had for a very long time. It was overcast and drizzly all day making it even better for being low key. I finally put away about four baskets full of laundry and cleared the clutter that had been accumulating for weeks on the stairs (anyone else guilty of neglecting piles there?).
We had no major meltdowns and we watched some movies, I drank a full cup of hot coffee, and we played "make Phoebe laugh." A success of a day indeed. We've been so stressed and running around with our heads cut off that I think it's been making its way down to our little ones. There have been some notsofun tantrums happening. I ordered my first parenting book (love and logic that I mentioned a bit back). I feel like I'm not disciplining well and there's been a level of disrespect that needs to be nipped in the bud. Someone (not my perfect child) called their grandfather a "poophead" yesterday. SO hard not to laugh.
Phoebe is a whopping five months old. I seriously can't believe how fast time flies. She is starting to roll completely over, can get on her belly by herself and is doing 360's in her crib. Praying she'll hold off on crawling until after the move. Phew! She is just scrumptious and so smiley and sweet even when I know she's teething. Still waiting on a little tooth to pop through...
So much is happening in these final days of the renovation that we make our way over to the house almost every day. I try and wait until late afternoon with the kids so that most of the workers have already left for the day. We are having the hardwoods sanded and prepped for stain, amongst other things. Matilda was mostly interested in the kids that were playing outside. They were a good bit older than her and she kept trying to talk to them and wave and they were stand offish. My heart. I wanted to be like, "Talk to my kid you little jerks." Don't worry, I didn't.
The girls' carpet went in! I was beyond happy with the end result. I didn't want to do any carpet, but I'm so happy with what we picked out from Atlanta Carpet West. It's low pile and grey and looks like a textured rug. In love. Bonus: super affordable. Hope you're all having a nice week!
Also, wanted to share that the adorable (and organic cotton to boot) outfits the girls are wearing are from Winter Water Factory. They were so sweet to send them over. I've always loved their brand and the quality is top notch. They are one of my go-tos for gifts. I've picked up a few of their awesome onesies at seed factory.
