Ahhhh thank the lord for nap time! Sorry for the middle of the day post but seems like the only time I can get things done these days is during Ava’s nap. I’m pretty sure i’ve
vented mentioned to you ladies quite a bit lately that this toddler stage is kicking my butt! A couple months ago I remember saying this is seriously the best stage ever…she’s talking all the time, doing the funniest little things and can hang much longer when we go out running around. Well fast forward a month and shit just got real lol. This child is into EVERYTHING, the testing stage is in full effect and sassiness is on a whole other level. Not to mention she could probably work for cirque du soleil with the moves she mastered to get herself in and out of her crib last week! Thankfully after we lowered the mattress all the way down she hasn’t escaped again…but I think its only a matter of time before we have to switch her to a toddler bed. Which brings me to my next question for my fellow mamas…Ummm how do you get them to actually stay in their toddler bed?! I highly doubt when I tell Ava it’s time to go “night night” and put her in her bed she will lay down and quietly just drift off to sleep. 😉 So any tips on that adjustment would be greatly appreciated! I would also have to say that the best part of last week was the “painting” she did in her crib during nap time and lets just say it wasn’t with paint! Thank goodness that happened on daddy’s watch! 😉
Anyhow I just thought that I would share that is it not always rainbows and butterflies over here either and i’ve been pretty overwhelmed lately. I know with blogs and social media everyone posts all these perfect pictures (which is great…I wouldn’t want to follow someone who was negative all the time) but just know that we have our rough days too! We are definitely blessed but our life isn’t always perfect. You just have to laugh (have a glass of wine…maybe two;) and roll with it! Okay now on to those sweet pictures from the last couple weeks that really do make it all worth it…..
Sharing with daddy
A trip to play in the tide pools
A little cereal stealer 😉

Hanging with grandma!
and ever so focused on her game!
Ps do you guys have one of these for your iPads? The best little invention we’ve purchased. I try not to give it to her that often but its amazing when you’re on a long drive or doing dinner in a restaurant.
Hope you girls are having a great week!
