Life Lately: Month of May

Getting my blogging act together while trying to juggle two kids is nearing impossible these days. And is it just me or are blogs sort of like dinosaurs? I can't remember the last time I read one since Instagram took over the world. Well anyway I can always count on my mom to read it - so there's that.

Life lately has been crazy, fun, chaotic and at times stressful. Trying to keep all the balls in the air while still having freshly washed hair and manicured nails has been harder for me than I am willing to admit. However here I am admitting it. P has been really good since we brought Dylan home but she definitely knows how to test us and our patience. Trying to find an effective way to let her know we are serious sometimes has been a fine line.

I finally feel like I can mutter these words out loud without jinxing it - the craziest (and I mean craziest) thing happened the very night we brought Dylan home from the hospital. P STOPPED having night terrors. As in has now not had a single one in sixty days. It's been the biggest blessing because while I was pregnant it was something I was seriously stressing over. Dealing with her at night and a newborn. Now she still doesn't sleep all that great (still wakes crying for no dang reason) but it is not a terror and the whole ordeal lasts under five minutes. If you recall sometimes we were in her room with her for UP TO AN HOUR while she battled a night terror.

It sucked. It stressed us. I honestly wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. So I am hoping that we are well past that point now. Other than that life has just been happening around here. I am loving having this time with my family and even started taking on photography clients again so I am feeling really balanced.

So here is a photo dump of some of the things we have been up to lately
