What I Learned This Week

I'm joining in on Jo-Lynne's What I Learned This Week Carnival over at Musings of a Housewife. Here are a few things that I've been taught over the last few days:
  • Our alarm is really loud. I'm surprised that it took us over two weeks in the new house before we set it off and I'm so thankful that Big Daddy was the one who did it.
  • Baby Ellie is no angel! She likes to wake up at 4 am and then stay up for two hours before going back to sleep.
  • I need more than 5 hours of sleep at night, although I'm doing pretty well with that much.
  • I'm not a beautician. I decided to trim The Muffin's hair and I cut it way too short. Luckily, she loves it and thinks it's both "beautiful and gorgeous". It's growing on me too...now if it will just grow back really fast! (maybe I'll post pictures one day...maybe)
  • Shopping with my favorite big girl is so much fun!
  • Preschool can't start soon enough for The Muffin.
  • I think God gave me two daughters just because He knew that dressing them in matching clothes would make my heart soar.

Aren't the matching clothes THE BEST!? I was so excited when I had 2 girls and could coordinate them. :-)

Here's hoping the new little addition starts sleeping better for you soon. :-)

It's funny, sometimes I hear the alarm and other times I don't. Cause it's really loud so when I don't I must REALLY be sleeping hard. LOL
And I've cut my family's hair to short numerous times but thank goodness it grows back!
Blessings,
Kim

Oh, I want another girl!! Shopping for girls is so much fun!

As for the 5 hours sleep - it's amazing how mommies can function with the bare minimum. Nap while the baby is napping - a nice idea but not always practical!!

Lovely lessons.

I can remember that sleep deprived exhaustion - hoping you get a great full night of sleep soon.

My daughters used to love being dressed to match, now they hate it!

Uh-oh! Someone got a mommy haircut! My mom gave me one of those right before school pictures one year. Yeah, thanks mom.

Love the matching clothes! Unfortunately, my two girls are almost 8 years apart and it's hard to find coordinating stuff unless I want to pay a fortune! Hope you get more sleep...my little guy went through a phase like that not long ago...it's exhausting!
