homemade goodness

Our morning

Our mornings have been rough. At least for me they have been. The lack of sleep is catching up to me. Waking up after only a few hours of sleep to a whiny toddler and screaming infant is not a fun way to start the day.  This morning was no different. I’m really hoping Stone starts sleeping better at night soon. I’m not sure how much more sleep I can lose w/o losing my mind! I don’t mind getting up a few times a night… but this every hour stuff is for the birds! Yet I try to make the best of it. And I always put a smile on my face for my munchkins. (notice Martha on the right?)

Pez Dispensers
(remember those things?)
I think I was more excited than her when I found a Cinderella Pez Dispenser.
She loves it, and ate all the candy in about 2.5 secs!

Little Man is growing too fast!
I told Craig the other day: “If Stone was our first born… we would not have had another child”
This is a true statement. I’m not sure if it’s more stressful because I have a high strung toddler running around, but I do not remember being this exhausted and getting this frustrated when Adelyn was little. Some times I feel like I’m being pulled in a million directions. Stone’s fussing, Adelyn’s hungry, dishes are piling up, Craigs work clothes aren’t clean. It’s moments like these that I really try to step back, take a deep breath and soak it all in… because at some point… in the far far future, I will miss these moments. He’s already sitting up in his Bumbo seat.. Next thing I know he’ll be running around with his sister.


Yet, instead of napping and catching up on my sleep while the munchkins are sleeping.. This is what I do: I craft. Don’t judge me!

Jar Pin Cushions:


A bow for my Cinnamon Milk:

023see how I made the bow check out this post.


Pee Pee Tee Pee
(yes, it’s what you think it is)
This goes you-know-where while changing a diaper so you don’t get peed on. So far it’s worked great!
I seen these at a little boutique shop last summer and thought they were way cool… but not for 15 bucks! (or were they 20?) Then Stone peed on Craig the other day, and I remembered the Pee Pee Tee Pee from last summer and knew I had to make one.


Bath Time:

Evenings are just as hectic as mornings here too.
But how can you not just stop in amazement at a toddlers imagination

Fingerpaint Soap! Yes… how neat! Adelyn loves this.
She thinks it is “sooo cool” that she can paint on the walls and her body w/o getting in trouble ;)


Hoping ya’ll sleep better tonight than I know I will!
