whoops.

Well, I realized that I hadn't received a day in the life post for this week, so I got out my schedule to see whose turn it was.

Mine.

Uh, oops.  That certainly isn't going to happen by tomorrow!  So I apologize, there is certainly not going to be a day in the life post tomorrow, and you'll probably be lucky to get a post at all.  Since I'm sure you are all hanging around waiting for me to post something absolutely amazing.

HAHAHAHA.  Just kidding.  Anyway, you get pictures of my kids.  Because currently my days consist of trying to manage my high maintenance toddler while taking care of my semi high maintenance infant.

This weekend my mom took Ryann back to their place for roughly 36 hours so it was just me and Elsie (Christopher was working, duh).  Honestly?  I can't believe that I thought taking care of a baby was so hard when it was just Ryann.  I mean it is still time consuming, sort of.  But mentally the toddler is so much more exhausting.  It was ridiculous how relaxing it was to just have Elsie to take care of.  So of course we had a little photo op.

Seriously.  I know I'm her mom, but I can't get over how cute this kid is.  Love you Elsie Jo!

What a sweetheart she is! That bright raspberry pink is a great color on her :)

I hope things are starting to get a little easier for you? I know I fell into a sort of pattern after a few weeks, and things started to feel much more manageable.

Such a sweetheart! Hope the new "day in your life" transition is going well:-) I used to nanny for a toddler and an infant, phew! xoxo

Yes, when you have a toddler, babies are a piece of CAKE!!! It just feels so SILENT and peaceful when Annie is gone, even now when Luke is making lots of noise and getting into things - it's obviously not the constant questions and mental drain of a toddler. Bless their hearts, of course.

she is so cute :) and i love the blanket!

i feel the same way. my toddler is SO exhausting and i feel so much more less stressed when he is taking a nap and it's just me and my 4 month old. ugh. it's all about survival right now so don't sweat the stuff you miss or can't get to. it will all come together soon enough :)

Oh my gosh! So nice to hear someone feels the same way! YES!!! A toddler (at least mine!) is so physically and mentally exhausting! I have a 2 1/2 year old son and a 9 month old daughter... enough said. I wish I could say it gets easier, but really I think you just get more use to it. ;)
