Monday hasn’t been kind to me so far. I’m trying to snap myself out of the post-weekends blahs but as of yet I’m not doing too well. I even called and cancelled Ember’s well baby checkup appointment for this afternoon because keeping my kids well behaved when at the doctor’s office is one thing that peaks my stress level in record speed.
Speaking of Ember, that girl is the light of my life. Truly. She makes me a better person, a better mother, a better human being. I want her to be my baby forever. I never want mothering her to end. I love everything about her 🙂
And Payson has actually been super sweet lately. His entire life he’s spent the vast majority of his time screaming or crying or whining or destroying stuff. Now he spends a lot of his time chatting happily. Though he still destroys a lot of stuff 😛
Today, though, I have so little patience for him. I know I’m the one being unreasonable but I’m just exhausted. He cries a lot lately for his binkies and I’m trying to wean him to only night use. It was going really well for a few weeks but this week he’s been begging to have his binky all day. I don’t know what to do. He cries NONSTOP if he doesn’t get his binky.
I hear Ember waking up from her nap. She took a really long nap this morning and I actually debated going in and waking her up to see her smiling face. I missed her. She is so sweet and innocent, sometimes when I’m feeling sad she’ll start to cry to nurse and I’ll take her in my bedroom and lay on the bed with her. Her beautiful eyes lock on mine the entire time she drinks and melts away any bad mood I was in. Babies are such a gift ♥
