Its been a whirlwind super busy week this week! I’ve been working my tail off trying to be creative with the MOPS decorations, and today was our first meeting! Everything went great! MOPS, for those of you that have asked, is Mothers of Preschoolers and its just a group of woman who get together once a month during the day and then also do things (playdates, mom night outs, etc) during the year. I’m excited about being apart of it because it will help me to meet new friends that are in the same stage of life as me!

So part of the reason, besides being swamped with a million other things to do, that I haven’t blogged much this week is because we have started a whole new routine and scratched all of our old ways here in the house. Rory slept so well for so long and then when she cut her first tooth she woke up one night and never slept through the night again. So its been like 2 1/2 months since she has slept through the night and I’m not talking about one wake-up…. I’m saying she woke up SEVERAL times screaming.

So this week, with the help of a LOT of prayer and a LOT of advice from some wonderful friends here, Rory has slept through the night again three nights in a row. And let me tell you- she’s a totally different baby now! She’s been so happy all the time and just wakes up cheerful again.

Isn’t it amazing that the God that created the universe and everything in it cares about the tiniest of problems along with the biggest of problems?! That He cares about the fact that I truly needed a night of sleep? He cares enough to send the right people in our lives at the right time (my SS class) who will pray for us and give us the encouragement and advice we needed to start over and new with our routine. Thank you God for big and small miracles!

Now its picture time! (aka the only reason you come to the blog- pics of Rory! ha!)

Well first, I would like to show off my Halloween attire for this months’ bunko! Rory didn’t want to cooperate but I had to show you the eyelashes that took 45 minutes to put on. It is insanely hard to put on fake lashes, people!

Rory is on the move and there is a lot of “no no no”s going on in the house these days.

And a lot of these faces replying to the no’s:

And there is also a lot of pulling up going on! On Monday she pulled up on her new car walker toy and pushed it a couple of steps- it was so funny watching her!

And as always, there was a lot of playing in her basket which is her new favorite toy.

“Seriously, Mom, you are embarrassing me.”

And she tried on a jacket we had gotten her forever ago on clearance for $5! Its a Columbia jacket and was SO CUTE on her!

Have a great weekend! Next week I’ll have much more time to post throughout the week, hopefully!

  1. Good job the pictures. She has the cutest extpressions. I continually am amaged at the times I see other people in those looks. The second pic with the basket is so much like some of the looks from Landon. I call it the deep thinker look. Sometimes I catch a look from Tasha or Telena and then there are times I see a little of Mother. Of course lots of looks are yours and Andy’s.

  2. How did you get her to sleep through the night again? Baylee is teething and has decided to wake up at night. She is killing me!

I love hearing from y'all! Leave a comment below!
