early riser

i was totally blessed when connor slept through the night at 7 weeks and basically has been an INCREDIBLE sleeper ever since. little did i know that parker would revert back to newborn status at 2 and half years old. last night he was up at 1:00, 3:00 (and didn't fall back asleep until 3:30) and up for good at 5:30am. awesome. this usually means a LONG day for me with a very fussy two year old.

surprisingly, the morning went well with little to no fussiness from P. this was good for me because i was already stressed out about the birthday party they were having for a boy in parker's class and parker's whole egg allergy issue. but i sent him on his way with two very special EGG FREE cookies with icing and halloween sprinkles on top. i'm always worried that he'll feel left out and different, so i try to outdo the cookies all the other kids get and just make him feel extra special instead. icing and sprinkles usually do the trick!

here's a picture of an "airplane" parker drew before heading off to school. i LOVE this easel we just got from Ikea for $15!!!

poor connor gets woken up every morning from his nap to be put in his car seat when we take parker to preschool.

the day was going great until THIS:

somehow putting this plate of food on the table totally started a HUGE meltdown. huge tears and no words coming out meltdown. seriously, i know the fruit was canned just this ONE time (we pretty much always eat fresh).....still no clue why the meltdown. so i just ignored P and a few minutes later he sat down and ate the whole sandwhich. welcome to the terrible 2's!

and look who's got two new friends.......he wa telling them all sorts of stuff today!

finally got a pic of the boys in their other big/little brother my boys!

off to put the kiddos to bed!
