Also staring: Big sister Emmersyn.

I'll put a warning out now - There are nursing photos, but no nippage or anything. I kind of slacked on pictures in the afternoon and evening - Adalyn was keeping me busy & DH was grumpy so I didn't bother with them. . .


This is actually our second nursing session of the day. She had me up around 2:30am for a quick nurse. . . The husband, who couldn't sleep last night so just stayed awake, came up around 4:15am to get ready for work and then took off. I had stayed up until around 5:15 checking Twitter and talking to my mommah, who's visiting her sister in NYC this week.


Now we're awake. *yawn* I bring Emmersyn into bed with Adalyn and I and put on cartoons while we all wake up. . .


In our morning glory. Hah. Neither of my kids look very excited to be awake - Where as I look stoked. Reality is that it was the other way!


The "I hungie" plees come from Emmersyn - So I roll out of bed and get dressed. While doing so, Emmersyn helped herself to the lotion. I knew she was doing it - I did not, however, know just HOW MUCH she was using. Whoops. So I get that cleaned up and we head downstairs. . .


Potty feet - We've officially begun potty training and she's doing pretty good. Wash up!


Potty success - So she gets a sticker on her chart and a candy corn. I head out an water the grass that's growing - Yay!

Not pictured: Gave Emmersyn a banana to hold her over until I could get us breakfast.


Medicate & change baby. Sniff said baby. Dress her & then make her life all better with a little more boob. I'm in love with how the nursing photo came out.


Time check. Stick baby in swing.


Finally - I can get myself & Emmersyn some breakfast. I get her some yogurt and milk while her PB toast cooks. Kona coffee + Pumpkin Spice Creamer = My morning heaven. I unload the dishwasher while our toast cooks. Mmm coffee & peanut butter toast.


Baby is asleep, so I take that time to get some housework done. I put a movie on for Emmersyn. Then not pictured: I step out front to unplug our Halloween decorations and the front door shuts - LOCKING ME OUT of the house with my babies AND phone in there. Oy. Oh, and there is a child proof thing on the inside of the door, so I can't have Emmersyn open it. Thankfully, I left the back door open to get some fresh air in the house after I watered the grass - So I walk around the back, through the tall weeds and in that way. Phew. Now - Back to reality. . . I clean the kitchen. I didn't realize that the dish washer had dirty dishes in it already, so I wasn't able to put all the dishes in there. . .


And then I pick up the living room. You guys, my living room hasn't been this clean in DAYS. It feels good to be able to get some things done!!


I check on the girls - And then I make a phone call to refill Adalyn's RX and I stuff diapers.


Little sister is still snoozing - So I pull Emmersyn from her movie to do something fun with her. She paints her pumpkins - Beautiful! Adalyn woke up shortly after we started, but Emmersyn was just about done anyways.


Time check. Emmersyn went back to her playroom. Adalyn is excited to get some milks! I nurse her and then we talk, cuddle and smile at each other for a bit.


I swaddle Adalyn and try to get her down for a nap - In hopes that being swaddled, she'll take a nice long nap and sleep through my friends kiddos being here. . . I browse twitter while I wait. It takes about 30 minutes to get her to sleep, and even then she was still a bit restless - So I put her in her swing, sometimes she falls asleep easier then then with me.


More plees of "I hungie" come from the little person walking around my house - So I start figuring out lunch. Just as I decide on something for us, my friend who's kids I am watching text me asking if we'd like McDonalds. Done deal batman. So I sit down and check the internets for a bit on my computer.


The kids {and lunch} get here. . . I get everybody set up at the table, and I stand & eat while making sure they all eat. Lots of chatter and giggles are had. Finally everyone ate enough and they all run off to the playroom. . . I park it on the couch and turn the TV on for the first time. The 14 month old visits me often and I play with her on and off. She was a handful with a 2 month old to take care of as well!


Adalyn did not agree with my plan and she wakes up to nurse. I text with my mommy a bit while I am nursing. . .


I tweet. Oy. And this Pepsi is MUCH needed. Not pictured: The water I was drinking between my coffee & my pepsi


Their mommah comes back and we chit chat a bit while she snuggles Adalyn before they all leave because it's nap time for EVERYONE! Mommah included. I tuck Emmersyn in and then Adalyn and I crawl into bed where she nurses and knocks right out.


Snoozy Snooze. Emmersyn had other ideas, though. I think she may be ready to phase out her nap - But *I* am not. So she will continue to have quiet time in her room in the afternoons. She actually ended up falling asleep around 4:30. In which Adalyn was awake by then and nursing more. . . She eventually settled and fell back asleep so I could catch a little cat nap.


I usually don't let Emmersyn sleep past 5:00 - But Adalyn didn't settle until like 4:50 and I needed a little cat nap to get me through the night - So we slept until 5:20 and made our way downstairs shortly after. I unload the dish washer and start to reload it. . . Not pictured: I tossed Adalyn in the Ergo, which only lasted about 5 minutes before I had to stop to nurse her.


While doing the dishes - I get a pot of water on the stove to boil. And then DADDY IS HOME!!! Emmersyn is stoked. And despite is lack of sleep last night - He came home and went out back to weed whack finally. Yay! Now I have to go out and clean the weeds up sometime soon and get it read to lay grass down!


I get the rest of dinner going, and then take a few minutes to spend more time with my big girl while Adalyn is content. We bake brownies - Something simple, takes little to no time and Emmersyn LOVES doing it with me. I think she likes the batter licking the best Once dinner is ready, Emmersyn and I eat while daddy snuggles with Adalyn and keeps her content.


Not pictured: Family time. More nursing and baby cuddles. 8:00pm rolls around & daddy takes Emmersyn upstairs for bed, then he showers & goes to bed himself. Adalyn and I hang out downstairs and cuddle some, I enjoy some brownies in peace and then she wakes again where I change her diaper & PJ her. . . She's gassy so we deal with that & then join daddy in bed. Good night!

Oh my gosh, I'm so jealous of how much Adalyn sleeps still! Ava sleeps like MAYBE an hour throughout the day and 8 hours TOPS at night. She's taking after her dad in that sense and I am *not* a fan.

I agree, that nursing picture is beautiful. Not gonna lie, its pretty depressing.

Loved a peek into your day! That nursing pic is awesome. I am majorly jealous of your potty-training success. Owen fights it tooth-and-nail!

Emmersyn wasn't a fan of her swing - So this is new to me. Hah. Some days she'll only take 30 minute cat naps in it, though. . .
