We’ve had a morning over here. Jo has transitioned to her big girl bed after climbing out of her crib, so we’ve been navigating that and haven’t been getting a ton of sleep. Locking her in her room for sleep works really well, so I think we’re just going to have to keep her door locked all night, instead of just locking it while she falls asleep at bedtime. Then this morning, after being up since 4am with Jo, Ella knocked over a floor lamp on top of herself (it wasn’t heavy and she’s perfectly fine…although no one enjoys seeing something falling towards them with no way to stop it so she was rattled) and while I ran to help her Maggie ate my breakfast off the kitchen table that I had just made. While annoyed with Maggie I hear Andrew say, “oh no!” (in a way more distressed tone than usual)…to which I run over to Jo’s room and see that we’d left a snow globe Jo has (and loves) within Ella’s reach and she’d grabbed it and shattered it into huge glass shards and I have no idea how she didn’t cut herself badly. This all coming days after friends asked us, “did y’all babyproof your house?” And we nonchalantly said, “no it’s been fine.” Phew. All of this happened within 2 1/2 minutes.

Today is an at home day with the girls for me so I’m looking forward to getting out in the sun with this, playing whole house hot lava with Jo during Ella’s naps (I saw it mentioned on this blog’s comment section and it sounds awesome), and I just chopped all my hair off so I’m hoping to get a pocket of time to play around with styling it…TBD.
