Well this picture pretty much sums up Chantel's evening. She's had one meltdown after another. It started with not wanting to eat dinner and Elayna ate all of hers so Elayna got a bath and Chantel had to watch (that's why Elayna has wet hair). But Sundays are always hard on them because of shortened naps and today was no exception. We had to wake Chantel for the afternoon service and she was NOT ready to wake up. Elayna caught a half hour nap during the service. But I guess it all amounts to early bedtimes tonight - and I can definitely handle that!

potty training has begun . . .

Well Chantel has begun potty training - but I'm trying to keep relaxed about it and let her decide when to use it or not. I don't want any power struggles - and think she may be a bit young for this still anyways. Elayna wasn't interested until later than this and so I'm a little hesitant to push the issue - especially with the new baby on the way.

So far Chantel does a little over half of everything on the potty and for her "jobs" she needs to have a book to get the job done!

just relaxin' . . .

Well we've had a pretty quiet new year so far. The girls both had a viral something this week which made them take extra naps and have smaller appetites but otherwise they had no other symptoms. They're back to their perky selves today and Chantel has two new molars breaking through which may have caused some of her sleepiness.

Since we were home all day, the girls decided to get in pajamas early and are taking turns putting each other to bed until dinner time.
