I love mornings with the Goo. Our routine is starting to feel familiar & comforting. Morning smooshing & kisses. Diaper change. Breakfast with Yo Gabba Gabba. Play time with Mama. Love on the doggies. Wait for garbage truck by the window. A lil more Mama smooshing. New diaper. Get dressed. Then Mama starts doing all her Mama stuff around the house.
Collin has been having a rough couple of nights with sleep. He refuses to go down at bedtime & wakes up frequently. I know toddlers go through sleep regression & this is also partly my fault because I still haven't sleep trained him, but I've been wondering if maybe it's because he doesn't get out of the house enough. I know he gets plenty of exercise. We have a pretty large house, but I still can't help but wonder if he needs to exert his energy somewhere else. Collin is a high energy kid. Seriously. He can be really difficult to get a handle on sometimes. My sister had the day off today, so we decided to take him to a nearby park in hopes he could get some of his energy out while we were there. Plus, I had bought some Valentine's Day props from Target a couple days ago & the park would provide a perfect opportunity to use them.
I'm still totally on my diet, but I have fond memories of these growing up. My Gramma always had them out & my Grampa used to pick out a special message for each of us before we left their house to go home.
I have been meaning to teach myself how to use presets in Photoshop/Lightroom & finally took the time tonight to sit down & do it. Holy. Amazeballs. Batman. I downloaded a few from Presets Heaven to practice with & my excited squeals of delight woke my husband up. I edited all of these with presets, so some might look overdone. Bear with me, folks. I'm still learning.
