ONE: The weather decided to warm up again this week, which made it official, it’s maxi dress season!! Maxi dresses are totally my thing, I own way more than one person ever should but I am addicted to how carefree & easy they are. My mom found Waverly Maye one of her own at Target this week, I can’t even handle how much I love it & her it in, of course.
THREE: I was sad taking all my Easter decorations down the other day, so to cheer myself up (& cheer the house up), I ordered this colorful garland. I can’t wait to hang it on our new fireplace & think the bright colors will make it perfect until the end of summer!
FOUR: Waverly’s love of puzzles is at an all-time high, she is obsessed! We got her this ABC puzzle for Christmas, but it was a little advanced for her until the last few weeks. She can now do it pretty much on her own, which amazes me everytime! I love watching her learn & progress lately, this age really is the best.
FIVE: We have spent many afternoons outside this week, making up for all the lost time over my coldest spring break ever. We brought back out the bubbles from last year, Waverly still loves them just as much but now, prefers to do it all on her own. She’s got the wand motion down, but we are still working on the “blowing” part. Instead, she just puts her mouth right on the wand & gets extremely frustrated when no bubbles magically appear. It’s a tough life being a toddler.
Speaking of toddlers, we have officially moved into the time-out phase of parenting (not my favorite or my strongest point). I have been putting Waverly in her crib (I think that’s where I failed) & walking out for a minute or two after these real deal tantrums we have been seeing lately. During our outside time this week, I was so excited to treat her with her first popsicle of the season. She loved it, so much so that she walked right back inside to the fridge to get another. When I didn’t let her, she naturally fell to the ground screaming & kicking, which I then followed with kneeling down to ask her if she needed a time-out. She quickly responded with the happiest yes, & went running upstairs to her crib still covered in the red popsicle juice from her treat. I didn’t want to back down then, so there she was, happy as a clam “bump”-ing up & down in her crib. Obviously getting red stains all over that beautiful Pottery Barn bedding. I showed her. 😉 Advice is welcome, I love this “spirited” girl so much yet she definitely keeps me on my toes!!
Happiest weekend to you all!!!
