First, thank you for your sweet comments on Waverly’s big girl room!! I am constantly inspired by all of you, so it truly makes me happy to be able to share a little of what we are working on in our own home. I look forward to sharing more soon, & as always, thank you for your support! 🙂
I can’t believe that Halloween is less than two weeks away! We are even more excited than usual, not only because Waverly has her “trick or treat” phrase down pat, but also because it falls on a Friday this year (as a working mom, my dream come true!). We have lots planned to celebrate over the next week, Waverly’s kids gym party is this Friday & then we are taking her to a “boo zoo” day at our local zoo for the second year in a row. We have also been able to fit in some fun this week, we made a batch of festive cupcakes & I let Waverly have at decorating them herself. Dangerous yet so much fun!
She was so proud of her little self, this was the first time I let her completely go for it all on her own & she couldn’t have loved it more. We would be baking everyday in her perfect world!
Also this week, we have had a few rough nights on the sleep front. I can’t say it surprises me, I should have known once I publicly proclaimed how well things were going that it would come back to haunt me. 😉 Waverly has been putting off going to sleep just about every way that she can, calling us back in every few minutes for anything she can think of. She asks us to bring her extra juice, another book, to cover her again with the blanket, or far most common, lets us know she has to use the potty (smart girl). The other night I was completely exhausted, had gone in there about 20 times when she started screaming again around 2am. I seriously could have cried, all I could think about was my alarm going off at 5 the next morning & was giving myself a really big pity party. I went in Waverly’s room & she asked me to cover her back up with the blanket, then she looked up at me with the sweetest face & said, “mommy, I love you, good night” as she turned her head to go back to sleep.
I lost it as I came back down the hall to our room, crying alligator tears to my husband for longer than I am willing to admit. 😉 I just could not get her little voice out of my head or the fact that she just needed her mama for a minute. Waverly is acting like such a big girl these days that I often forget she is still so little & most importantly, needs me as much as ever. I’ve said it before & I realize it more with each passing month, the days are long but the years are short. I think I will remember that “little moment” forever, this little lady is truly my whole heart, I love her something fierce. 🙂
We hope you are all having a fun week!
