Just a note to say that I found out today that I got accepted into Georgia State University for the fall! I'm in for a world of stress, but I think it will be more than worth it in the long run. :) For the record, I plan to work full time, and have Justin watch Roxanne for me at night while I go to class. It's so nice that GSU offers night classes. UGA didn't offer anything past 4 or so. Anyways, that's a relief for me!

Not old enough for a sleeping bag

Last Friday night, we were invited to spend the night in Ariel and Luke's lovely new guest bedroom. We decided it would be fun, and we could actually stay up later than 8 or 8:30 while at a friend's house. The bad part happened when I realized that I had left Roxanne's pack and play at Josh's house. In an effort to pretend like I didn't make a really big mistake, I was all "it's fine! We'll just bring her owl sleeping bag and she can sleep on the floor!" Yeah. She didn't fall asleep for good until 11:30 pm. And that was in the "big bed." I woke up at some time in the very early morning in the bed with Roxanne and looked down to see Justin crammed into that teensy pink sleeping back, zippered to his knees, and shivering a little. Please don't tell him I told you that. But it was very endearing, and says a lot about Justin's daddy sacrifices. The lesson learned is that probably even with the pack and play (which she can now climb out of) we might need to wait a little longer before we move onto slumber parties. But on the flip side, I feel like she needs to learn to be a little less sensitive to change. She's so incredibly routine oriented, which is great, but sometimes I think she needs to have a little bit of change to help her learn to be adaptable. We'll see...

We're still trying to get back on track with potty training. But basically, Roxanne was completely potty trained for like 2 weeks. And then something happened and she basically decided that she didn't want to be anymore. Now we're sort of a mixed bag. When the mood strikes her, she uses the potty. Other times, she insists on a pull up. I'm too worn out to push it, and since she is officially the only kid in diapers at work, I'm inclined to relax a little. I still put her on the potty frequently, but if she really throws a fit, I try to let it go. I don't want to give her potty trauma... I'm sure we'll get it figured out soon.

Also, I STILL haven't heard from GSU yet about my grad school application. I'm going a little nuts... Let's hope that for now, no news is good news?

Photo overload

From our three Easters... The top set are from Easter with my family up at the Gainesville Country Club (I didn't take enough photos because our camera battery died, so the top two are stolen from my sister). She had a great time! The second set are from our Easter morning at home. The last set are from the weekend before Easter at the downtown Decatur egg hunt. Roxanne was grumpy and out of it for the most part, but it was still cute.

The photos in her brown hoodie are from the Easter Egg Hunt in downtown Decatur the weekend before Easter.
