This one might be the one!

I think I like the smaller one!

Hayden wasn't having as much fun as his sister.

Fall Festival Madness

Layla's preschool and our church both hosted Fall Festival celebrations this past weekend. We attended her school festival first. The highlight of this festival was the petting zoo. Layla has been asking to go to a petting zoo for months. She was super excited to get to hold and touch the animals.

The bunny was her favorite

It was very windy Saturday...her hair was a wreck!

The highlight of the 2nd festival was the 2 story slide. Layla couldn't wait to slide down, but when she got to the top she got scared. I ended up crawling to the top to talk her into going down. It was was sooo tall. Anyway, here are a few pics of us girls on the slide.

LK going up....

Sliding down.

Thank goodness this picture is can't see how scared I was...teehee!

Check out these pics

My kids look exactly the same!!!

I love this book!!

For any of you who have babies and kids...this book is wonderful, and so far it has worked for both of my kids. It's a great tool. Dr. Weissbluth made me realize how important sleep is. Kids have to eat, and sleep is just as important! Dr. Weissbluth goes into detail about sleep patterns, and how to see signs of sleepiness. I had forgotten some stuff, so I'm glad I'm reading it again.
We have been trying this with Hayden....10 weeks old tomorrow. He has been sleeping from 7:30pm until 4:30am and then going back to sleep until around 8:00am after that 4:30am feeding. It feels so good to finally get some good that I had to share this with you. We started trying to get into a schedule when Hayden was 6 weeks old, but it really didn't work until he turned 8 weeks old. The book is structured so that you can pick-up and read from the age of your it isn't just for newborns. Okay...I'm done rambling on :)
