Just call me crazy

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kari @ 9:33 pm
The girls and I had a “mirror photo shoot” this afternoon. Haidyn wouldn’t take a nap, and I was getting bored trying to entertain the little rascal; thus the decision to take some pictures, just mommy and Haidyn. When Irelynd woke up from her nap, she wanted to join in the fun. At one point when Irelynd and I were taking pictures, she asked me, “mommy, what we doing?” Good question. Chalk it up to four months of sleep deprivation, or possibly the fact that I’m just a little bit crazy…most likely the latter! :-)
The serious pose!
“Mommy, what we doing?!”
Irelynd and Haidyn are really in good hands…I promise!

Happy Birthday Taylor!

Oh Haidyn

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kari @ 11:02 pm
After sending Irelynd off to school this morning, I headed out with Haidyn to a function at our church. I dropped Haidyn off in the church nursery where there were close to ten other little babies, and five or so workers (including a sweet, brave, old man). I was in my meeting for maybe thirty minutes, when one of the nursery workers kneeled beside me and said “are you Haidyn’s mommy?” I followed her out into the lobby where she proceeded to tell me that Haidyn had been crying basically since I had left, and they had “exhausted all their options in trying to soothe her.” When I walked into the nursery, at least half the babies were crying; but the screaming was coming from no other than…yep, you guessed it, Haidyn Grace!  The sweet old man, bless his heart, was sitting in a rocking chair holding my screaming baby, patting her back (like that was going to help), and rocking like mad trying to get her to calm down. I took her from the poor, frazzled man; apologized profusely, and made a mad dash to the “nursing mommies room.” I knew it was a lost cause when Haidyn wouldn’t even calm down enough to eat. Frustrated and embarrassed that I couldn’t even get my own child to calm down, I ended up loading her in the car and heading home. Of course she fell right to sleep when I started driving, and when I got home and took her inside, she gave me the biggest smile as if to say, “I win again mommy!” Jon summed it up tonight in such a nice way, “she’s a brat Kari, she’s a brat!” Great.
