Being a girl mama

Is pretty much the best thing EVER!
Yesterday, I took the girls to the splash pad.  Adi had to stay in her stroller with a towel over her.  I wet a onesie to keep her cool.  I didn't put it on her!  I just used it to wipe her face, hands, and feet.  She was so happy the whole time.  I am extremely grateful for that.  Monday she got VERY sick.  If she was awake, she was screaming.  I took her to the doctor on Tuesday and found out she has a pretty nasty ear infection.  She was also terribly constipated despite all of the karo syrup and juice.  FINALLY, Wednesday morning, she filled 2 diapers... oh how we love when our babies poop as mamas of infants. :)  By last night, she was pretty much back to her happy smiling self.  She's now had 5 doses of antibiotics and it really seems to be helping.

Bailey is a challenge these days but she is OH SO SWEET when she wants to be.  She absolutely ADORES Adilyn and is such a good big sister.  Of course, I didn't take the camera to the splash pad yesterday, but there will be MANY more opportunities to go this summer.

Yesterday, I was bored and decided to look at Halloween costumes for the girls.  If I can find something inexpensive enough, I think Bailey will be Doc McStuffins and Adilyn will be Lambie.  If you haven't seen this cartoon, it's just adorable and Bailey's new favorite.  I am NOT a fan of Halloween but now that I have 2 girls I want to dress them alike or "themed" :).

OK, here is a collage of what I looked like before I got pregnant with Adi, and the pictures in green are from a couple weekends ago. 

We have 3 days of school left and I CANNOT wait. 
I hope you all have a great summer.

A few thoughts...

~ I hate the new blogger lay-out.  If anyone knows how to find the dashboard, PLEASE share.  I can't figure out how to find the blogs I follow.
~I finished a novel this week.  I started it last Friday and finished it on Tuesday.  I'm embarrassed to share this next part (due to my career choice) it's the longest novel I've ever read at 368 pages!  I know, I know.  It's not that I don't like to read, it's just that I HATE starting something new.  But, this book is SO good.  It's a trilogy and the 3rd one comes out in November.  It's called Matched.  The 2nd one is called Crossed (which I hope to start this weekend)  and I don't remember what the 3rd one is called.  It's about a Utopian society and... welll...just read the synopsis!  It's a great book!  I can't wait to read the other 2.
~Our Adi is 12 weeks old today.  Almost 3 months!  Can you believe it?  I'm still amazed that I thought I would be pregnant FOREVER.  She is just adorable.  She still won't sleep through the night but she is doing a lot better.  We are only up 2 times instead of 3 and Tuesday night, she only woke up once.  She still sleeps in a playpen beside the bed.  I'm doing good not to put her in bed with me but moving her to her own room is hard...
~I know I had more to say but can't think of it now :)

I've never done this before but I'm linking up with Kelly this week.  My name is Melody.  I'm 30 years old, I have 2 beautiful baby girls.  Bailey is 4, Adilyn is 11 weeks.  I teach eighth grade English in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  I'd love to make more friends.  I'd also love to make this post longer but my 4 year old is begging to play Doc McStuffins on :) 
Hope to hear from you soon!
