"When are we going to see the jammies on?"
Well, here you have it. Lots of pictures of the jammies on.
All info on clothing patterns can be found in this post.
Sweet little shoes made from this pattern available at Winter Peach.
|Headed back inside...|
I really hate to have my life be so dependent on the weather, but right now it just is. While Olivia seems to have finally gotten over her "no hats ever" policy, she's still holding strong on the the "no mittens ever" policy. Or at least she was last time I tried. But even with a warm head, cold hands make for miserable outside time. Like walks. And other fun things.
But it's not just Olivia. I haven't been interested in going out in 8 to 20 degree weather either. It's just not fun to be so cold. (My sympathies to all of you who are living in places that are even colder.)
So, as a result, we've been staying inside a lot the past couple of days. No walks. No outings. Just chillin' at home. Which is fun... for a while.
|The PJ top also looks great with a pair of jeans. :)|
But the last couple of days have brought out the not-so-fun in her and, sadly, in my life as a parent.
|"Ok Baby. You sit wite heow."|
|"No Baby. No hitting."|
But then she hits me and says "no" and laughs and I know that I'm wrong. She definitely knows what she's doing and that it's not what Mommy's asked her to do. And she thinks it's funny.
Gah. What to do?
Luckily, she mostly seems to only be naughty when she's tired. In which case it's just a signal to me that she's ready for a nap. But I think, in some ways, she's also been doing it out of boredom.
So, anyway, this is all by way of saying that today has been a much better day. First we had preschool time with lots of fun friends (not to mention a chance to get out of the house!). And then we got to go on a walk with some of our other favorite people. Lots of out-of-the-house time plus lots of running around and playing time has equaled a very much happier and well-behaved Olivia... and Mommy.
So, it may still be rather chilly out today. But thank heavens it's warmed up enough to be out and about!
P.S. This is what I mean about that dolly headband...
