Finally, A Nice Day

It was in the upper 60's today so I took the girls to the zoo. Emma loves going to the zoo and I think she was really happy to get out of the house. We have a pass, so in the summer we go nearly every week. Since we usually don't have a lot of money, it's nice to have something to do that's already paid for. My grandma went with us and about died from all the walking. I know what it's like too, cause as the summer goes on it gets worse and worse for me to go up and down those hills as my belly gets bigger and bigger! It was a perfect day for the zoo though!

Emma went to bed late last night and only got about 1/2 of a nap this afternoon. She was doing fine until about 6:30 tonight when she finally snapped. I made her dinner , but she wanted to color. I told her she could only color if she ate first, but she didn't like that idea too much and started throwing a tantrum. When she does that I usually just put her in her bed until she calms down. So I put her in bed with a sippy full of milk and next thing I know, she's passed out. Normally she goes down at 7:30 and I think she fell asleep right around 7:00. That's not too big of a difference so hopefully she doesn't wake me up at 6am.

I've been cleaning like a crazy person this afternoon! I don't know if anyone would be able to tell, but it's true. All I know is Scott better notice!!! I feel pretty good today even though last night wasn't too great again. I finally sucked it up and let Abby cry it out. She only woke up twice and cried for about 30 minutes each time, so it wasn't too bad I guess. I don't think it will take too long to get her back on track, which makes me really happy. Of course, as soon as she starts sleeping through the night, she'll start cutting teeth and I will have to get up anyway!
