spring cleaning

I rearranged furniture and cleaned clutter from 11am to 7pm yesterday. With frequent breaks to change diapers, help Anika, and feed one or both kids of course. In the winter we only heat half of our upstairs to save on gas. Our bedroom is on the cold side though so we moved our bed and dressers to the "office" for the winter. Now that it's warming up (sort of) I wanted to put things back where they belonged. Anika's toddler bed is also the crib and it was time to give it to Emily. So, the king sized bed and 2 dressers went across the house. The queen sized bed went to Anika's room (the frame makes it too tall for her so it's just the box springs and mattress), the toddler bed/crib into my room, and some toys and the changing table into the office. Now I just need to find all the parts to put the crib railings on.

Here is Ani's room (she literally oohed and aahed when she saw it)

and the office/playroom

splashing fun

It's too rainy to walk or go to the park, but we took advantage of a short break in the rain to do some splashing.

3 weeks now

Miss Emily is now 3 weeks old and getting cuter by the day. She is awake more and more and she makes the funniest faces and noises to the entertainment of all :) Adjusting to life with a toddler and a newborn has it's moments. Evenings are still rough because Anika's bedtime is Emily's fussy time. Eric is working the swing shift now so he works 4pm until the wee hours of the morning. Anika is getting her last 2 year molar so she's been a little cranky at times. She'll say owie and pull my finger into her mouth to chew on. Her potty training regressed a little when Emily arrived, but we're back on track with that now. Our wonderful neighbor took pictures of all of us yesterday. I am looking forward to seeing all of the photos, especially after the preview she posted on her blog here

Both of my girls are asleep now so I had better wash up the dishes and get to bed while I can :) Here is a little thing I put together today during nap time.
