Having 2 toddlers so close in age is a challenge no doubt and CHAOS is a good way to describe it.
Ty slept in his bed all night last night. He did need some attention every few hours. Sort of like he wants to make sure we are still here and that all is ok. Jeff and I are working in shifts because even though Jeff is tired he is still not on our time schedule either. So at 2 or 3 am he is wide awake.
Ty seemed to be getting closer to our schedule today and I am praying that tonight will be a night full of sleep for this family of 4.
I don't know why but when I see Lily and Ty together the words "the littles" comes to my mind. So "the littles'' are done with their honeymoon and they have entered the real world of being siblings.
They are still so funny because Lily runs in Ty's room this morning to give him a wake up call.... she practically stands on his head, kisses him, hugs him, turns the light on, and yells WAKE UP TY BABY.
You can just imagine how well the Ty Baby likes this.
Ty and Lily are laughing with each other one minute and pushing each other the other minute. Ty actually never pushed Lily until she did it to him about 3 times. Then he thought that was the norm and decided he could push her right back. The waterworks begin for her and then five minutes later they were running around laughing with each other.
At one point tonight... Ty let out the biggest cry... he was irritated to be sitting at the dinner table..
Well Lily decided she needed to do the same... because (in her words) he scared her....
It was a symphony of cries.... we should have grabbed the video camera for this memory.
Jeff held Ty and Lily was in my lap... they were both crying the loudest of cries and Jeff and I were just laughing our heads off. For some reason it was just comical.
I think it is safe to say that life will never be quiet, boring, or uneventful with these 2.
I was able to get out of the house for an hour and 1/2 this evening to get my hair done.... it was so sweet when I came home because I heard Lily yell "MOMMY MOMMY and then Ty try to say MAMA MAMA just as loud and in the same tone..... they both came flying down the stairs and hugged me.
Sure made my day...
In addition to the fact that Ty loves for me to take his picture.... he might even like it more than Lily..... the verdict is still out on that....
