Hello from the East Coast! We’ve spent the last few days in sunny Florida visiting some friends and soaking up the sunshine. Brian and I have bright red sunburned backs to prove it! Ha! I’ll have more photos to share soon, but in the meantime I’ve shared a few over here. We may “accidentally” miss our flight home, because this 80 degree weather is heavenly! 😉
I’m stopping in today to share a few photos that we took last weekend and to talk about bedtime. There was a time that I dreaded bedtime. After the kids were asleep, it was wonderful, but getting the kids to bed tested my patience a bit. I swear, 4:59pm hits and BAM, the witching hour begins. 😉 We start counting down the minutes until Brian gets home…aka reinforcement arrives! Ha! While the witching hour is still in full force, we’ve since improved our evening routine and I look forward to our nighttime shenanigans! (And not just because it means a little peace and quiet at night, ha!) Here are a few of our favorite tips and items to make bedtime smooth sailing:
Take a Bath. The girls always start to settle down in a warm bath. Now that Addie can sit up, the girls love taking baths and playing together. When we surprise them with a bubble bath, they light up! We love JOHNSON’S® baby BEDTIME® bath and JOHNSON’S® baby BEDTIME® bubble bath and wash. (We’ve used this brand since Ellie was born and to be perfectly honest, it’s our favorite!) Addie will usually end up with bubbles all over her face, which sends Ellie into a fit of giggles.
