When I got there I was so so sick the entire time and barely could move, I planned to work but once I got there I realized I really couldn't do much so I kept it to a minimum and mainly laid on the couch. On the days I felt decent here's what we did! Chuck E Cheese with all the cousins, farm visits, In-n-out trips, and visits to the park of course.
Here's LOTS of photos....
And I'm just going to say that I probably have the worst sleeping child in the world! When she was a newborn from the day she was born the longest she would sleep was 3 hours (and that was on good days) and she started climbing at 8 months and could get out of her crib and when we travel she DOES NOT SLEEP. I've accepted that she has my insomnia, Landon's drive and both of our stubbornness combined and that pretty much is the only explanation of why and how she doesn't sleep. So when we got to my mom's she would climb out of the pack and play and scream at the door for hours, and she would climb on the big bed and with it being dark I was worried she was going to fall off and hit her head so the first week I didn't sleep.
One day for a nap I went in to check on her after her screaming for an hour and found her sleeping here! Seriously child, you're crazy!!! She was straight up sleeping.
We finally brought in my sister's HUGE crib and had a lot of sleepless nights and finally got her on a routine (of course when we were ready to leave). I also decided to wean her from breastfeeding at this time since it was so exhausting on its own I just decided to throw that in there too. With my surgery and boob issues, I was hesitant weaning because I didn't want it all to happen again and she was so attached to me so that was hard too, but we did it! It was sad but I'm glad that it's over with because I didn't want to be nursing weeks before I had our baby.
Every night we Facetimed with daddy and Juniper missed him so much. As soon as she heard his voice she would grab the phone and run and hide and talk to him. She also tried playing with him and would push him around in the cart and car.
My sis lives close to a dairy farm with THE BEST chocolate milk. We took all the cousins and fed the animals there it was fun!
Juniper was hesitant about feeding the animals, as was I haha, but we finally got her to hold the carrot for the guinea pigs.
The couple times I worked out in LA Juniper hung out with her aunties. She never ever lets me do her hair, but since she saw her cousins getting their hair done she wanted it too. My sis sent me this photo and I about died! She didn't keep it in of course, but it was cute while it lasted.
Fun with all her cousins!
She loved baby Blake! I was surprised how soft and good she was with him, made me realize she's ready for a baby sister!
Entertaining the baby!
Everyone loves Grammy!
We went to Chuck E Cheese one afternoon with all the cousins. Juniper was in heaven with all the rides. She usually is into slides but the one they had there had steps that were too tall for her that were enclosed so her older boy cousins all took turns lifting her up to each step, it was so sweet.
Auntie KK bought Juniper the prettiest dress with tights for Sunday and she loved it. My baby girl is getting so big!
My little daredevil rode this car down the driveway by herself and then proceeded to rolling off and scraping her face. I felt bad so I made sure to ride with her from there on out, no matter how uncomfortable it was!
Her shiner she got. :(
Daddy got home a day before us so when she saw daddy on her slide she was happy and then cried for hours for her slide lol she was definitely ready to go home, see her daddy and her beloved slide!
Finally on our way home to RI! She discovered her pockets in the airport and was really proud of herself as you can tell from her face :)
Finally home with daddy and they were inseparable! Look at these tired twin-ers! so cute.
