Planting seeds....

Yesterday Emma spent some time with Daddy planting some flower seeds. We shall see what grows.

This blog is dedicated to today and 3 year olds. After a day like today, I must blog. All I can say is that I'm so glad the day is over. I can tell that Emma is definitely beginning to notice that her baby brother is coming and coming soon. Today was completely exhausting, tantrum after tantrum. At one point she threw up this normal? Don't think so. We started the day with a walk to the park with Tracy, Mandalay and Tre. At the park she saw baby rabbits.....eyes still closed and all! We came home.....tantrum.....ate lunch, watered her seeds.....tantrum. Tantrum (screaming so hard she threw up foam), rested for awhile with mommy, tantrum. Finally got out of the house to run an errand, tantrum. Fell asleep in car on way home, tantrum (while I made her and myself dinner and I ate my dinner). Then she finally calmed down and ate her dinner. Daddy came home. Mild tantrum. Daddy did bath time and bedtime.

Way too many tantrums. Trying to reflect on the day, of course there were moments that I wouldn't want to erase from my memory BUT it would have been sooo extremely nice to not have had SO many excruciating tantrums today.

Praying for a happier and more peaceful day tomorrow. If not for Emma and I....definitely for Wyatt. I'm sure he wants to stay in the womb at this point!

SOME things that 3 has brought.....

potty trained
amazing memory
slight manipulation
wanting to change outfits throughout the day
wanting to do EVERYTHING on her own
