My February Pinterest project is underway! I'm making skirts for Alaia. My sister and I started yesterday and it ended with me throwing tantrums and whining about a hem. I'm going to get myself together and try again tomorrow. My mom is going to show me how to use a serger for the hem because it'll be easier. I'm very excited to see my cute little lady in her skirts when the weather warms up!

MrC went out of town for work this week and the kids decided to keep mommy company that night. Alaia decided she was hungry and Judah came running across the hall at 4. Thankfully they both went right back to sleep. I didn't even wake them up to leave. I put them in the car in their pajamas and let my ma deal with the joy of dressing a wild toddler.

I haven't had time to sit and blog at home or work because anytime a child sees me relaxing they come harass me. I only have time right now because I'm pumping.
I did my January pinterest project, it was a day planner. I made it big and sturdy because I have been losing everything lately. I kept it very simple, but next time I'll get a little fancier. On my 2014 Projects pinterest board I have links to free printable planner pages.
I'm trying to see if I can attach a video though email. It probably won't work, but let's see...

I'm about to be kicked out of my book club if I don't make some immediate changes. Let's discuss how this foolishness started. My sister and her co-worker started a book club. They are the only 2 members and were looking for a third. The premise of their club was they share the same book and pass it back and forth. I have no desire to pass a book between two people so I declined. A friend was starting a club and she wanted to read non-fiction books based on the black experience. It doesn't take much for me to get militant and angry at life, so I declined to join that club too. I decided to form my own club and I am the only member. In my book club we only read books that have been turned into movies. We have to watch the movie first and then read the book because I like to save the best for last and it also cuts down on any nightmares I might have while waiting to figure out what happens. The first book was supposed to be Friday Night Lights. I have the book, but can't find the movie online to watch it. My sister had Along Came a Spider and suggested I read that since I had seen the movie. I started reading it last night and as I was terrified and creeped out, I realized the story didn't seem familiar. A quick google search led me to realize that I thought I was going to be reading The Bone Collector. Yes, I'm really that dumb. MrC suggested I don't read either of those books because I am easily frightened and he doesn't want to deal with me waking him up at 1 a.m. because I'm scared. Today is my last chance to redeem myself before I kick myself out of my own club. I decided to go with The Hunger Games. I'm going to check and see if my library has it in stock so I can start my club this weekend.
. *2 hours later*
I had to pay my library the $6.05 I've owed them since 2012. Shameful, but I have my book! Let the book club begin!

Alaia got her ears pierced today! Of course she cried but I told her that we were going to buy her new shoes and she stopped crying and smiled. Having a daughter is super fun and we haven't even made it to manicures yet!

Judah and Alaia are very affectionate with each other and it makes me so happy! People always ask how Judah is adjusting to having a sister and I'm glad I can honestly say he loves it. One of my twitter peeps (Heyyyy Disco Diva) sent Judah a book entitled "I'm a Big Brother" and it really helped him understand the transition. He frequently quotes lines from the book and he always reminds us that he's the big brother.
Yesterday Judah was sick so he stayed home with MrC and I took Alaia to my mom's while I went to work. When I got home yesterday Judah ran to the steps to ask where his sister was. When I took her out of the seat his face lit up and he exclaimed "Hey Laia boo! How you doing?" In turn, her face lit up and she started squealing. I sat on my bed with both of them and they talked and smiled at together like they really missed each other while they were apart. I know sibling arguments will soon come, but I pray they always have moments of closeness and joy like yesterday.
