One crappy day
So my day started out great! 3 am and Hayden woke up to eat for the first time of the night. So I got 6 straight hours of sleep! I don't think I have gotten 6 hours since conception. So I was feeding Hayden and about 3:15 Sydney comes in my room to go to the bathroom. She pees and goes back to bed. No big deal, maybe she will sleep longer since she peed early, right? She has had a little cold for the past week and a half and had a cough with it. So I hear her coughing so I went into her room to give her some more cough medicine. I opened the door and got blasted with the smell of puke. Sydney had thrown up earlier in the night and it was all over her bed, hot dog chunks and all. Poor thing coughed so hard she puked and didn't tell me. Poor baby. So in she goes with me because really who wants to clean that up at 3am. So we tossed and turned the rest of the night which came to an end when Hayden wanted breakfast at 6. So we were up for the day. Sydney was doing much better up and around so I decided brilliant mom that I am to go ahead with the plan I have had for weeks to get family pictures done. Things are going great until my mom lost Hayden's headband that I bought especially for pictures. So postpartum sleep deprived me freaked out and ran around like a maniac trying to find the stupid headband (which we haven't found yet). We ran out of the house (with me in a fabulous mood ;) to Tempe where we were meeting the photographer Brittney. So things are fine and I am starting to calm down and Sydney starts coughing really hard again. Guess what happens next! That's right she pukes again twice all over her picture outfit (thankfully I only had the leggings and tee shirt on so her dress wouldn't get wrinkled) and the car seat! AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! Can this day be any better. Oh wait it can. We get to Tempe I strip down Sydney give her a diaper wipe once over and put on her sleeveless dress that now has no leggings or long sleeve shirt (it's cold and we are outside) and start with the pictures. My sweet baby Hayden proceeded to cry through about 95% of the pictures. I am sure the pictures are going to be wonderful! Hopefully we will at least get one family picture for my $100.
