we've been in our tiny little temporary house for 2 weeks now...and it's been fun times 2 (or 4) :)
The first week we were all battling a cold, so we didn't do much, but this week has been a little more exciting and fun- we've kept ourselves a little busier and we've been enjoying a few of the perks to living in town. It's been a little harder to keep the kiddos entertained, though, in a small place, so, we've had to get a little creative...
the twinnies have even had to get new jammies, because their room is a lot warmer than the basement. Surprisingly, though, they seem to be sleeping fairly well- even without their dark little basement cave. Naps aren't as good as they used to be, but bedtime doesn't seem to be as affected.
I think out of everyone, Hailey has been enjoying the closer quarters more than anyone else. She's had a lot of fun playing with the babies and playing "matching" with them :) She's been a good little helper and a joy to have around. Nap time and rest time have been kinda difficult, since Hailey and Jack share a room and I have been missing my little amount of alone time that I get each day, but so far it hasn't been too bad. We've kept our peace- for the most part :)
some of the best parts of the house have been the m's getting cuter and cuter. Maysen's been giving lots of hugs to everyone, especially her little sister :) It's so cute. Maelle's not a huge fan of it, but she giggles through it, most of the time. Hailey and Jack, on the other hand, love it. Both of the girls have been starting to say a few more words, too. Their personalities get crazier and crazier as the days go by and we love to watch them learn new stuff, even if it's crazy and wild and gets them in a lot of trouble!!
Our little temporary house has been fun. It's been adventurous. It's been a big test of my patience and love. Today the kids and I tried to make muffins and the kitchen is so small and there is so little counter space that we had oats and flour all over, a spilled cup of coffee, a drowned cell phone and ended our super fun time of muffin making with time outs for everyone- mommy included :) I think that the next few months will be a time of growing on mommy's part and a little bit of fun on the kiddos part.
