Easter weekend...4/7/12

We went to Roosevelt for Easter weekend.  I am so in love with this picture of Zealynn and her daddy!  She was getting a little fussy and Kev said, "let's just try to see if you will lay down.  So she just laid there, but then as soon as Kev put her binky in her mouth, she closed her eyes and fell asleep.  I love her little hand on his arm.  Too bad  Kev had to go to the bathroom 15 minutes after she fell asleep! dang!

 So I know this pic is sick of me, well, all of these are.  But they were way too cute to not post.  I must really love our baby girl. :)  So, it was Zealynn's first time dying easter eggs!  I think I was more excited then she was.  haha! I did this face below because usually her eyes get as big as mine are when she's starring at something new. lol  Here we are with Kiley (Kev's youngest sister.)

 I'm trying to give her the holder to hold.

 She has a very hard grip and when she was holding onto it, she wouldn't let go and I was scared the dye would get everywhere so I took her hand off it...
 and she got mad at me. lol.  We love her sweet little cry face.  That lip just kills us!  So cute!

 Easter Sunday, April 8th:  we went to Grandma and Grandpa's Todd.  Here's 2 of their 3 great grandchildren.
Love her Easter dress and her face! Kev ran up to hug his girls and squeezed really tight and look at Z's face! ha! It looks like she is going to pop!

 Love these family pics! :)  She was so happy! Holding her easter eggs! :)
 Grandma Carla, Aunt Kiley and Zealynn

Oh my goodness she is such a doll! You are so sweet to say I am "mommy pro" because I couldn't feel further from that! I feel like I have no idea what the heck I'm doing! Just wanted to let you know that both Daci and Livvi were like Z. Livvi wakes up after 45 minutes almost every single nap (Daci was the same way)! It kinda makes me crazy because Street would sleep 2 hours for 3 naps if I let him, but I have to keep them on the same schedule so I let him go another 45 minutes and then get him up and then they go back down at the same time for their next nap. So she is getting way less sleep than he is for naps. But, I have learned that every baby is different in how much sleep they need. Livvi needs much less sleep than Street. She is happy as can be on 45 minute naps, where Street on the other hand starts freaking out after just an hour of being awake. He needs a lot more sleep to be happy. So, I guess I would say that if she is happy on 45 minute naps, thats probably all she needs. Is she getting a lot of sleep at night? I hear that at 3 and 4 months they need 14-14.5 hrs of sleep in a day. My babies get about 11 at night, from 7 or 8 to 630 or 730 (not in a row, they get up once at about 2 or 3 am), and the Livvi gets another 2.5-3 with naps. Streets gets another 5 or so with naps, so he sleeps more than the avg. Anyway, I don't know if that helped at all. And like I said, I am no pro so I don't even know if this is good advice :) The sleep thing is the most maddening thing about babies for me! I don't function well on no sleep and I also don't function well without a schedule, so when Livvi throws it off I get really frustrated :) If they weren't twins, then it wouldn't be thrown off at all because her 45 minute naps would be my schedule, but I have another baby thrown in there too :) Good luck with it all! i know it is so frustrating. If it makes you feel any better, it doesn't matter how many kids you have, you still feel like you don't know what you are doing, so you aren't alone! I love reading your blog and I love that we have been able to stay connected! Thanks for all your comments on my blog!
