Current State of Affairs

This will be a brain dump of sorts. First trimester exhaustion has set in; either that or the fact that my almost 2 year old hates sleep these days. I'm not sure which is causing the exhaustion, but either way, this mama is worn out. My brain doesn't seem to be working as well these days.
So, for one, the whole room sharing thing is not going as smoothly as we had hoped. Once upon a time we had boys who went to bed by 8:00pm every night and could fall fast asleep on their own. Sigh. Those were the days. Griffin is, by nature, not a great transitioner. Moving rooms and into and a twin bed has been hard on him. So hard on him, in fact, that he has been waking up multiple times every night crying. That's all fine and dandy when you sleep in your own room. This is no good considering he wakes Grayson up every single night. At this point I'm not sure how to fix the problem except pray that he eventually gets used to the change...and that he gets used to it before his newborn baby sister arrives. Basically, our days of sleeping through the night are long gone. Jealous??
The boys had Playcation at our church this week. It was basically VBS for the preschool group & they loved it. This was kind of like a trial run for Griffin since he starts 2 year old preschool in September! It was 3 days in a row from 9:00-1:00 and they had so much fun. The highlight for Grayson was water day because he loves all of the inflatable water slides. The highlight for Griffin was petting zoo day. He cannot stop talking about how his finger got bitten by a goat. Sometimes he exaggerates the story and changes it to a llama. Either way, he learned that when you stick your hand in an animals mouth, they will probably nibble on you! Oh, Griffin.
I have been in an organizational frenzy now that Cheney has a real room. I was so glad to have 3 days this week of kid-free time so that I could actually be productive before naps. There is an abundance of tiny, pink clothes in our house and they are now organized! I still need to wash all of the baby things but I can breathe easier at least knowing that most things in the nursery are in their own place. The wooden monogram should arrive in the next few days. I can't wait to start hanging things on the wall!
