I may have mentioned a time or two that my best friend is moving to Texas. I took some family pictures for her extended family before she leaves, and I wanted to share a few of them with y'all. They're so sweet and precious and all of them are some of my dearest friends. I keep wanting to write a post on here about Courtney and how I'm going to miss her, but then I start ugly-crying. And everyone knows you can't blog while you're ugly crying. You can eat lots of ice cream, but not blog.
Also, I have a question for all my wise blog-readers. I'm struggling big-time with Jayci right now. I'm convinced she's entered her "terrible twos" early. It's ridiculous really. For the past 9 months or so, we've simply brought Jayci upstairs and laid her in her crib, where she would happily go to sleep for her naps and for bedtime. For the last 3 days, however, she has screamed "mommy hold-you' and "daddy hold-you" alternately, every single time we put her down. She did it for over an hour yesterday (with me going in to calm her down - and the second I pick her up, she's fine and falls asleep on me) and never fell asleep (which led to a pretty miserable afternoon/evening behavior-wise). For the last three nights, we've resorted to rocking her to sleep -- but that's a time-consuming process that we wont have the luxury of while we're at camp. So what do we do? Help, seriously y'all. I'm a hot mess.
