#weverb12 I <sacrifice> mobility so that someone can sleep for longer periods of time. Well rested baby = less crazy mommy. 😴

my3sonsandalady : @beingbreezy you're not alone mama!!
rabitstew : I let Summer sleep on me everyday for the first month! It was the best way to keep the peace 😴
kelseyl0212 : That was how I spent my 3 months of maternity leave!
beingbreezy : @mintedlife it's my goal next week to try to put her down. I know it's gonna kill me not to go to her when she cries. 😢

Dec 25: {give} opening presents was a bit overwhelming for him, but he loves his bike and his new choo trains. Are you officially an adult when the joy of gifts comes from what you give rather than what you receive? #weverb12

babygurljrl : Love this!! Love ur blog<3
whitneykathleen : I think so. And it was overwhelming for Nae, too. She wanted to open everything.
kdahlhauser : Where did u get ur push bike? I'd love to get one for a friend!:)

Dec 23: {communicate} Even in the era of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and blogs, I still love Christmas cards. I may not necessarily be learning anything I don't already know from their status updates online, but I love to see their smiling faces on my mantel. And I especially love when people use photos I took for them on their Christmas card :). #weverb12

Dec 21: {reading} The books on my nightstand. I'm going to start using my pregnancy insomnia as an opportunity to read instead of just wasting time on Pinterest. I tried to read The No Cry Sleep Solution for Toddlers but I can tell it's not for me. Thus T1 is sleeping in my bed so I'm not actually share how I'll turn on the lamp and read at 3 am... #weverb12
weverb12 -
shaz_shaz : Ditto on @jalexise 's rec. It's less how to, more in depth to understanding children's sleep issues.
kaliluphoto : I remember a time in my life where I had this same scenario. My first one was sleeping in my bed and I was pregnant with the second. It's crazy how fast time moves. I remember how stressed I was and now I kind of miss it.
brooke_burnett_builds : Don't you have a kindle? Maybe get some good downloads and a book light
twowishes : I just turn in the bedside light. Never a problem as long as she's good and asleep.

Dec 20: {reminisce} Some of my favorite B&W Instagrams from the past year. I love my iPhone and I love Instagram. And I love being able to share with all of you :) #weverb12
snapseed - afterglow - vscocam - weverb12 -
justinebator : Are those all taken with your iPhone? How do you get them some crisp?! Do you edit them in another app before uploading to Instagram?
bijouxbleu : @thatwife love this collage of yours. He's gotten soo big!
thatwife : @jab221 yes, all iPhone pictures. There are a few secrets: Take lots of pictures and then edit down for the sharpest one, and I edit all of my photos in a separate app before Instagram (sometimes 2 or 3 apps :) ). My favorite photo editing apps are currently #snapseed, #afterglow, and #vscocam
oleg333 : cool pic

We sold our stroller to make way for a double stroller and a jogging stroller. Alas, I did not jog once. Massive #excercise fail. Hoping to start C25K in the spring. I need to lose that extra 20 lbs. #weverb12

Dec 19: {exercise} A post-partum exercise plan has been on my mind lately. I didn't start taking exercise seriously until T1 was almost a year, and I don't want that to be the case this time around. So many ?s. Should I cancel my gym membership and use workout videos and running? I definitely plan to do C25K again as soon as I feel up to it. The exercise bike is out for awhile because I know my crotch won't be able to handle it :). Should I keep the gym membership and do the exercise classes? HIIT? What did you do after baby? #weverb12
weverb12 -
everydayreading : It took me MONTHS after Ella's birth to be up for exercising again, but this delivery was so much easier that I'm hoping to start running again after six weeks.
thatwife : @everydayreading definitely don't discount the fact that you were running practically until delivery. I stopped at 25 weeks.
charm.o : hi jenna, i stopped running at 16wks preg and never ran again b/c of pelvic/pubic pain after childbirth. but i exercised 3-5x /wk while pregnant so i was able to lose the weight fairly quickly (6-7 months) and regain my muscle tone. hopefully you will fare better this time around! i know it might not sound fun but heavy heavy weight lifting is what helped me most esp since it requires the least amount of time. 20 minutes max per workout. just lifting my body weight for a couple of sets plus pushups. Pretty much all i did.
anne_luke : Have you looked into CrossFit?

Dec 18: {soak} Soaking up our last few weeks with him as an only child. It's hard knowing how difficult the transition to being one of two children will be for him. And knowing that no matter what I say or do he can never really *get* it until he's going through it. Kind of like pregnancy and parenthood I guess? #weverb12
weverb12 -
everydayreading : I felt exactly the same way, but Ella LOVES Ani and its been a much smoother transition than I expected.
sucreconfetti : Mavrick did amazing. Loved his sister the moment he saw her. Only thing for 3 weeks I had to sleep with him at bedtime. It was his way of saying "mommy you are mine now"
thatwife : @blushink 3 weeks right after the birth? How did you manage both of them?
sucreconfetti : Luckily DH was there. So he took care of Sienna for the 30 mins I was in bed with Mavrick. Lets just say his work injury was a blessing in disguise.

klovescoffee : My husband covers his faces and whines at me, haha. (But I feel about him how you feel about TH anyway.)
whitneykathleen : Same here! All of it. At least yours didn't mind the blogging about your life.
thatwife : @whitneykathleen a good relationship is all about give and take, you know? Definitely no right or wrong way to go about it.
whitneykathleen : Yes. I agree. So I tried the private blog thing along with still letting people into my life and trying to split and keep up with the two became harder and harder and it took the fun out of it. And now I struggle to do it at all. And I want to and need to. Oh well. I'm sure glad for Instagram.

Dec 16: {replicate} Pants. Purple. Pearls. Perfectly appropriate Sunday outfit. I've joined All Enlisted and am looking forward to replicating the actions of this movement throughout 2013. I can't stop hoping for change, no matter how much outside forces try to convince me it's never going to happen. #weverb12 #pantstochurch
pantstochurch - weverb12 -
bijouxbleu : @thatwife some Sundays I go to all three sessions, but for the most part I skip relief society. I've gone a few times, but don't feel i have anything in common with most, and cant relate. Mass is at 5 so we do have a break. Lets hope they don't change the times on us that would be 4h of church. Lol Thanks, it is difficult at times but we make it work.
marisalovescats : Mcgerard, a comment almost not worthy of reply except I don't think it should end this thread. For many people, faith an religion are more than a simple choice. This is akin to talking a woman whose husband is frustratingly late to everything, "Just leave him then." Marriages don't work this way and neither does this. The hardest and bravest course is often to enact change from within. Jenna and her sisters in this have my support and defense.
marisalovescats : Argh. Darned iPhone. Try to ignore the mistypes. "This is akin to TELLING a woman..." Etc.

Dec 15: {quote} This has become my personal motto. It's the background on my phone and I read it every day. This is a picture of a pillar I found in Hyde Park Chicago. It is amazing to me that someone's graffiti could describe me so perfectly. Thank you to the artist who shared this. I skipped yesterday's prompt because I was just too sad. #xoxoCT #weverb12
xoxoct - weverb12 -
thatwife : @whitneykathleen I will probably stick with the iPhone, but interestingly the discussion online made my husband want to switch to a new phone (he has a Samsung Galaxy right now). So it was definitely good for something
thatwife : @whitneykathleen although I might get whatever he gets (a Nexus I think?) because he will customize his and then I can just copy whatever he did :)
mary_cyrus : Probably the Nexus if the talk did it. Us Android folks were pretty pro-Nexus. At least I was anyway... ;)

Dec 13: {toss} For 2013 I want to toss my short temper with my kids. If their behavior is bad, I need to correct it, not lose it. Also I need to take more mommy time-outs and more deep breaths. I imagine my face here is as scary as the one T1 sees when I lose my cool with him. #weverb12

paintedladies_sheila : A lot of the techniques used in dog training work with kids as well - its all about reinforcement. Not a bad thing at all!!!
paintedladies_sheila : And they also work with trolls.
kaliluphoto : Maybe I should try and do this with you. It's one of my faults too.
gleea : As a Masters level school social worked with a degree from a top ten University and a speciality in trauma and child development...there are totally similarities in dog training and child rearing...kids are craaazy sometimes and treats go a long ways! ;)

Dec 12: {loss} I'm breaking my own rule, posting a dSLR photo for today because this is the only picture I have with my Chicago friend! So sad. Since we moved to the Bay area I've really been mourning the loss of my Chicago friends, specifically Paige (pictured) who lived four floors below me. It was an instant connection for us, and I miss walking in her front door at any time of day and instantly feeling comfortable and being able to tell her anything. She was the very first person to know I was pregnant with T2! I'm sure it will happen again, but right now it feels like I will never be able to find something like that again. I'm tired of moving around the country and starting the "friend audition" process all over again. #weverb12 #notfrommyiphone #dSLR #missingmyChicagofriends
notfrommyiphone - dslr - missingmychicagofriends - weverb12 -
thatwife : Okay, #weverb12 fail! Somehow I read "toss" as loss. Oh well, I really meant the post.
jumpstartyourjoy : It's hard making friends! Especially the "they get me in an instant" type. It's been a few years since I have bumped in to any of those, and the last time was in an office full of people who instantly had that kind of connection. I'd get mushy and tag all of those ladies, but I've never seen anything quite like it and we all mourned not being able to see each other everyday after layoffs happened. You'll find "that friend" (or those friends). There are lots of super nice people in the Bay Area!
heatherlarynn : Jenna remember you didn't like me at first? And look what that turned in to! :) don't give up! Love you @thatwife
sunskatesurf : I know a lot of people in Palo Alto. I could have them call you! Most are in the first ward. I don't know what ward you're in but let me know! Great amazing members there. :)
