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

whitneykathleen : I think so. And it was overwhelming for Nae, too. She wanted to open everything.

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

jessiealexise : Have you read Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child? I know every chid/family is different, but that book has saved me.
bijouxbleu : @thatwife love your book reading material list
bwildered : @thatwife you need a light wedge. It will let you read and not wake any one else up. And I've decided that soon enough my boy won't want to be in my bed for any reason so as long as he does I'm going to let him stay. Families have been sleeping together for ever and I love feeling him cuddle up to me.
tucsonash : Ina May <3
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_norsworthy : 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.

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 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

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 -
whitneykathleen : It's harder to leave with 2 kids and find time with two schedules. At first I would walk/run outside with the double stroller or I would wait until Jaren was home (more like go super early before he left for work). Then I did treadmill and my own calisthenics exercises on my own here at home. And I just started p90x and do it in the morning. If you don't mind taking your baby to the gym daycare there is that option. Strollers are great. If you have room and can afford a treadmill I recommend that. It is one of the best purchases for 3 reasons; I can't run in 30 below or snow. Sometimes I find the time at night when it's dark and there are no street lights out here ( although, you have them, but I'm not sure I would feel comfortable running in the dark on my own there), nap time is the easiest time and they sleep better in their beds so I run then. And number four is I live 20 minutes from the gym.
cantaffordchoos : Losing weight while breastfeeding doesn't work for everyone, in fact for myself and most of the women I know it wasn't true. Its even different with each pregnancy, with the first I wasn't in my prepregnancy jeans till 9 months after, this time around I'm still not in them and #2 is 14 months old.
jody216 : Curious--how soon after giving birth did you start running? Dr said to wait 6 wks before exercising (I'm 5 wks now) but I don't think I'll be up for running again, or even jogging, for a while. I really want to do C25K again.
thatwife : @jody216 my son was born in April and I didn't start running until February of the following year. I hope to start running at about the one month mark after T2 as long as my labor/delivery/recovery goes well.
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.
charmocharmo : 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.
annelee102 : 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 -
dlgrow : You never know though, the transition may not be as difficult as you'd think. Eli was SO attached to me, very needy, and I thought it would be really hard for him to share me. But, his love for Lyla far exceeded any feelings of jealousy and he has loved having a sibling more than I could have imagined. T1 will be a great brother!
tlmoments : He will be great. Owen took to it right away and LOVES Ryan. They are already the best of friends. He makes the baby laugh like no other. There were occasional behavior stuff the first month or so, but it settled down.
thatwife : @dlgrow @tlmoments so encouraging to hear! I feel like P is so spoiled, because I'm always trying to meet his needs as fast as possible to ward off any *extra* tantrums for the day. He's going to have a hard time hearing he has to wait because I need to attend to other needs right when he wants something. But you guys give me hope :)
dlgrow : Now that you say that, I do remember learning patience was probably the biggest issue of anything (because like you said they're used to getting needs met right away), but within a few weeks we had a good system--I got more prepared when I knew I'd be stuck feeding the baby with setting him up with stuff, he got more independent and patient, and I learned to give him the ability to reach things he needed and I was ok with him getting on his own. You guys will all do great! And really, there is nothing better you can give P than a sibling! :)
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.
