Where in the world did June go?!?!?!?!?

I'm not sure how it happened but June is officially over.  I am in complete shocked at how quickly it went.  It doesn't seem possible that this week we will be celebrating the 4th of July!  I'm excited to see Cole's reaction to the fireworks this year.  Last year he liked them but I have a feeling this year he's really going to get into them!
Chloe is officially six weeks old, as of this past Friday!  She continues to be an amazing baby.  She slept through the night three or four nights last week... when I say through the night I mean going to bed at 10:30 or 11 and not getting up until 5:00 or 5:30 in the morning.  This has really helped momma out.
Cole will start going to the sitters twice a week this week.  He'll be going on Tuesday and Thursdays.  I'm torn about this whole thing.  I love having both of the kids home with me but I also feel like Chloe doesn't get a lot of just "mommy" time like Cole did.  I know it's impossible for her to have the same amount of time with me because she is the second child but I still feel guilty about that.  However, I feel guilty about sending Cole to the sitter so Chloe and I can be together.  I also feel guilty about spending the money for Cole to go to the sitters when I'm at home!  It's a double edged sword.  It doesn't matter what I do I feel guilty.
I'm also getting excited about school starting but at the same time I'm anxious because I don't want to leave Chloe just yet.  When I have to go back to school she'll be a smidgen over 11 weeks.  I just keeping that she'll still be so little, even though Cole wasn't even that old when I went back with him.  I guess all this "spare time" has me thinking!
As a side note, I have become completely addicted to pintrest.  I actually accomplished a project that I saw on there for Chloe's room.  I've put a picture of it on here at the bottom.  It's a picture from hair accessory holder.  I'm really excited with how well it turned out.  Now all I have to do is put it up on the wall!
I'm also putting a couple pictures of the kids on here too!
Chloe in her pretty princess outfit!

Chloe's hair accessory's organizer.  You can clip berets to the ribbon in the middle and hang headbands off of the hooks at the bottom!

Very cool! Did you get the idea from pinterest?

Yes, I did get the idea from pintrest. However, I did do a little bit of modification. The one that I saw originally only had vertical ribbon not horizontal.
Glad you liked it! :)
