  2. Is that JUST drool on Sebastian's shirt? Or a mix of drool and tears? Love Julia's, pattern mixing btw. So stylish.

  5. HAHA!!!! Oh my gosh, I thought I was the only one! We're trying out detachment parenting finally and it's not going too well. LOL! "King No Sleep" is almost exactly what we call ours!

  7. preeeeetty sure that Julia may be more fashion-forward than me, with all the layering of patterns.

    Good luck! Crank that music, drink some vino. You'll get through it.

  8. Oh no! I didn't think it was possible for Sebastian to look so sad. Truth time I guess! Here's to a better day.

  9. OH my gosh...I know he probably doesn't sounds like it, but See Bass is the cutest crier I've ever seen. And Julia is killing me...is that a zebra-print jacket?..LOL We had a very similar day, a couple days ago. When they were really little, we used to put pillows over our head, and hide while they cried it out...

  10. I know there's daily tragedy associated with these faces, but thank you for documenting and sharing, I nearly laughed myself off a chair.

  11. Did you up your wine budget this month? Because you have to pad it for the CIO regime. Have.to.

  12. I love reading your posts! You are hilarious! BTW- Joanna Watwood(Swenson) is my sister in law and I found out that you two were roomies in college. What a small world. Thanks for keeping me laughing.

  13. That first picture of Julia is priceless. That sort of dramatic anger could land her her own Bravo realty show.

  15. HAHA!!! He won't even remember this - well...now he will since you posted about it :) Is it just me - or is it funnier that they are wearing stripes like they are prisoners???!!

  16. The look on your face in that last picture, Grace....holy cow. Hysterical!

  18. Ha! We just started crying it out this past weekend (a little behind since Jack's already 7 months) & I never imagined it would be this hard! Putting him down at night isn't so bad, it's the hour long middle of the night sessions that just kill me!

    Both your little ones are so adorable! Is it weird that I think babies look the cutest mid-cry?
