Over The Rainbow

This is what my house looked like last night. Isn't it gorgeous? I can't stop staring at this photo!!! We've had quite a bit of that good summer rain here in NWA this week. Last night the rain stopped and the sky was decorated with the most gorgeous rainbow I've ever seen. I couldn't get the entire thing in the photo but it wrapped itself from one side of my house to the other. It looked just like a picture I would have drawn when I was a little girl. The rainbow was so deeply colorful and I think I will treasure this photo of my home forever and ever!!
Our house is full of adventures this week. Today I started potty training Campbell. I have been dreading this for forever but I feel like this is the most opportune time since he's on break from MDO. I'm going with the 3 day naked method because I'm hoping to knock this out as quickly as possible and I've heard great success stories from this method. I'll update everyone next week and let you know how it went. I'll just say for now that I have been (extremely) pleasantly surprised!
As far as Bennett goes, he's just chillin. He's been sleeping through the night for us this week. Whoop! I think we're there folks, I think we're there. I'm going to give it another week before I feel confident about it but I'm pretty sure this little man finally figured it out. Holla! Even his naps have been darn near perfect all week. Getting him started on a schedule right away was the best decision I could have made. Now I'm ready to drop that 11:00 dream feed so I can crawl in bed before 11:30. I'm getting more sleep now but I'm still so tired. Gah! I require so much sleep y'all. Once we get this 11 hour sleep thing figured out, I'm going to pour myself a tall glass of wine to celebrate. I haven't had any of that in almost a year now and my taste buds are ready.


  1. That picture of your home is gorgeous Kara!! I think you should watch for a canvas deal on Groupon or even Snapfish and get that blown up and put on canvas in your playroom. My niece has the same baby seat that Bennett is sitting in for her little guy and he loves it!!

    1. Thank you! I thought about having it printed! It was just so gorgeous outside and I took it with my phone!
      This baby seat has been great! He doesn't have enough head control for the bumbo yet so this is perfect! He likes sitting up like a big boy :)
