Roller Coaster

I started a post earlier in the day about my day yesterday. In all honesty, it was a super tough day for me as a mommy. It started with a horrible teething episode that caused a lack of sleep for everyone in the family. Then it morphed into bad eating patterns which eventually turned into me scaring Jillian. You see, when I'm really frustrated/angry about something, it's easier for me to scream into a pillow and get all that energy out. By doing so, the noise scared Jillian and made her cry. I mean full out bawling her eyes out. I felt so awful :( Luckily, we were able to get out of the house and go to the mall & Babies R Us with our friends Ms. Ashley and Addi Claire! Plus, a venti Starbucks drink for mama helped ;) The change of scenery did us both good and we had a much better evening with Phil.

Today was going much better than yesterday. Not only is she in a much better mood, but Jillian also took a 2-1/2 hour nap today! She has never slept more than 1-1/2 until this point :)

Then, this happened...

She finally rolled over! It was only one time, but I am still so proud :) Hopefully she'll do it again soon. I'm just really proud of her! It's so crazy how much of an emotional roller coaster being a parent can be. We had such an awful beginning yesterday and today just skyrocketed into amazing. I will say this, it is totally worth it.
