Mornings, Haircuts, Reflections, + Sippy Cups

I love when both kids are bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in the mornings.  That means they have slept well the night before!  Katie loves to play with Jack on our bed in the morning - it is one of those sweet moments of the day!  I know Katie is a blur in this picture, but I love it - it really does sum up how happy and active they are in the mornings :)
I've been saying for quite some time that I needed to get Katie's hair trimmed.  She will be 4 the end of April and had only had one haircut ever!  Her hair was getting stringy looking and blah.  So, after I picked her up from school on Tuesday, we headed to Divas & Dudes to get her second haircut.  She was excited and did great.  And good gracious - doesn't it look SO much better?!  
And doesn't she look so much older?!  I don't think I can handle that.  Between the haircut, her height, and her sassiness - I have to keep reminding myself that she is only 3!
And on Wednesday, I took Jack to the doctor to make sure he is a-okay!  He had been waking up a lot at night recently, so I wanted to make sure his ears were good to go and see if the doctor had any suggestions. Her recommendation?  Cry it out.  I was prepared for that - but that is why I wanted to make sure there were no other issues.  And actually he has done better the last couple of nights!  We are going to try to get him down earlier so he isn't overly tired at bedtime.  And we will try feeding him cereal - so that will be cereal 3x per day.  As if we needed another meal added - ha! But at night - it is cry it out time.  Oh, and there should be some teeth happening soon...I am sure that has something to do with the waking up.  That and maybe a growth spurt.  But he was such a happy little guy at his appointment - he loved the mirror!
We have also started trying to do better about the sippy cup!  I know we introduced it to Katie at a very young age just so she was familiar with it - and I really think that is the main reason we had no issue going from bottle to sippy cup!  And I think Jack is figuring it out...he definitely likes to chew on it, but I think he has figured out that there is something in there that does, indeed, come out.  Here he is this morning with his cup!
And then Katie wanted to help him - such a sweet big sister!
