The best laid plans.....

As my part time status is quickly coming to a close I realize that I need more than a few hours of sleep a night and am desperately trying to train my 4 month old son to sleep through the night, without a pacifier. It seemed like a noble idea a few days ago; however, after 3 nights of wrestling with him (what a mental image huh?) I am wondering who will come out the victor. I need to win this battle though so I can't give up even though I scarcely have the energy to do my work and play with my 2 year old who just wants mommy to have some energy left over for her, poor dear. I have 3 more days to train him. Then we have a 10 day whirl wind of activities and then Josh and I both start back to work full time and the kids are in day care. Wow......

HAA HAA! I have finally mastered one little peice of blogging technology (if one can call it that) slideshows of my husband, kids, and beloved Story People.....Please take a moment to enjoy the pictures as it took me a few HOURS to figure out how to post them:)

Pacifier/Sleep training

I know I'm not a bad parent, but letting my child cry it out for 10-15 minutes is heart breaking. I know it is just a few short days of hell to get to this wonderful place where they sleep well and don't need a pacifier again (Praise God) but in the short run it's hard. I know I will not miss trying to search backward with one had frantically for a pacifier while driving with the other though:) Here is to a few days of craziness for blissfulness to follow.....Lord help us all....

Rest please????

Not that anyone is really reading this yet, but I feel the need to scream- REST PLEASE! I am so tired it seems all the time that I know the real me will pop out if I could just get more than 2 hours of sleep at a time, and more than 4-5 hours a night. I'm busy all day and it seems all night....I wish I could just sleep for like 6 hours straight- is that too much to ask?

Another Family Reunion Survived!

So yet another family reunion has come and gone....and I have to say for a gathering of 20+ people from 4 generations, 3 states, and 2 countries- it was fantastic. Josh and I had a wonderful time hanging out with family, playing tennis, going to the pool- and just relaxing. Now 1.5 weeks before another trip- back to Santa Rosa for Josh, Miah and me for work. Abby will get to stay with grandparents while we are gone....

Let's hope

Let's hope and pray that our long anticipated 1 week vacation up at Port Ludlow, WA with my mother-in-laws entire family is a fun week. Let's hope that my son will not be awake from 11am-4am the night before we leave like last night. Let's hope that we figure out how to transport frozen milk w/out it unthawing before we leave at 8am. Let's hope we actually leave at 8am so we can get good seats since they don't pre-book seats for families traveling with kids. Let's hope that we don't return exhausted. Let's hope that the whole family gets along since it's the first whole family reunion in like 15 years. Let's hope......

My first blog

I feel like I am stepping off a cliff into an unknown territory called "blogland". I hope and pray this is a good place to just be me, and recapture that little bit of me that has been lost, or exchanged for Mommy, Wife, Employee, Friend, Sister, Daughter, Cousin, and somewhat "nursing cow" to my 3 month old. (Yes I just said that).

I'll start to add pictures, etc soon.


Let the blogging begin!
