i'll take you down where the birds fly by

Having trouble stringing the words together lately. I swear I always think of things to write here, but then they flit away from me. I guess because a lot of it is so mundane. Do you really want to hear about my struggles with trying to get David to nap during the day? Or cradle cap?  Yeah, I didn't think so. 

So here are a bunch of things: My parents came for a visit. We had a great time. The weather has been amazing and long walks are so good for me and my un-excercised body; the boy mostly just sleeps through them. I have been to a few different moms groups and feel that I don't fit very well into the suburban mom demographic (maybe this is something I should expound on at some point). But I am making friends with some of the younger moms at my church, which is good I think. I can't wait until David starts sleeping a little longer at night. . . I'm getting used to waking up 2-3 times a night, but that doesn't make it any easier. 

Our little guy is doing great though, and I really can't complain. . . I only have five more weeks of maternity leave and I am trying to savor it all while I can. 

And some pictures.

The cow outfit is too cute!

Do you have a copy of Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child? I feel like it really helped me. Kind of medical/analytical, but it gives the reasoning behind babies' sleep patterns and somehow knowing why helped me feel less overwhelmed by the whole napping thing.

Please feel free to e-mail me too, if you want! I have lots of stories about trying to get CJ to nap, sometimes successfully, sometimes not. Bottom line is that it was really important to me, and I did all I could to help him get the sleep he needed.

You look great! Motherhood becomes you :D

I'm glad you're doing great, and yes, we do want to hear all of it. is that what they call, you know, life? (but only five more weeks, are you kidding? how much do you get all in all? does your hubby take all the rest?)
