Good grief.  I can't believe that it's been almost a week since my last post.  What the what?!?  Where does time go?

So, what's been going on in my world as of late?  A little of this, a little of that.

-Jason has a 3 day weekend coming up and decided to take Tuesday off too.  We currently only have Sundays together which are filled with church and Jason usually going to school to lesson plan.  Jason has class Mon-Thur. and I work Fri-Sat.  This week though I have Saturday off so we get Sat-Tues together...YES! (Did you get all that? ha)  We are planning a little day trip to Santa Cruz and a day of hiking.  Good family time is definitely needed right now.
-I still can't find my camera cord and it's driving me nuts-o.  Maybe I should be taking the time to look for it during Jack's nap instead of blogging...?  naaaaah.
-Speaking of Jack.  We are trying to ditch the swaddle.  Night 1 was okay.  He would wake himself up 2 or 3 times before he finally went down.  Night 2 was like a normal night of sleep when he was in the swaddle.  I was all, "Yeah buddy!  That's wasn't so bad."  Night yeah.  11pm, 12am, 1:30am.  I tried to let him cry it out...he was in it for the long haul.  Jason can't sleep when he cries...down side of a TINY house.  Jack will cry the WHOLE night almost.  Yep.  Tried it.  Lovely.  Anyways, Jason teaches today and needed to sleep...obvs.  I finally brought the kid into our bed and he went right to sleep and basically stayed asleep.  REALLY?!?  Why oh why?  :)
-Also speaking of Jack.  I just LOVE that kid!!!  (Even though he sucks at sleeping haha).  His personality it coming out more and more.  He is the sweetest little guy.  He gives us kisses (big wet, slobbery opened mouth kisses) and it pretty much melts my heart.  He really has become (for the most part) a mellow, sweet natured, easy little guy.  If he slept perfectly then I guess it would all be too good to be true eh?!?  :)  I will say that he LOVES to get out.  If we stay inside he most definitely gets bored and lets me know it.
-I need to drink more water.  Seriously I do.  Just thought I'd throw that one in there. ha.

Welp, happy Thursday friends.  Hopefully I'll find my camera cord so that I can actually post some pictures.  Oh yaay.


  1. How are you breaking the swaddle? I read let the legs I first, then an arm, then e second arm. Or are you going cold turkey????

    1. So we switched to a sleep sack that has the swaddle ability a while back. That makes his legs basically free. Then the first night I pulled one arm out. It went okay and I decided that I'd rather just get it over with. The 2nd night I just did both arms out and it went great. It was completely normal. Then the 3rd night though...not so good. So we'll see how tonight goes. I HOPE better! :)
