I feel tired guys.
The boy is in the midst of teething. Have I been saying that for the last month?!? Why, yes I have. Those top teeth are taking foreeeeeever to pop through. I can see them but they seem to be frozen in that "just below the surface" spot. His bottom two popped out so fast. Anyways, I'm giving this as the reason for his crazy sleep. Last night was actually back to normal but I'm not holding my breath. I'm also beginning to wean him at night. He was eating 2x's. We are now down to once. So...there's that.
Anyways, recently Jason and I attempted a photo sesh with Jack. Ha! Good times. First, I learned that I am not funny...at all. I tried to make Jack smile...meh. He'd stare at me with that bottom left expression. "Stop mom, just stop. You're good for snuggles and milk. You are not funny." Well, fine then. Here are 4 of our 236 failed attempts. :) I was actually able to come up with some that were half way decent with the help of editing so I think in the end it was mostly a success. And YES...Jack's 1 year is in 2 months but I'm traveling a lot the next month so I'm trying to NOT wait until the last week to do everything (which is what usually happens) for his little party. I happen though to be a party person...I really like planning...and the cake. Oh, the cake. And yes...it's more for me then for him. So, take a gander at my Baby Hiawatha outtakes. :)
Other news. Jason had spring break last week which was basically wonderful. I worked a little extra but we also spent time together. At this point we have Sunday together so a few extra days is always nice.
On Saturday on the way home from work I believe our truck started to die. Basically I started praying like mad that I would make it home. I didn't want to pay for a tow. I also have a fear of breaking down in the middle of the highway and causing a huge traffic jam. I made it...but the truck basically barely accelerates and shakes like crazy. Poor Pickles (our trucks name ;) ) I have no idea what that means but I'm taking the train to work now...which adds some extra time to my commute. Boo.
And finally this next month is looking a little crazy. And honestly...I'm embracing it. I love travel and diversity. I love my little routine with Jack but I think I'm also ready to stir it up a bit. We have family coming up, then a trip to Washington, Jason's birthday, then his mom up, then I head off to Florida. It will be exhausting but I'm ready. :) Any tips on entertaining an active 10 month old on the plane? Ha! ;)
Hope all is well on your side of the computer. Adios!
