We had some pics of Lily taken a couple of weeks ago. I know the quality sucks because I just took a picture of the pics with my camera, but at least you can see them. I didn't want to have to go downstairs and turn the computer on to use the scanner. Heck, i don't even know if the scanner works.

The LIfe of a Mother.

I had a terrible night last night. Part of it is my fault. I have a bad habit of going to bed late. I figure by the time I get the kids to bed I need "my time" and it usually goes to late. So I went to bed about 1:00 and was just about to fall asleep when Ayla woke up. She does this every night. She is on like a four-hour cycle where she wakes up after sleeping for four hours. She throws a fit if she has to go back to bed. Another thing that is my fault is that I have allowed her to come to bed with me. I am just too exhausted to deal with it and know i will get more sleep if i just let her sleep in bed with me. Then at 1:15, just as i was about to fall asleep again, Lily woke up. So i fed her. She woke up again at 2, 3, and five because her binky fell out. Then at six she had to be fed again. I had just fallen asleep when i heard a loud thump. Ayla had fallen off of our bed. Now our bed sits up pretty high and it was about a 3 ft fall or so. I jumped out of bed and picked her up. She said she hurt and so I took her to the kitchen to use a dimmer light to look at her. She had a massive bloody nose and a fat lip. The poor girl. So i ended up cleaning her face, hands, hair. It was everywhere, including all over me. So finally at 6:30 everything was cleaned up and I was ready to go back to bed for a couple more hours. Well my darling little girl decided she was done sleeping and wanted to watch Dora. I couldn't go back to bed and ended up just working the morning away. Gotta love being a mom!

Sitting here thinking.

So Jord has been bugging me to write on the blog. I am a little lazy about it lately. I am not saying i have a ton of time on my hands with work and two little sweeties, but I really just haven't been in the mood to do it. So I am sitting here on the couch thinking what in the heck i would write about as I listened to Jordan and his friend talk politics at 12:15 at night. Then I decided i would just write about them. These two could go on and on. His friend's wife texted him at 10:50. Jimmy got up of the couch and said goodbye about 11:00. It is now 12:15. These two have the weirdest relationship. It is almost like when you are dating someone and you have to say goodbye for the night and you just take your time cuz you really don't want to say goodbye. Well they will start out with getting off the couch. Twenty minutes later it moves to the stairs. Another 20 minutes later Jimmy is at the bottom of the stairs. And yes it goes on. Jord at the door and jimmy outside. For another 20 minutes. It would end on the steps if it was warm outside. These two are just two peas in a pod. I guess if it weren't for politics it wouldn't be this way, but it is what makes my husband the way he is. I am glad I am not married to someone who just lives in a bubble and doesn't pay attention to what is happening in the world. Well, it is almost 12:30 now. It is now time for me to start the above process (getting jimmy out the door) so I can get to bed.
