On the days I really need a nap, it never fails, the baby WILL NOT sleep.

Otherwise, she'll take two three hour naps. Faboosh.

Just say it

Why don't people just say what they're really thinking? I know what they're thinking, just say it to me already!

It's days like these I'd highly enjoy being 1000 miles away from everything and everyone except my husband and daughter.

Momentary thought

At the moment, I am very much enjoying the following:

A sleeping baby
Afternoon thunderstorms
A cat cuddled up in my lap
Late-morning naps with my husband
Extra-Strength Tylenol
Hyland's Teething Tablets
My new curtains

Mother's Day

Me and Jacob - my sister's son and my favorite.

Grandma passing out cake on Mother's Day - Her 90th birthday.

My nieces and nephews. They are beautiful.

Happenings for the moment

I've become really fond of my memories lately. I think about my life, my childhood - a nap in the afternoon, playing outside with my sister, going to school...all these little things that add up to who you become. Who you are.

But the thing is, I don't know who that person is. It's me, but it isn't me. I've changed, grown and lived more life lately than I wanted to.

There are these moments when I sit there and look at my own baby girl and think about how I'm shaping her life. I want and wish the world for her.
