where to begin

Baby W. is now 4 weeks old. Time seems like it has flown by, but at the same time W. seems like he's been around forever. He's doing well, and getting fat. (which I think is delightful) He has had a couple issues that I don't remember Mini M. having... or maybe I've just blocked them from my memory. For a few days last week he decided that life would be much more exciting if he screamed inconsolably from 7 to 10 every night. Just about the point when I was going to lose my mind he decided he was bored with that and would insist on eating ever hour and a half. Just about at the point when I was about to lose my nips, he got over it. Now he is eating around every 2 1/2 hours, which is much more "do-able" for me. His newest ploy? Waking up ever 2 hours at night. Yep. We're having quite the party here at the "nighty" household.

It's funny with babies. When they're little, everything is a phase that only lasts for a few days or a week and then changes into another phase just about at the point when you are about to go absolutely insane. Hmm... hope this one changes soon, because I am veeery close to becoming a lunatic. (cue crazed frantic laugh, eye twitches and hair pulling) Other than that W. is a sweet little man. He is starting to smile and coo a bit.

In news other than babies... yes... I can talk about things other than babies, thankyouverymuch... This Friday is our anniversary. C.N. and I will have been married 5 years. I'm not sure what we'll be doing, seeing that we can't leave W. for very long. We'll probably just drop him and Mini off at C.N.'s parents and go out to eat somewhere near them. Want to know what I really want for our anniversary? I want a cake from the Home Bakery. For a few of our anniversaries we have had a replica of the top of our wedding cake made. Here's me on our 1st . Wow I looked young.But, alas the cake this year can not be. C.N. and I are trying to be thin, so we have cut out sugar and most carbs. We have been doing it for about a week now and I'm back to my normal weight. Yay. But I still want to lose another 10. So... the diet shall continue. Not much fun, especially when I look at that picture and realize that inside is a lemon cake with raspberry mousse filling. AGRAH! I'll just gently knaw on W's fat rolls and hopefully that will satisfy my craving for something sweet.

Happy almost anniversary to you! I had forgotten that the 26th was Ed's and my "first started dating" anniversary. Hmm. Maybe we'll do something about that next year.

Tiny looks like an adorable old man in that picture. I'm glad he's through the colic phase...And the hungry phase... Though I'm wondering if he's going through a "phases" phase! I hope everything evens out soon.

Welcome to Em's world. I am a stay at home/ work at home (when the odd job presents itself) mom.
