Baby E is over his cold and seems to be fond of a good night sleep once again.

For the past 2 nights he has slept 7 hours in a row. I don't know if I should be hopeful that this is going to continue, or thank my lucky stars for 6 hours in a row of good sleep.

Now I just need to get smart and go to bed at the same time he does.

YAY for the 3rd baby miracle!!!

Blessing day

I forgot to blog about baby E's blessing day last week.

He was dressed in the latest fashion from Mommys Crochet hook. It was a really cute sweater and pants made out of a white yarn (kind of off white I decided after it was done. oh well) that had a little bit of elastic in it to help it stretch. I would have loved to find normal pants for him to wear instead of the ones I crocheted, but I couldn't find any to buy. I guess white pants for babies aren't the norm :) .

He was much admired at church and many people laughed at how he had his arms raised to the sky during the blessing. It was really very cute!

After church we went home to change. Grandma B did the honors and during the diaper change Baby E pooped while his diaper was off. While Grandma tried to clean that up and Daddy tried to help, he decided to potty. That landed all over Baby E's face. I was in the other room where I heard "help!". I went in to help but there was nothing I could do. There were already 2 people cleaning up the mess. Poor Baby E was crying because of his suddenly wet face! It was pretty amusing. Especially because this is the first time that has happened. He is a very polite little boy who hasn't had many of those accidents.

After changing we all went over to Grandma W's house for a family get together and lunch. It was a very nice time. We visited and ate. The kids played. It was fun to see everyone.

On another subject, I'm very excited for my sister to have her baby girl. She is 37 or so weeks now and soon to have her baby any day!

Mothers Day 2011

I have enjoyed breakfast in bed, cards from the kids, and quiet time this morning.

I don't know if it can get any better than this.

Although, now that I think about it - a little chocolate and a nap would make this day absolutely dy-no-mite! :)

Not responsible!

Its my opinion that new mothers shouldn't be responsible for things that happen when they are half asleep.

A couple of nights ago (Baby E has a cold) the baby wasn't sleeping so well. there was snot and lots of snorting. Well, hubby somehow wakes me up and says that he thought the baby would benefit from some bulb syringe suction. I then proceeded to hand him the bulb syringe which was on my nightstand. He then reminded me that he had to work in the morning and that I would need to do it. I don't remember much after that.

I think it all happened early in the night because boy was I sleepy. We had a good laugh over it the next morning.
