Labor has stopped progressing. That is not awesome news...however, I am in a better mood today with that knowledge. Last night, I fell asleep at 9:30 pm and though I woke up six or seven times- it was way more sleep than previous nights. That might be helping my attitude.

Speaking of attitude. It is days like today that I get mad at my 'summer lovin' friends'. I blame them for this excruciating heat. I am SO a Fall/Winter girl. AND, I cannot wait to do Fall with two boys.

I am a fan of sleep training. I know a lot of people aren't. But I have a 1 year old who goes to bed, with a smile on his face 99.9% of the time (teething not included) in his crib, with his light off and talks himself or sings himself to sleep. Thank God for the husband forcing the 'cry it out' when I was in Spain :) It will be interesting with kid number 2, because I am not positive I have the heart of stone needed to ignore the child's cry.

I am drinking a cup of coffee a day again. For the first 8 months of my pregnancy, it would make me sick. Lemme tell you, I have missed this ol' friend

It is hard to keep a house clean with a 1 year old and an almost done pregnancy, with a baby in the womb that loves to lay on your nerves. He is really getting on my nerves. I AM VERY funny. So, the house is kind of turning into a tornado- oh well! Somethings gotta give, if it is the house, so be it.

I am really excited for Michigan Football. I am so sad it is still two months away. Is it weird that I am already planning a gathering for the Michigan/Alabama game? Big Aaron has not given the 'okay' yet, but I really think it would be lots of fun. One of the issues (and sorry dad if you are reading this) is we kind of swore we wouldn't watch 'big games' with my father anymore :) He gets emotional, and screams and gets in a bad mood. It isn't pleasant. That man is a FAN in every sense of the word. I just think we have to emotionally prepare for him swearing that 'Michigan deserves to lose, even if they win, they deserve to lose', or the classic 'that's it, I am giving up my season tickets, I mean it this time, I am DONE with this team'. Etc...Maybe we will have him sign a behavior contract before coming over? That might work. (this one is mostly sarcastic- of course my father is always fun to watch Michigan games with)

I am tired. That is all. Happy Friday!

  1. Praying for you!! Cannot wait to hear of #2's arrival!

  2. You're not going to like this but is the coffee part of the sleep issue?? This last pregnancy I was SOO sensitive to caffeine and still am. Even the slightest amount any time of day would keep me up for hours. I still can't have chocolate anymore because it affects both me and Luke. How awful is that?? I should get a medal or something. Of course, to break the cycle is very very hard...

    And, remember, hearts of flesh are good things ;) Jesus likes them. Ezekial 11:19

    Love you and praying for you! Can't wait to see little Joseph!!!

  3. I am a fall girl too! The heat is so ugh. Also, I am so jealous that your hubs did the sleep training for you! Ellen still can't sleep and it's driving me nuts!
