My Poor Husband

Every once and a while (meaning every couple days) I have a melt down about something.  This weekend was one of those times.  It was a great Saturday.  I got to do crafts and go to a baby shower with my mom.  I had a great time...except that baby was in tow and would NOT sleep.  I knew he wouldn't but there was a small part of me that hoped he would for my sanity's sake.  NOPE.  At the end of the day, he would NOT go to sleep either!  I was going crazy!

I finally admitted to my husband the lack of patience left in me and that I felt like I was going insane.  (I can understand how some mothers out there might just go missing for a day or two.)  This mommy stuff is TOUGH business.

I am so emotionally and physically spent 5 months into our first child that I can't fathom having any other children.  It's tough to admit when I've wanted kids of my own for SO long.  I love my son but I just haven't had very much "me" time since he was born and it's really been hard on me.

When I got married my husband and I agreed on 4 or 5 this point, I think he'll be lucky if I can manage to say yes to 2.

On a completely different note, my "call center" job will most likely be ending soon. (After elections are over, no one cares to know what the general public thinks about the candidates on the ballot).  Anyways, so I'm attempting to get another job.  I had an interview at the Down East Basics Home Goods store but they didn't find my "availability" a good fit for their store.  (I said I was only available in the evenings).  However, another Down East Basics in Tempe called me for an interview on Thursday.  Hopefully I get it.  I'm trying to decide what schedule I'll tell them I can do.  Since I'm not ready for some random person to watch my son yet, I have to rely on my family's availability and work off of their schedule.  Makes things complicated sometimes but so far it has worked.

Jordan is busy these days with his 2 school classes-online math and PE/Exercise class and his full time job in Scottsdale.  He is such a good husband, a girl couldn't ask for a more loving daddy for her baby.

That's all for night.  A picture or two and then it's off to bed I go.  Let's cross our fingers Lincoln lets me sleep for more than 3 hours at a time!!!

Being so patient while mommy gets ready in the morning.
He is so stinking cute!!!!

Keeping it Real

Lincoln is so adorable.  I know every parent says this, but it's the gosh darn honest truth.  Jordan thinks he is adorable even when he is crying.  I would too if his crying didn't happen at inopportune times-like, say, driving around, running errands!

Anyways, he is now 4 and a half months and seriously the sweetest silly-face making baby!  We love this kid.  He is starting to SLOWLY sleep longer stretches at night which I DESPERATELY need from him.  I believe I got 6 straight hours 2 nights ago.  It was so incredible.

 He LOVES his cereal!  He gets all excited and bounces all over the place!
I may have set him up on this one...ha ha

Jordan has been at his new job, I think, 2 months now.  It's a bit of a drive but it works for now.

 I've been working at a company called SSI.  It's basically a call center but I call people and ask them to take a survey.  You wouldn't believe how many people I call in 6 hours and only come away with 10 or less surveys!  I have heard more rude people and answering machines than mostly people hear in a year.  I try to not let the rude people get to me, but sometimes they just do.  I understand I am often calling people at inconvenient times, but they don't have to be rude over the phone.  I am not rude when speaking to them!

Also, OTHER good news!  We have now officially been home owners for a YEAR now.  Wow, time flies.  It's so strange.  I feel like it makes me a legitimate adult now.  (That and the fact that we have a kid!)

Other side note, I have been LOVING this fall weather.  Early in the morning at like 7:00 it's perfect outside.  I have taken Lincoln for a walk every day this week!  I think he enjoys looking everywhere.  It's a nice exercise for me...since I don't ever seem to do it at any other time of the day. :(

Tonight, Jordan's mom offered to watch Lincoln so we could have a date night.  YAHOO!  Let the count down to no baby begin!
