What's Got You So Jumpy?

Three words: lack of sleep

Goody gravy. I'm tired. But my stupid Mommy Genes have kicked so do you think I can sleep during daylight? The answer to that would be a great big No, I Cannot.

I shouldn't complain, Emerson is a great baby even tho from three to six a.m I think he's the devil incarnate. But hey! I bet everyone feels (or felt) that way about their babies.

Right? Right!

Truth is, we're alive. And at this point, that's all I expect out of us. Keeping everyone alive. Anything above and beyond that is just gravy.

Like, taking pictures.


I know I need to be taking more pictures (he's already gained two pounds! in just five weeks!) but half the time I don't even know what day it is. I gauge it by whether Aaron goes to work and the boys go to school.

Don't worry. I realize how pathetic that is.


I don't think I ever took one picture of Griffin or Darwin throwing a hissy fit. And goddamn, do I wish I had those blown up and framed in my house. As blackmail material.


And sadly, no - this isn't a real smile and how I captured it is beyond me. But wow, does that big grin ever give me something to look forward too.

Smiles and sleep. That's all I'm asking for.

Hang in there, lady. Sleep's coming before too long. Goddamn that is a tough time.

They'll both be here in no time. Well, the smiles may come sooner than the sleep, but they'll make the waiting for sleep more bearable, right? :) He's a cutie.

I still tell my kids that they are lucky they are cute. It is the only thing that kept either of them alive during the wee baby phase. ;)

My Dearest Mama with another new baby,

Girl, I feel you! My 2 year and 2 day old still don't sleep through the night. And I work full time looking and feeling like a zombie for the past 2 years. Keeping everyone alive is my only focus on all days. Hang in there! Can you get some help during the day, so you can like sleep for 2 hours or so?
