My Kid Rocks.

If only for one night, she rocks.

She has been sleeping from about 10:30 until about 7:30 for about 3-4 weeks.  We have had to go in and soothe her repeatedly from about 4 am until 6 am, but she has slept.

Well, last night she made it all night without needing us to soothe her (yay!).  My husband had to sleep in another room with the monitor  in order to achieve this, but it was successful.  She made a little noise 3 times and he waited it out and she stayed quiet.  She didn’t cry or scream once and I managed to do the same, hehe.

My biggest problem is that monitor.  Every sound she makes, even if only a deep breath, wakes me up.  So, we all made it through the night and now I am going to go get her from her crib, where she is silently stirring about.

Oh, she is doing so much now.  I am able to really enjoy time with her during the day.  She is so serious, yet funny at the same time.

I swear she calls out ‘mama’ when she is screaming and crying.  My husband hears it too, so have two sets of grandparents.  It is for real even though she is only 3 months old.  And two mornings ago she rolled over for the first time which sort of confused her a bit.

Missing Link

As much as I would like to have time to post, I don’t.

Well, I sort of don’t.

I posted some pics of Kira (finally!) onto my Facebook page and there is really only time for one thing per day, if I am lucky.  So. today it was Facebook…hey, at least I am posting this link!

I have been absent.  That is an obvious fact.  I won’t apologize.  I am too tired to do that.  Having a new baby is the most exhausting job ever; especially one who is gassy, refluxy, and refuses to sleep.

So, what am I going to do about this blog?  If there is anyone still checking in to see if there is anything new to read, then I suppose I will tell you what is on my mind about it.

I miss writing to you.  I miss my blog.  I miss my former life, pre-baby, when I spoke in a normal voice, had time to write and for that matter think, had something to say, had a sense of humor and had less spit-up on me…oh, how could I forget, and less luggage under my eyes.

Not that I don’t love my baby, so don’t get all bent on me…I just miss the way things were and I have finally accepted that they will never again be the same.  I am okay with that, but still mourning a bit.

So, now that I have survived what I am hoping is the worst part of parenting (the first couple of months) I am going to make a concerted effort to accomplish the following things:

  1. Find time to blog
  2. Think of something to say besides baby gibberish
  3. Post pictures
  4. Change my outdated theme
  5. Update with a new logo
  6. Get over the fact that I didn’t want to turn this into a “mommy blog” because I am a mommy and I can’t find the time to maintain an additional blog.  Don’t worry, it won’t be all mommy stuff and I will still throw in the occasional raunchiness to entertain you with.
  7. Complete all these things (in no particular order) before March.  Of this year. Hehe.

So, now you know what is on my mind.  Do check back occasionally, as I will be posting more often starting right now.
