Completely Random...

What do I have to blog about today? Not much really. I'm at work, I've been busy all day and it finally slowed down! I am feeling MUCH better than I did last time I blogged, turns out I just needed some SLEEP, and it sure felt great to get it too!

Me and Parker put up our little tree last night. We have a big one but I decided against it for this year because I'm afraid he would hurt himself in so many ways, so I got a little one and put it where he can't get it! Next year we will put up the big one and the little one can go in his room. I did let him help me "put it up" and he thought he was big stuff! Pics to come on that one! =) It was pretty sweet watching his eyes light up when I plugged the tree in, the absolute and pure innocence and wonder of a child. Beautiful.

I've been contemplating getting a Nook. I LOVE to read, and I do so frequently, but I think it would be easier if I had a Nook on hand. I am going to wait until after Christmas of course because I am spending way too much money as it is. I just LOVE giving, I know a lot of people say that but I seriously look forward to Christmas every year because I can buy my family the things they WANT. My parent's never buy things they want, so it is especially exciting getting them presents- I already got my mom and sister their gifts but I won't say what they are just in case they see this. And Christmas is especially exciting now that I have Parker. I just know he is going to be so excited on Christmas morning. I am so blessed with a wonderful family and a wonderful baby.

Parker has always had sleep issues... I don't know where he gets it from because I can sleep anytime, anywhere! He never slept through the night until he was 7 months old and even then he would only do it every few nights. He's had issues with ear infections the past month or so, so he hasn't been sleeping through the night now either. He will wake up around 2 and stand up in his crib crying, I go pick him up and he instantly lies his head down on me and closes his eyes.. if I try to lay him back in his bed, he screams; if I take him to bed with me, he never makes a sound. (I usually take him back to his bed an hour or so later and he sleeps the rest of the night) His Dr. said this is because he has learned cause and effect... he knows if he screams in the middle of the night I will come and pick him up and let him lie with me, but I CAN'T just let him stand there and scream... I don't know what to do, but it has gotten to the point of exhaustion, especially when I have to work the next day. Any advice would be appreciated!


  1. Yeah, we can comment now :O) So cute I love the new back ground

  2. Be firm for a couple of nights. Set yourself a limit (we use 10 minutes) and give him his limit of time...if he doesn't calm down, then go in and rock him. Don't leave his room though...that way he doesn't get his satisfaction of coming to your room/bed. Just some ideas. Maybe a few nights of him crying for a bit will help get him back on track.

    That's what worked for Kinley, anyway. And it was pure torture for me to hear her cry. Still is, sometimes.

    And yeah! I can *finally* comment!

  3. Thanks for the advice, of course he slept through the night last night to tease me haha! We will see how it goes tonight!


I LOVE Comments...
