a quick note

Sorry, I haven't written a real post in a while.  Things are in full fledge editing mode of the thesis and prior to that we had visitors with a rocky sleep schedule which left little time for blogging.  Nonetheless, I hope to put up a real post once this round of edits are through.  I hope you are all doing well, and that you are enjoying the first few days of fall.  I know I am. I love my fall wardrobe especially, probably because its when I can pull off jeans and a hoodie and be completely comfortable.  I am sure those of you in the south are thinking I am crazy for being able to wear more than shorts and short sleeves right now, but thats ok.  You will get this weather later when we have our crazy winters up here (though winter is another season that I love).

Anyway, the husband, the little Ben and I are presently all doing well, and hoping (and praying!) to continue this good sleep pattern as of late. But as Jordana says, kids are tyrants (or is it masochists?) and change their minds all the time with their sleep patterns.

a year older

This crazy girl turned a year older last Monday...

And now on to bigger and better things in the year to come...

Or at least we can hope. :)'

okay with me

The little one needed his mama to rock him to sleep this afternoon.  And you know what it was okay with me.  It's a rare occasion these days that I get to do that with him. He seems to want to be bigger than he is all the time.  And oddly enough sometimes I want him to be.  I guess it goes with the territory, but I really don't want to miss out on the sweet moments that remind me of that newborn that now are rare treats as a good sized infant. So we will let him be big when he wants to be, but he can be small too sometimes so his mama doesn't forget to love him with extra hugs.

lazy today

Well at least internet wise.  I did clean the house and grocery shop today.

So Ben turned 6 months old a week ago, and since then we have been having fun with him wanting to pull up constantly.  Here's a current pic for you all from our trip to the grocery store today. It was his first time sitting in the grocery cart, and he seemed to love it.
