So, things are busy here...and this blog shows it. I am sitting in Annie's room, on the laptop while she is rolling and playing and talking...she is very vocal lately- I need to get that on video. Tried to take a video yesterday of her blowing raspberries, but she stopped. It was still cute.

Sleep is going a bit better- don't really feel like getting into that now...I bought a book- trying some suggestions- she woke only 3 times last night which was a great improvement. she slept until 8am on Saturday- very nice.

Riley has a pretty bad cold- coughing and such. Think she got it from Annie, who had one last week- she is much better now.

Getting ready for all of our visitors- I am tres excited, but there is so much to do!!! Cleaned the downstairs today while Annie was at Grams and Gramps house....also went shopping and spent too much money on food....

Gotta to Walmart to buy more stuff and everything I forgot to buy earlier!!

at 3 months.....


Took a couple of cute pictures of Annie last night when she was in a great mood. She is starting to develop a cute little personality- she is quite a happy baby, and really only fusses when something is wrong- tired or hungry mostly. She had one grumpy night this week, but I think she was just tired.
I have returned to work- a post is coming soon on that and some of the challenges that I need to work through- mostly juggling everything and getting out the door on time in the morning! Oh, and how difficult it is to cook dinner with a hungry girl and a baby that just wants to nurse all night long!! Think she misses her mama!!!
Anyway, enjoy the pics...Annie is waking up.....

I got pretty good video of her laughing at Riley yesterday...just need to uploaded it and then I will post it...


Saturday, November 8, 2008 is the best medicine.

I have all kinds of things I need to write about, but just a few minutes while Annie is in her swing, so I wanted to make sure I documented this day...Annie laughed for the first time today!!! It was just a little laugh- she still needs to get the hang of it, but she did it!!! So happy!! Kind of made up for the fact that Riley had a melt-down at a birthday party today, and we had to leave and I was by myself, but I handled it well without losing my cool......ugh!
