I want to sleep

I love cosleepimg with my baby but I hate night nursing. Neither of my children have been able to cosleep without staying attached to my breast all night. Clara did it for the first year and here we are 8 months in and Sadie still wakes every hour. I JUST WANT TO SLEEP! Help!

I'm so tired

When you're 2 and you're tired you run around like you're crazy. When you're grown up and exhausted you just want to curl up and cry.

Bye bye

So yesterday after music class we went to lunch with Grandma Williams, as we usually do. We had Lu too. After lunch we talked about going for ice cream, but the girls looked so tired. Lu & Sadie were asleep before we got to Grandma's house. Clara was barely awake. As Grandma climbed out of the car I hear a tiny "bye" from the backseat. I look and Clara's fingers wiggle in the weakest wave. Then her head dropped and she was out :)

Oscar love

If there's one thing I get uber girly about, it's Oscar night. Even though TS3 is probably the only movie mentioned all night rustics actually seen, I still get all pumped for the glitz and glamour. Someday I am going to throw an. Oscar party where we all pull out old prom/bridesmaid dresses and let the littles dress up and stay up way past bedtime. For now I'll just sack on the couch with Sadie and my SILs.

Suspending time

So Clara woke early from her nap with a bad dream today. For half an hour I sat with her in my lap trying to call and soothe her. I talked to her, sang to her, stroked her hair. I wanted to freeze that moment in time with my little girl in my arms.

Post more often?

So I have an iPhone now, and I downloaded the lj app, so I'm going to try to post more often. As a parent there are so many little moments worth recording like right now when we're lying in bed with our little Sadie-kins and she's smiling and drooling and blowing bubbles.

I had a dream last night that I had twin baby girls from my third pregnancy. The big problem was that we couldn't agree on names!

Memories

Okay, so I don't write on LJ nearly enough. I think maybe I should use it more for logging memories of what my children are doing. I will try to do that. Like today when Clara was playing pretend like she was in music class, and she started "keeping the beat" with the rhythm sticks on Sadie's head! Um, ow! Poor Sadie was crying :(

Dear LiveJournal

I haven't forgotten about you :) I've just never been a good blogger. I'm a better "read what everyone else is reading, occasionally comment, and occasionally make a status update of my own" kinda gal. It's not that I don't like you, I'm just not very good at what you do :)

PS - I'm pregnant, and my daughter is SUPER clingy right now, so that provides a couple more excuses for why I've been MIA for so long!

Impromptu Party

So yesterday we had an impromptu party. Booger's flight was delayed a couple of days and he wanted to come to town and say hello to everyone. In 45 minutes we went from a "ho hum, whatever we want to do" kind of day to "we have a dozen people arriving any time". I finally succumbed to my mother's frenzied cleaning tactic of "throw it all in a laundry basket/bag/box and stuff it in the bedroom and we'll deal with it later". Of course, the end result was that we had a good time at the party. We even set off fireworks and spit fire. My favorite was playing board games (I love them and don't get to play them enough). I've totally promised myself we'll throw a game party some time this year.

Christmas was great. Clara got a little more into it, though she was still quite over stimulated for most of the days. My favorite was hearing her sing "happy to you" to her daddy on his birthday. So cute!

Trust me, it's a great show

Dark humor, but really funny - come see the show, don't be the bunny!
