New Experience

So, first of all, I would like to start by saying, I am never going to be telling people about my child's sleeping habits again!!!! I swear every time I say something letting people know that she's doing well, she makes my life a living hell for the next 3 nights!!! That child has been up every 2.5 - 3 hours for the last two nights. I am absolutely exhausted because I'm trying to get up early and not sleep during the day so I can get prepared a little for going back to work next week. Tonight, I am going to be directly after (or perhaps before) the biggest loser is over!

Anyway, we had a new experience today... It was really nice out again, so I decided to try my hand at taking Belle, Jake and Elwood for a walk - by myself... It must have been quite a site!! But amazingly enough, it wasn't as tough as I thought it would be. Once I finally got Elwood to heal, everything went really smoothly because Jake will just walk right beside Elwood (he's such a good little guy). So, once they were both walking beside me on one side, I was able to push the stroller with one hand and hold them with the other hand - and talk on the phone on top of that!!! Ha! (okay, hands free phone, but I wasn't made with 3 hands, so there!) The hardest part was actually getting out the door... Do I take the dogs out first and tie them to a pole or something while I get Belle out and risk them getting off and running away? Or biting someone walking by?? Or do I take Belle out first, get her in the stroller and leave her out there alone while I get the dogs out? Well, I didn't like either option, so I had to finaggle a way to get them all out the door at once... It took us about 3 or 4 minutes to actually get out the door, but we did it. I hope it's nice out again tomorrow and we'll do it again and try to make a habit of it so that I can keep this weight off. :)

Well, tomorrow I get to go to the eye doctor and get some new glasses ordered. I can't wait! :) I've been wanting a new pair of glasses for quite some time so I'm so excited about this! And then Thursday, we get to go get our taxes done and hopefully will get some money back and work on paying off some more debt! :) I can't wait!!!

Sorry, no new pictures for you today. Maybe next time! :)

P.S. wait until she's old enough to do something really cute when you tell her to (smile in a coy way when you look at her "special", bounces when you say "bouncy bounce" counts to 5 when you ask)...
You'll be soooo excited and tell ppl about it, and showing the person, when you do your part, expecting the child to continue doing what they've been doing, ummm yeah, they look at you with this blank stare (conveys the message - My mommy is an idiot), and then look at the person you were trying to show (again conveying a message - you believe her?!) and yeah, you look like an idiot. It's not too far away - a few months mybe...

I know this doesn't have anything to do with your post but I thought I would say we received a package from you the other day, and Keith was looking at it wondering what it was and as I opened it and pulled out a yucky, dirty MTU hat he was like "that is not......." Then read your note and busted out laughing. Thanks! He needed that! LOL
