checking in

Hello Friends.

Nothing much to report today. I'm actually still in my pajamas, as a matter of fact. Jonah continues to eat like a champ and has gained nine ounces since the week before Christmas. We haven't had him weighed since then. He hasn't had a gusher in a week, and has slept all night for the last three nights.

I, however, have been getting in bed at midnight every night. Don't ask me why. It basically boils down to me being an idiot and spending way too much time watching TV and doing things on the computer instead of sleeping.

So I'm going to bed early tonight. The sleep deprivation is making me grumpy.

Jonah's doing great, and I want to be energized enough to appreciate it. :)

Hope you had a happy Wednesday!

Good for you! It's always harder to get to bed at a decent hour when you get interested in doing something BESIDES minding your offspring. :-) Loved the pictures of Jonah standing.

Late night computer and tv time have kept me from bed at a decent hour for many days as well...I'm shoting for bed by 9:30 tonight, myself!

So glad I'm not the only one who's still in her PJs today!! Hooray for Jonah doing so well :) Hope you get some good rest tonight.

Woo Hoo! So glad he's doing so well! I'm guilty of staying up too late too. I think it's because it's my only time alone ; ) Have a great night!

I so feel you on the not going to bed early thing. My child (2 1/2 months) was up with colic SO much last week. Now she's going to bed at 10-11, and I'm still up until 2!!!! I'm so tired in the afternoons and it drives me crazy!

So glad he is eating well and sleeping well. Get some needed rest. Enjoy the moments and this sweet little boy. Continue to keep you all in my prayers.

Great news re: eating and sleeping. I remember when I was sleep deprived and my little one started eating/sleeping well... I did the same thing! Tried to read books and watch tv instead of climbing into bed!

Take advantage of your free time to relax and sleep!!

Happy Wednesday to you, too! I'm a night owl, too - I usually end up having to work after I get the kids in bed, and then I end up doing way more than I should. Makes me very grumpy - I'm not a morning person!

Jonah - way to keep on growing! Hope you and your mommy and daddy rest well tonight.

Love from TX!

PS - I discovered today that CFA Sauce makes a really good salad dressing, too!

I am so happy that Jonah is doing well! He is getting so big! I stay up way late doing the same things and always regret it the next day...and yes I too spend a good portion of my days in my pajamas - you are not alone!

Robyn said...

So happy you are having some days of "normalcy!" Isn't it amazing what a healthy and sleeping baby can do for you! I pray that it continues and that sweet Jonaf sails past his first birthday with no major issues!

Enjoy your rest!

Yay, so happy that things are going well for the Williams' clan...yippee! I laughed cause when I say I want to go to bed early...the dang computer interferes with that on my end too...sigh....hope you had a great night's rest. Can't wait to see all the birthday fun...oh boy, a true milestone for your little champ!

Carol said...

So good to hear GOOD news!!! He is just adorable. I made him something for his birthday. I am an artist and it is a painting. It will come from Carol Childress at Alvord, Ia. Hope you guys love it as much as I love making them. Have a great time with your little guy!

Kelli said...

I'm like you... when the kids are asleep, I feel like it's "MY" time and I want to do things I enjoy instead of sleep. So thankful Jonah is eating well and sleeping through the night!!!

I was always exhausted when my kids were as little as Jonah. I'd go to bed by 9. How do you do it? I am tired now and getting ready for bed now. Go to sleep Zzzzzzz.
