One Month Old

My baby is one month old... wow, it really does go by so fast!
We had his one month appt and he's 12 lbs, 22 1/2 inches. He's gained 3 lbs since his one week appt. Dr. Boylan says he looks perfect! But of course I already knew that.
We are getting into a sleeping routine. He goes to bed at 11, wakes up between 1:30 am and 2:30 am and then get up again around 4:30 am. Then he sleeps till about 6 or 7. Its not the greatest nights sleep for mommy but he's gone a couple night with a 4 1/2 hour stretch of sleep so I have high hopes for the future.
On 2/15, he surprised mommy and rolled over from his tummy to his back. He did it three more times for daddy about a week later and hasn't done it since but I think we can count it as a milestone reached (very early I might add).
He is starting to smile at us, mostly in the mornings, which melts his mommy into a puddle on the floor. He's making 'coo' and 'aah' sounds - adorable - and likes tummy time so far. He loves to have his feet rubbed/kissed/tickled. Does pretty well with the carseat (most of the time). And does well when we take him out to eat (all but one time). And he is a BIG cuddler - which I love (except when I'm trying to get things done around the house).
All around he is a very good boy who has his mommy wrapped around his little finger!

As Seen on Pinterest: Paper Towel Curls

I pinned this and put it under "Must Try" because seriously -- her hair looks SO CUTE and I want my hair to look like this:

And I can TOTALLY do that ya'll. So, I tried it.

Step 1: Start with wet hair. Me post workout shower [disregard the red face -- I look like my blood pressure is that of a 300 lb man in his late 40s really high after a run] with wet hair.

Step 2: Put mousse in hair, tie hair up in paper towel "curlers" rrrrreeeeaaaalllly tight. Sleep uncomfortably on back all night because said paper towel curlers are too tight. Wake up the next morning really excited -- you gonna be FABULOUS dah-ling [or so I thought].
I know I don't look excited but this is at 5:30 in the morning -- this is as excited as it gets.
Step 3: Take "curlers" out of hair and FREAK THE F OUT when you realize the curls are WWW***AAA***YYY too tight... worked a little TOO well. Maybe I need to just run my fingers through it. Yeah, I'll run my fingers …

Jason's Graduation: Part II

Dr. Allen, DC
4/5 of our marriage has been spent working towards this day. To say we are excited would be a great understatement. I can't even put into words how excited/happy/scared/proud/relieved, etc, etc, etc we are. There just are no words. Jason has worked tirelessly towards this goal. Countless hours of studying. Sacrificing time with me and the kids. And all the work he put in advertising and recruiting patients into the clinic. Personal training early mornings and late nights to help makes ends meet.  And I think of all the sacrifice we've made as a family. Living in a townhouse and then a tiny apartment. I've been the primary provider and a mostly single parent during some stages. And a constant cheerleader and standing behind pushing. We've both been pushing uphill for what seems like forever towards this goal. And we've made it. Not to discount his hard work, because he was the one who really accomplished this goal but I like to think we accomplished this …

Ramblings of a Panic Attack

I’m having a panic attack. These stupid meds are killing me. I hate them. Stick with it, stick with it, stick with it. I know it’s the meds. I just have to get through this and relax for a couple weeks. I hate this job. It’s not even that bad it’s just HORRIBLY boring. I don’t want to do this every day. I appreciate learning the process and gaining experience but it’s not what I like to do. I don’t even like accounting that much to begin with but there are aspects I like and I know it. The pay is killing me. I need money. I can’t continue to be completely broke before the first week of the month is over. Collections calls ringing all day. I’m applying to jobs like crazy. I’m trying so hard. I’m just going to keep pushing forward. Keep. Pushing. Forward. I hate that I wanted a life with Jason. That I was too blind to realize what he was. That I was ok with him even from the very beginning when I knew better. Why didn’t I want better things for myself? Seeing him makes me want to vomit.…
