Ruby slept better last night. Not great, but better. Whew! Is the end in sight? Are these teeth FINALLY going to make their appearance? Who knows... who knows!<br>
Of course, I woke up with really stuffy sinuses, and a headache... so once again, I think the teeth have made me sick. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> This first year stuff is hard! my baby is in a fun happy mood today too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> off to make some cupcakes for a work event watch Ruby scamper!

I can't believe its May already. Can't The Shrub get some congresspeople to make April longer?<br><br>
Our house is in complete dissaray. We have had to rearrange the entire house and all of Raven's stuff is in the dining room. If anyone knows any 10 year-olds, you know this is A LOT of stuff! I need to get rid of the changing table and a queen size box-cpring before we can even begin to paint her room. Plus, we are running on only one bathroom because we can't get anyone over to install linoleum in a 4x7 bathroom and noone around here has time or skill to do it because there are a million other projects that this moving project spawned.<br><br>
On the plus side... Nigel has slept in his own bed all night for the past few nights. No crying or fussing or anything! I can sleep in the bed again! (I had to quit the family bed because I was in agony from all night nursing and he slept just fine with DH?-)<br><br>
Anywho... Someday i hope to leave the house again.

Hey, I can actually get through the May thread at this point! Though I'm sure after today I'll be unable to keep up... My 8 week old and 2.5 year old really don't let me sit at the computer for more than 3 minutes.<br><br>
Are we going to have the calendar for happens in PDX again? It was an easy way for me to keep track with my crazy life.<br><br>
I also saw that IKEA opens sometime this summer. I can't wait because I need cheep dark curtains for my son's room so he sleeps longer than 5:45 am. It's killing us with the no sleep at night from Gracie and then Indy getting up ready to rumble at the crack of dawn!!!

we are going to be getting some blackout curtains or just blackout fabric from the fabric store soon. the light starts coming in as soon as the sun is up, and thats when Addys sleep starts to get lighter and lighter. Morgan ends up waking her up most days and its getting harder and harder to get her back to sleep as the day starts earlier.<br>
speaking of early days, J was supposed to be here at 8:15. so we woke up at 7:45. an hour and a half earlier than normal. we are TIRED. and still waiting for MissJ.<br><br>
MAY!!!! oh i love May! my sisters birthday is today. my brothers is on thursday, mine is the 12th and Morgan and my cousin Mary (Addys favorite person other than myself DH or nana and papa) share a birthday may 17th. the month is full of celebrations for us. not to mention Beltane today!!!! as soon as J gets here we are going to bundle up, gather flowers, and leave them on the doorstep of our favorite neighbors.<br><br>
ok, FANTASTICAL NEWS!!!<br>
most of you remember the drama surrounding Morgans lack of bonus at work when everyone else got one. etc right?<br>
well yesterday he came home early.<br>
and put an envelope under my nose.<br>
i was shocked to see him at 3:45. and even more shocked to see the numbers on the check that was in the envelope!<br>
it took a month to cut through all the red tape of policies, etc, but his higher ups pushed HARD for an exception and got him a prorated bonus!!!!! and its ncie too.<br>
enough to finish paying off Pam, buy both carseats, and get a few other things we NEED before the bebe is born. HOORAY!!!!!<br>
the stress this takes off of all of us is enormous!<br>
Morgan is going to stop working so much overtime.<br>
we get to see him for two whole days a week again! and he is going to start sleeping past 4 am. YAY! oh this is a nice nice feeling.<br>
*sigh*<br>
so thursday come rain or shine, Missj or no MissJ, we are going to the zoo! or OMSI, or something else super fun fun fun as a family! YAY!<br>
can you tell i am filled with glee?

Did they tell Talula to wake up screaming at 1 a.m. just to mix it up a bit?<br><br>
Glad you ladies are getting some much-deserved sleep, finally.

I agree, Ruby and Grey must have passed off the crappy sleeping to Talula. She just woke from a 1:45 nap. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">Of course She was in the wrap, but I watched little house on the prarie and knit for an HOUR! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
