Ok It's Official



I've lost my mind!
During the day I swear I'm done w/kids....and at night when I'm dog gone tired I swear I'm done with kids....and in the middle of the night when I'm getting up to feed Reid...I swear I'm done with kids.

But in the early light of the morning when the baby smiles and coos at me and Lily is curling up against my side...and the big kids are off at school....I swear I want more kids.

The sweet boy is officially 2 months today (yes finally realized....every Tuesday he's a new week....but every 1st of the month he's a new month...yes I'm feeling like a newbie)

So yet again...enjoy my precious Dude Friend's Month photos....is he changing much??

I tell you what is changing? He has been getting tired around 8pm...but not officially hitting the hay until 10pm...which is fine...he's filling his tank up! The past 4 days he's been sleeping 5 hrs...except for last night....he slept...wait for it...wait for it....6 hrs!

He actually will fuss for a bit and put himself back to sleep...I've learned this during the day when he wakes up after a 30min nap....I would go and get him when he cried and then out like a light he would go on my shoulder....so I realized he wasn't finished sleeping...I let him fuss a bit the next day and he found his fist and went back to sleep on his own for another 1.5 hrs. WOW...so I tried it at night...he woke after 3 hrs....he fussed... found his fist and slept another 2 hrs! I knew I had a sleeper on my hands like his older 3 sibs...LILY WOULD NEVER HAVE DONE THAT.

Last night he woke up at 4 hrs and he fussed ...found his fist and when I woke again it had been another 2 hrs..I felt renewed some how! He actually went back down after his nursing and slept another 3...OHHH HELLO NEW MOMMY

For a little April Fool's today....

I told the kids school was cancelled and for a split sec I think they believed me....but nah! haha Oh well I tried.

I think I'll make some of these snacks for their surprise...

Cockroach Cupcakes....yummm

When I had my third kid I thought I was losing my mind!! I was so exhausted. Now that my baby is now 2, I feel like I'm not so much a looney tune anymore. HEHE!! Those cupcakes are so cute!!

Is it bad that I'd probably eat one of those cupcakes.. as long as there's not actual cockroaches in them! ;)
