Such a bad blogger. I ignore my poor little blog and while I have tons of blog posts written in my head, I never seem to have time to actually write them down on paper. I mean, on computer.
Things I’ve been up to lately:
– going through tons o’crap at our house in preparation for our move. I wish I was better at taking before pictures, because let me tell ya, the afters are awesome. Our laundry room has an actual visible floor, and I found about 20 cans of cat food buried beneath our tower of plastic bags. So our house is starting to look somewhat organized, and I’ve realized that we’ve been holding onto lots of worthless possessions. A garage sale is in the works.
– Frankie had his first Easter! We celebrated with my parents and Grandpa, and then Tony’s mom and siblings later in the day. Frankie gots lots of Gerber puffs in his Easter basket, and took part in dying eggs. And by dying eggs, I mean he sat in his high chair and screamed and me and my mother while we dyed eggs. And I almost gave my mom a heart attack when I told her that the eco-friendly dyes that I bought cost $15.
– Frankie went through a massive teething episode, in which I barely slept for about 3 weeks. This accounts for the majority of my blog absence. This past weekend, however, he gave me the ultimate Mother’s Day gift: the gift of sleep. On Saturday night, he only woke up once, and then last night, he slept in his crib the whole night and didn’t wake us up until 5:30, and then slept for another hour.
So this is what it sounds like when doves cry?
I literally feel like a different human being. I had actual energy today, and didn’t feel like biting my husband’s head off in some sort praying mantis ritual.
– In general, we’ve just been busy with organizing and cleaning and planning Frankie’s first birthday party (can you believe it!) and thinking about our move and working and more cleaning and keeping up with a teething/crawling/constantly hungry little guy. So can you forgive my absence? I wish I could promise to be a better blogger, but until sleep comes on a regular basis, I promise nothing.
