through the night

This winter has been really hard on a lot of people, causing illness after illness and we're all trying to recover as best as we can.  The unfortunate part is the moment we get a good couple of days of weather, the temperatures change and we're back to where we started.

At 7 weeks, Emie was sleeping through the night with no trouble.  Since about 10 weeks, she hasn't done that but maybe a handful of times.  She's almost 36 weeks now, so you can imagine how I'm feeling.  After 36 weeks, it's surprising how your body can just adapt to no sleep or at least broken sleep.

A couple weeks ago, I got really frustrated with the way things were going for us and I went back to look at Coen's 1 year calendar and his blog updates.  Good news, by 10 months, he was sleeping soundly through the night, with a good bedtime routine and hardly any hiccups.

With Emie being just over 8 months old, I'm hopeful that by 10 months, we fall into the same routine.

My normal reaction is to be so frustrated and wanting to blame it on something, but in reality this phase doesn't last too long and while I would love more sleep, I'll get it someday.  And by then she might be in high school and I'll be missing these baby moments so dearly.

Don't worry though, today I put on makeup so that even if I am asleep at my desk, people might not recognize me anyway...

My kids are LOUSY sleepers. Both of them wake me up every night. How working moms survive I'll never know.

Sleep is overrated! I am not sure when I’ve slept through the night at home or even when I am away from my kids! Cheers to coffee!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

clomid vs. follistim

(IUI #4)

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "letters, 1", stating:

"what are the statistics on follistim v. clomid or other oral egg-enhancing drugs?"

Before I responded, I went on just to make sure I knew what I was talking about.  {Nothing like going through a medical procedure, thinking you know everything and then letting an Anonymous comment send me off my track. ha!}

Disclaimer: I'm not a dr. nor do I want to be a dr.  This is what I understand to be the difference.  This isn't fact, other than the links I'm posting, it's just my understanding.  Please DO NOT take my words for fact.

This is what I knew before I did the research:

Both Clomid and Follistim are ovary stimulating drugs that tell your ovaries to produce eggs.  They are both in the same in that aspect of things.  The physical difference is that Clomid is in pill form and taken orally.  Follistim is powder to liquid that is administrated by a pen/shot.
