I've been a jackass

Fri, 01 May 2009 05:38:51 +0000

I've been busy, my mind has been elsewhere...but I just wanted to jump in here and post some pics

Here's Owen!

Here's Liam!

Here are the two of them on the front porch. More later mamas, I miss you guys! Things are OK. The boys are great as always...Alaska is slowly getting warmer.

besitos.







we just won a swing-dancing competition...

Sun, 16 Nov 2008 09:07:19 +0000

really. our first date in ages and we went to a ball!!!!

I'm still so excited I can hardly stand it. I'm pretty sure it was because we looked the best (I had on a great 1940s-esque dress and men just all look good when they wear suits, right? ) not because we had the best moves...but we definitely had some great moves. I'll post a pic tomorrow maybe...

just had to share!




am I Satan if I Supplement? please help!! *edit*

Tue, 11 Nov 2008 04:27:11 +0000

I know that I am not but I feel like I am.

I went to the grocery store today and bought some formula. I producing enough milk. I am pumping a lot and producing just fine but I just feel like if I can give the baby a big amount...like say 5-6 oz before bedtime he will sleep for longer intervals.

Maybe I'm wrong but something has got to give because I am getting up 6-8 times a night with this child. He eats for about 5 minutes and then falls back asleep and then does it again in about an hour in a half.

When I went to the grocery store today I just bought the most expensive stuff because I figured it was the best. I know. Stupid. The horror of horrors, I get home and I see that the very first ingredient on the can is corn syrup. Jesus H. Christ.

yes...interesting post that begins with Satan and ends with Jesus H. Christ...must be my uber-religious upbrining...

anyway...thanks Dyna...got some new formula on order.

I did give the baby formula one night a couple nights ago and I couldn't really see any difference. He still woke up about 8 times that night. Last night, however, I brought the baby into bed with me at about 1 and we both ended up sleeping from 1-4 without interruption...that was a first for awhile. Liam got up at 4 ate a little and then went back to sleep until about 5:15...at which time I kicked him and DH out of bed and said, "you deal with him sweetie pie." which he did. I think he was just so grateful for the 3 hours of continuous sleep.

I'm not 100% sure why I've been so dead set on not co-sleeping this time. From the day Liam came home fro the hospital with us, I've had him in a little basinett, a co-sleeper and now he's in a little porta crib right next to our bed but I haven't wanted him in the bed. Maybe it's the memories of feeding Owen all night some nights or how hard the transition was to his owen bed (which wasn't that hard...it just took 3-4 days). I don't know. Sometimes I don't have solid reasons, I just do what feels right (this is a hard thing to explain to a man, don't cha know).

Thanks for all the support ladies...I knew I could count on you.




now...I'm just waiting to see if the felon that is my state senator is going to be re-elected...

Wed, 05 Nov 2008 07:39:31 +0000

a.k.a. Uncle Ted.

Probably if he's re-elected, which he probably will be, he'll step down and Sarah Palin, a.k.a. Alaska Barbie will take his place.

other than this last little bit, I am super happy with tonight's election results.

Owen is too because he's a big fan of Bob the Builder...so we've been singing...the tune to Barak Obama, YES WE CAN!!!!!!!

Goodnight from the last state to close the polls and unfortunately a very red state...




Halloween HO down

Healthy Mamas mid-week wail out

Thu, 23 Oct 2008 04:52:16 +0000

I know that doesn't make much sense. I was looking for a W word.

Things are happy here at the leighanastasia abode today. Today, for the first time in a long time I squeezed my old pants, pre-pregnancy, over my hips and could button them. They don't look pretty get, my belly is still hanging over them and all (and probably will for awhile) but they were on. Giddy up.

I did swim over the weekend. I wanted to run or walk but the rain was coming down in torrents (Lucy, I know you know what I'm talking about). IT was crazy. So...no running. I went swimming last night and had one of my best workouts yet. It was really good. I'll go again tomorrow if everything goes as planned. Kudos to Dh for really trying hard to get me to swimming when I want to. He's coaching a lot and our schedules are really tight. I don't tell him thanks enough.

I've started writing down what I'm eating. This helps me with the mindless candy that I will eat at this time of year...who needs candy? Maybe one piece but more than one or two...totally unnecessary, and I'm getting sick of people giving my son so much candy too.

Hope everyone is having a good week. Mine is much better than last week. I was pmsing something fierce last week.

besitos




have you ever seen anything more beautiful?

Mon, 20 Oct 2008 05:19:39 +0000

probably yes, since you all have your own...but I sure haven't.

so beautiful...he almost makes you forget how much you hate Sarah Palin.
