7 am

Friday, May 5th, 2006

okay, okay…. I know I’ve been spoiled for the past 2 3/4 years. Lilah was a wonderful baby and toddler. She let me sleep in until 8 usually, sometimes 9 on a regular basis. Eden was also good. Once she started sleeping through the night…around two months of age…. I was able to sleep until 7 or 7:30, feed her, and usually she would go back to sleep, allowing me to sleep until 8-9…. when Lilah would get up, or once Sesame street would get over. Now both my girls are on a schedule of waking up around 7:15-7:30, today it was 6:55 for Lilah. Part of me knows that if only I took advantage of this I could get so much done in the day.(The past few days I’ve felt like it’s noon, but it only 10.) Also Lilah goes down earlier and takes longer naps. Like she’s asleep right now. Eden well she’s another story….I’m just glad that Lilah can sleep with the noise Eden makes. Eventually standing and playing in the crib gets old, she sits and goes to sleep, or I continue to go in lay her down, so she has that opportunity to go to sleep. It’s a battle every time now that she stands ans plays. I should get more dishes done with my earlier mornings but I find myself playing with the girls or sometimes studying. I’ve watered our gardens in the cooler mornings and I’m usually ready for a nap when Cailou comes on at 11. I guess I’m getting a schedule change. I actually feel pretty awake…. well see after reading my history book…considering Jon and I were up talking until 1:30 am last night.
It’s great to be in a relationship where we both trust each other so much, and have faith in one another. We both have our problems, but I like that we don’t become codependent and controlling of the other. I try not to anyways and he does also. It’s a marriage, but people also have individual trials. Most affect marriages of they become out of control, but many day to day trials are just that. Trials that are to be conquered that day, in that moment, and forgotten.

Stringe of Birthday’s

Friday, May 5th, 2006

We have two birthday’s in May, Jon’s and mine. June has Lilah’s and July has Eden’s. So we’ll be eating lots of cake.
Monday we celebrated Jon’s birthday fro family home evening. He decided that instead of receiving gifts for his birthday, he would give gifts. So the girls got a couple of books. I got a shirt that says I love my geek, the DVD The Best Two Years, plus a pooka shell necklace that he picked up in Orlando. He also picked up a little stuffed leopard, one of the Ty beanie babies. Lilah liked that more than the books and Eden liked the wrapping paper more than the leopard. It was a fun family home evening.

almost done

Friday, May 5th, 2006

The semester is almost over. I have a paper to write this weekend, and tons of studying to do. I have 9 lectures to watch. (four for English and five for my women’s class). To much reading to document. I have three finals on Tuesday, but luckily the English one is open Tuesday-Wednesday, otherwise I would be going crazy. I’m acquiring info for my paper and I hope to have it mostly written tomorrow.
We have two blessings to attend on Sunday. One is at 9 and the other 11. So hopefully we can still get home at a descent time and I can get more studying done. There may be a luncheon, but I’m not sure yet.
I’m happy because I’ve done alright in all my classes. I expect a B average this semester, which isn’t bad, though I’ve done better. I think I just want the semester to be over, so I can have the summer to do all the many things I’ve neglected, including spending time with my kids. Eden pulls herself up on anything she can. She’s gotten more balance, but it’s still nerve racking to find her standing next to things holding on for dear life. I think she’ll be walking by her first birthday, if not very close. Lilah took her sweet time. I partially wish Eden did so my life would be easier, but I’m also happy to see her grow.

It’s not very nice

Friday, May 5th, 2006

I was at my parents Monday. Eden had a doctor’s appointment. (9 months weighed 17 lbs 6 oz., height 27 3/4 inches). After the appointment I went to my parents so they could watch the girls while I watched some lectures. Lilah went out front with my dad because he was doing some stuff outside. When he was finished he came inside and asked if Lilah had come inside. I said no, so he went to look for her outside. I came out with him, since he didn’t know where she was. We called her name but no Lilah. He had just closed the garage so he thought she might have been in there. We opened it up to find Lilah coming from behind my mom’s car. Grandpa had called out for her before he shut the door, but she hadn’t answered, or hadn’t answered loud enough. She got two big hugs from us once we found her. Mom and I teased Dad about locking his granddaughter in the garage, but Lilah was the funniest. Whenever we teased him, she kept reminding that grandpa locked her in the garage. “We don’t lock people in the garage. It’s not very nice.” I think that made him feel the worst. She was okay, possible a little scared, but she didn’t cry over the experience which tells me she wasn’t too scared.
She does repeat that’s/ it’s not very nice with certain situations. Eden climbing on her or me jokingly bonking her on the head with a piece of laundry. It puts you in your place.
