bananas about mommy

I'm sorry it has been awhile since I've posted.  With school starting back and now being a mom, there is less time for the other stuff I used to do once the dinner dishes were done and I could collapse on the couch.  Now, there is bathtime and storytime and bedtime and kisses and cuddles and then I get about an hour and a half to veg a little bit before I get into bed and sleep.  I love to sleep.  Yessiree!

I will admit that we are spoiled and Jackson started sleeping through the night about two weeks ago.  He goes to bed between 8 and 8:30 and sleeps until 7 am.  It was certainly a gift from God, because the loss of sleep was the most difficult part for me. 

We've been having more fun with him, taking him on little trips and to the county fair the other day.  And while he slept through most of the fair, except the really loud tractor pull, it was fun to have a family outing.  We enjoyed walking around and the weather was great and I was so glad that we went.  I know it will be so much more fun in two years when he can pet the animals and ride the pony. 

I hope all is well with you guys and you don't feel like I've abandoned you.  Life has taken on new meaning, I guess.

You are speaking my language....the lack of sleep was the hardest part for me too! So glad you are getting your sanity back...it took me about 3 months.

Hooray for SLEEP!!! That was also my biggest concession and what I was so glad to have back!
I'm so glad to know you are doing well and Jackson is doing well and you're busy doing BABY STUFF! The night sure flies by now. :-)
He is ADORABLE!!! Keep those pictures coming!

I've been going around checking on everyone's blogs that I used to follow pretty closely and as I got closer and closer to yours, I was praying the first thing I'd see was a little baby-face... and that's exactly what I saw <3 Praise the Lord, deary! So excited for you and your husband. Little Jackson is quite the cutie.
