Yeah, I know...posts and pictures are scarce right now. But in my defense, my child didn't go to sleep last night until NOON TODAY! Yeah, we put him to bed, he slept for about 20 minutes, woke up screaming and was not really in the mood for anything. In fact, I FELL ASLEEP nursing him once and he woke me up to let me know it was time to switch sides! That was about 5am. I thought once or twice that he was finished but no...when I attempted to move at all he protested quite loudly. Finally, about 7am, I couldn't even think any more...he'd eaten again, been changed and rocked and sung to and had his back rubbed and we did his "leg presses" (ya know, to get the gas out!)...there was nothing else. I laid him in his crib and went to try to sleep...20 minutes and "Lungs" was at it again. I let him cry, thinking he was just "consoling himself to sleep"...I have read that some babies need to cry to fall asleep...no, he wasn't going to sleep for ANYTHING! Adam left for work and I remained strong for about a half hour and gave up. What moron decided that it's OK for moms to let their babies cry? Am I going to get any sleep with him screaming in the next room, or when he's in the room with me? DUH...so anyhow, he and I went through the above ritual until noon today; that's when "Lungs" decided it was time to sleep. Bless him...I actually slept for almost three hours after that ordeal.

So, my apologies if my presence here is not as frequent as it used to be. I try because I know it's tough for those of you who are far away! So I'll post a bunch now and hopefully that will tie Caitlin over for the next few days!

This is one of my favorite recent pics of him...this is how he practices getting his mouth open REALLY wide for those early morning "lung strengthening marathons"!

You might not be able to tell but that is a sticker from a banana that says "Stick this to your forehead and smile"...Dad thought it would be funny to stick it on Elijah's head...and on the cats who protested quite a bit!

You can go ahead and say it...he looks like his dad . I'm not sure what he got from me yet...maybe just a warm place to live for 40 weeks!
