Yesterday was Nicholas' blessing day. So I bought him a cute little outfit and some family came over. It was a really nice blessing....of course i cried(how can a mother NOT!?) and he cried through it all too. lol
We planned on some family photos, which i was looking forward to taking. That didn't happen! We came home and had a nice lunch which i had stressed over (yes, on fast sunday but too bad, i was having a luncheon and that was that) we talked and by the time photos were remembered everyone had changed out of there church clothes. damn. So we didn't get any family photos. So these are the only photos i have of Nicholas on his blessing day and in his cute little blessing outfit.

He looks like he has a big nose in this pic...he doesn't really. His cuteness just doesn't come across that well on camera. lol

And a pic of my boys asleep on our bed...just for good measure.

Hopefully we will take some family pics soon!!!

Things i've learned this week

I'm being a copy cat today - thanks Emily ;)

1. I don't do well without sleep - I knew this was coming, of course i did but seriously can anyone function on 4-5 hours sleep a night?? why aren't babies born with the ability to sleep for 8 hours at night??

2. I also don't do well with having a splitting head ache for 4 freakin days! - enough already, i'm over it. It hurts and i'm cranky.

3. My dh is an idiot - last night he ate a habanero chilli to see how hot it was. It was very hot. Then i had to listen to him complain for the next hour about how hot it was. I could have told him that and i've never even eaten one before. He suggested that that he was being brave or couragous for eating it...ummm no, you were just being stupid.

4. Thompsons Pharmacy Wind Mixture for windy babies is a life saver - This stuff ought to be given to every new mother!! Seriously a miracle cure and the best stuff i have ever Gripe Water hands down!

5. Turning 28 kinda sucks - my dh lovingly reminded me that i'm no longer in my mid-20's, i'm now in my LATE 20's. In other words - old. I feel old. My birthday was on Halloween btw which is kinda cool...or it would be if we celebrated it more here.
