I know some people think it is lazy and annoying, but before last September I was an expert and habitual snoozer--I hit the snooze button at least once every day before getting out of bed. And I managed to be a functional and productive adult! I'm just one of those people who wakes up VERY slowly. (My husband interjects "True story" here.) However, since Carson was born, I think I've set an alarm clock one time in the last six months. My alarm clock is the cry of my little screamer at any and all hours of the night and day. It has no rhyme or reason, it seems there is nothing I can do before I fall asleep to ensure any sense of schedule, and...there is NO snooze button. I could not be more in love with my little guy, but by far the hardest part of being a mommy so far has been the lack of sleep. I truly believe it would be a successful method of torture for prisoners of war. If only babies came with snooze buttons. That's my grown up Christmas wish.

I haven't had time to write anything new (just as I suspected before I was a blogger) so I thought I'd add these two pics. Even though the bath one is blurry, it's one of our faves. I like to think he is waving with his toes.

"Look at those blue eyes!"
everyone says.
I like it! Now get rid of this red block and give me some food.

Shiny things and boobs

OK, don't judge me....I'm still trying to figure out the technical side of this blogging thing. I'm trying to post some pics of aforementioned precious baby boy. I realized I have dozens of pictures to choose from, but I can't find one good picture of myself! That shows you who usually has the camera around here. Yesterday he fell asleep in my arms, and even though I had things to do, I let him stay there for a while. While he was sleeping he started giggling in his sleep. What do babies dream about that makes them smile? I thought about what he likes when he is awake and I figure that must be what the happy dreams are about.

But it's so pretty!

I'm in. I've totally been suckered in. My brother and several of my friends have these really cool blogs, but please! I don't have time to take a shower some days, let alone maintain a blog! And yet here I am. What does this say about my will and discipline that I have caved so completely to the peer pressure? In truth, it's not that deep. I just can't refuse a pretty template with my name on it. Plus, I'm a former English major, so I can't refuse an opportunity to say in one paragraph what most people could say in one sentence. So, Mike, Steph, Jim, etc...please don't jump off a bridge, because I may be forced to follow you. . Don't get me wrong: I'll narrate and express my opinion all the way down, but sooner or later....I'll try it too.
