funk



I don't know what's going on with me...I just can't get out of this bloggers funk that I've been in for a month or more.

I just don't want to blog...I'd rather be doing something outside or with my daughter and then when she is off to bed, I have other things to do. Dishes, laundry, packing for the next day. Ya know...household chores.

And I'm stressed. Beyond stessed.

And there have been a lot of bigger changes in our lives. I turned 21 on August 8th, Justin and I got engaged *big smile* and we are in the process of becoming homeowners. Wish us luck!

And then there is Laila, who is the most amazing baby ever but times have been tough with her. She has 5 teeth (2 on bottom 3 on top) All her top ones came in almost at the same time. So I'm dealing with a very cranky, teething baby. And I feel SO bad for not being able to take the pain away. Nothing seems to help...at least not for that long. And all the sudden she doesn't want to sleep anywhere but in bed with us or in her swing. I can't even set her in her pack n play without her waking up and screaming her head off.

It's rough and somedays I just want to pull my hair out.

Anyways, what's a post without pictures?




And since I take more photos from my phone...here are some of those.
*taking a nap at starbucks...how she sleeps thru the noise, I have no clue.
*reading her favorite Dr. Seuss book "There's a Wocket in my Pocket"
*playing with her ears during meal time
*standing while barely holding onto anything


P.S. this little girl weighs 17 pounds

CONGRATS on your engagement! Laila is getting so big! We miss hearing all about her! Hope her teeth start feeling better soon!

We're going through the same thing with Elliot. He's adorable, and I love him to pieces, but he's teething nonstop (6 teeth now) and we're having serious sleep issues.
I was in a blogging funk for awhile because, quite honestly, I just didn't have time (or motivation) to blog. I've brought myself out of it though, mainly because I just love blogging and all of my family reads mine. What I've found that helps me is to work on posts late at night once Elliot is (FINALLY!!) in bed, and schedule them to be posted later. I just don't have time during the day!
PS: CONGRATULATIONS on the engagement!! how exciting!
