Phone blogging is some sad clown business. So more than normal typos plz to be forgiven, yes?
My computer went wacky on me again so I have another appointment at the genius bar today. Blah, blah, blogging lite excuse #52.
I am reallllly hoping to launch the new blog early next week, just waiting on one last element. In the meantime I am reluctant to post things on this blog as I won't be able to transfer these newer posts & their embedded links over and comments will be lost. (Boring technical aside-I am switching to wordpress.org and have transferred all posts & links & comments already but there will be about 10 posts that are stuck in limbo-land, like this one. Those will be c&p manually.) so blogging lite excuse #1.
My cutie patootie turned four yesterday!! i want to write a separate post about him and his bday but here is a little collage of our day
Day in the life heads up!! Check out Julia's blog for full details: http://julia-transition.blogspot.com/2015/06/day-in-life-heads-up-for-summer-2015.html?m=1
I am working on sleep training myself now that Lily's sleep is finally decent. She still fusses here and there in the night but has been sleeping 7-5 more often than not!! However, umpteen months of waking 2-4 times a night has me in a bad sleep pattern and I am prone to reverting back to a pattern of pregnancy-style insomnia where I am awake from 2-5 am (this is why I am still managing to read so much). Anyway, to sleep train myself I am skipping all alcohol and getting in bed by 8:30 pm and reading for an hour - reading a REAL book - and also avoiding my phone/ipad right before bed. I am also taking a 1/2 a unisom in the short term (maybe for a week?) to really get a solid sleep pattern back. I am hoping this works and I can get some energy back. I have been feeling utterly zombified. I am also getting my thyroid and hemoglobin checked just to make sure it is not something beyond classic sleep deprivation. Oh-I am also getting my copper IUD (paraguard) removed next week. Gave it a year but the periods remain insane, like INSANE IN THE MEMBRANE insane, and it is not worth it. I can't imagine it is a healthy thing to have a week long period heavier than post childbirth bleeding each month. Sorry to share but true. Hopefully I am not anemic due to the blood loss but I wouldn't be surprised if I was. So no more IUDs now that I have tried both. No more pills or nuva rings or depo provera either as I have done all those in the past, too. Essure makes me nervous. But I want at least two forms of birth control so I think charting plus condoms plus soon-to-be-scheduled vasectomy? Blah. Why must this be so complex??
Ok, I have reached my phone typing quota so I must sign off! Here are a few more pics before I go.
The family cake.
Party cupcakes. Idea from several pinterest examples but they all had broken links. Basically it is fruit by the foot and candy eyeballs. The mouths turned out all crazy and the cupcakes make me laugh but they are cute and recognizable and Ollie loved them so I am happy with my effort.
I do wonder if she was made extra super cute to help make the nearly nonstop whining more tolerable ;)
Ok, byeeeeeee friends!
