so sad

I went to get my haircut today -- i was supposed to get it cut before Owen came but as we all know he came a little early. so I was going to this new place in town and i scheduled for today and took Owen with me knowing he would sleep the whole time and hopefully the hairdresser wouldn't mind. Well she did a wonderful job and was really sweet but in talking to her i found out that she had a stillbirth in March -- I felt so bad for bringing Owen in at that point. Having gone through a loss of my own I know how painful it can be and i was no where near that far along. She was really sweet and asked me lots of questions about him and said that they were trying again.


LORD I remember the months between our loss and concieving Owen were the hardest for me. Please give Erica the strength to carry on and i pray that your Will will be done in her life. I praise you for the things that you have given me and for the wonderful blessing of Owen. I pray that other women suffering from loss and infertility will someday know the love of a child. Amen

ramblings of the day

I have a ton of ramblings for today

first huggies diapers advertise that they ae baby shaped for comfort -- what other shapre would they be?? do something other than babies were them and i am just not aware? silly me to think that diapers wouldn't be baby shaped.

Owen's swing finally came today -- silly company snet me the snugrider instead of the snugglider -- they shouldn't name things so similar -- they both fit the snugride carseat but one is a stroller and the other a swing. He is currently swinging away wide awake but now a swack out of him

I am also annoyed that i bought Mike some new release CD's and the company didn't mail them out until they were already releases -- that annoys me because i would have gone and bought them the day they were released if i had known they wouldn't deliver them right away.

The scale is down another pound today even though i know it is impossible to lose 2 pounds in 2 days i still like seeing the lower numbers.

I need to find a missing DVD but i don't know if we lost it or if blockbuster did -- i suppose i should figure out which one it even is.

i chased down the neighbors lawn service today and got them to mow my lawn also -- yeah -- mikey doesn't have to do it anymore. They are going to mow it every other week for $50 a time -- not bad if you ask me to not have to worry about it

A Fluke??

Owen slept last night and i mena reallly slept. He got up at 2;45 to eat and then we were up at 6:30. Of course he didn't go to bed until almost 11 but i can work with this -- there is hope for sleep in the fututre!!

When school starts in the fall 6 am will be our wakeup time for Owen. He will need to be at the sitter by 6:45. So plan is to get up at 5 with Mike , get myself ready for work and packed up for the day then wake up Owen at 6 to feed, dress adn get in the car seat -- Hopefully we can do this well.

Then i think he will need about 2 bottles a day at the sitter and i should be able to pick him up by 3

okay i am over planning for a kid that is still only 7 weeks old.

new job in the future??

There is a new position open in my district and one i am really interested in -- it would mean moving buildings and packing up my classroom but it would be a better fit for me and would allow me to be home earlier in the day to play with Owen

I think if they offer me the position that i am going to take it,

Owen is doing great -- growing up to be a big boy -- he is getting ready to roll over. He can get his whole body moving to the side but doesn't quite get over. it is so much fun to watch him though. I never new that being a mom would bring so much love into my life. I love him so much -- He is going to grow up way too fast and become a big boy -- I am going to miss this snuggly time with him
