I've got oodles of baby pictures to edit and long lists of things to do around the house, but I have been getting excessive amounts of guilt passed upon me that I haven't blogged in so long. Can you believe someone would guilt trip me like that? Someone I love so dearly? Geez, honey, just go get your own darn blog, would you?

Baby girl is much healthier. She is eating normally and she is her happy little self again. PLUS, she is almost sleeping through the night again. This beautiful little child started sleeping through the night at 5 weeks old has not gifted us with many solid hours in months. We are so very thankful she is cooperating again! I'm sure the sickness and all the teething did not help her sleeping situation so my fingers are crossed that it is up hill from here on out. (someone tell me it will be!)

Today we'll be taking down the Christmas decor. After that I just need to clean. Someone has a first birthday party coming up and this place is a disaster! What is it about the holiday season that has such a penchant for messiness? Or maybe it's just my house, who knows.

I'm ready for this new year. I'm trying not to resolve a million things, but just one or two. I always put such unrealistic goals on myself and then find frustration at the end. One however, is making better use of my nap times. That's to say that sometimes I need to be taking a nap and sometimes I need to do more than just putter on facebook. Maybe read a real book. Hmm, sounds like a plan.

Facebook eats my brain! I'm trying to not spend as much time on there either. Also, I'm only checking it once or twice a day instead of a million times.

And yes, it will go better for you with the sleep thing. It may not be perfect, and she may regress depending on the situation, but it will continue to get better! Our nights are getting better now too.

I'm typing this as we're BOTH on Facebook now. Hahaha. It is SUCH a time-suck!

I'm trying to be better about blogging, too. And I just uploaded about a billion photos to Flickr... and I'm realizing many are pretty much identical to each other (I take a lot of pictures at once, assuming I can edit them later, only it feels criminal to delete ANY picture except the blurriest ones!).

Sigh. There's lots of grace for the journey, isn't there? :-)

Facebook, Twitter, they are all right at my fingertips on my iTouch. None of this can be good. I remember a time when I actually read things written on paper

Well, my dear, I have just the solution for that dirty house of yours. Tomorrow afternoon, precisely 3PM, your former house maid will be coming into Grand Rapids. Happy New Year to you.

And thank you for the tid-bit about Facebook. I haven't joined and will continue to keep my foot down in doing so. I need to keep time availalbe for all the men I'll be dating this year. ;)

Glad she's healthier and happier! And wouldn't it be easier if it were all down hill from here? Up hill seems like a lot more work.

That phrase actually makes less sense the more I think about it. Who thought up that usage? Should you say "up hill" to get better or "down hill?" It's so confusing.

Glad everyone is feeling better. Being sick over the holidays is just unfair.

Happy new year to you and the fam!

It's not just your house it's mione too...messes everywhere and I can never seem to recover quickly enough around Christmas!

Love those pictures. She is so darn cute! Happy birthday to her!!!

So glad your little one is feeling better! I can't imagine having a Christmas filled with medicines!

And I know what you mean ... I seriously have GOT to step away from Facebook. I don't know why it's so difficult, but it is!

Happy New Year!
