inspiring blog

i'm under the weather... doesn't that sound kind of nice-- when actually it is just miserable... i'm sick w/ a bad cold again, but somehow saying that i am "under the weather" makes me feel like it isn't so bad. that is my reason for not posting much at lately.
but i just stumbled upon a beautiful blog that i intend to follow from now on http://www.aholyexperience.com/
and this old post on her blog is just what i have been learning lately! http://www.aholyexperience.com/2008/09/of-steam-escape-and-pressure-work.html

late valentine

video

i thought it was so clever that elisha had thought to put his valentines in the shutter slots... he had a lot of fun coloring them and handing them out.

it was CRAZY... but worth it









































as you can see i racked up at the gwinnett county consignment sale... and i got even more stuff--- tons of board books for 1 or 2 dollars each, several great parenting books, a baby swing for $15, a little in bed co-sleeper for $10 and a "gypsy mama" cotton gauze wrap sling for $20... which you usually spent $50 to get used! i got all 60 items for under $200. i think we are set for the summer... but i can't help myself- i have to check out the boutique armoire sale. i lost track of time b/c my cell battery died and didn't leave until 7, then got lost coming home-in the dark w/ my toddler... neither of us having had dinner(plenty of snacks for e to keep him happy while i shopped, though) we were halfway to athens before i was sure of my mistake. we didn't get home until 9!!! but i think it was worth it. i'm so excited about the little silver ballet shoes especially ;-)

why i love a paci

... not for myself mind you- for my son... he has been a big fan of the paci from the get go, and now we have a very workable situation where the paci stays clipped to his sleep sack that only comes out for sleeping. it is one thing that makes him glad to be spending some time in his crib... he will hang out happily in his crib for quite a while after he wakes up - i guess b/c he loves the quality time w/ his paci and knows that when he calls us to get him out he will have to leave it behind ;-)
but the real reason for this post is that e just fell and took a pretty good bite into his tongue. this is not the first time that he have dealt with a bloody mouth- and the best thing is the paci b/c it soothes him, but most importantly it applies pressure to the wound and helps stop the bleeding. when he almost bit through his lip i was so thankful for it b/c he was not letting me hold anything up to his lip, but the paci did the trick!
