Just wanted to say Happy Birthday to my Dad (Papa Dave!) Wish we could have gotten together with you today, but we're thinking of you and love you so much! I was hoping Lila would hold the sign a little better, but she was bound and determined to eat it instead! Happy Birthday!

I'm looking forward to my week off, I have to finish work tonight, and am back again tomorrow, then I have a WHOLE WEEK OFF! I just checked the weather too, and it looks like it's going to be reasonably nice out! Lila loves being outside, and I love going out for walks with the whole family when Ryan comes home from work. Sometimes it feels like it's the only time him and I get a chance to talk! Guess that's about it for now! Good night, well actually, good morning!

FINALLY!! It's Friday! Whew.... thought it would never get here! This week felt particularly long for some reason, I'm very glad it's over! I really missed my family this week while I was at work. All I wanted was to be home spending time with them. Lila seems to grow by leaps and bounds and I feel like I'm missing so much when I'm gone in the evenings. She had "dress your best" and "crazy hair" days at daycare this week. Ryan is the one who gets her going, so bless his heart, he even remembered to take pictures (they weren't great though). She won "CRAZY HAIR" day with her Rock Star mohawk!!! My little rocker, haha, I love it!!!
Ryan had to be to work early yesterday morning when we normally do our "Lila swap" when I get off work. My father-in-law was able to get her and spend 45 minutes or so with her until I could get over there to pick her up. I met him at a Caribou, and the minute I walked in the door, her face lit up and she gave me the biggest smile! I melted! She is amazing! My little gift from God, I couldn't love her more!!!! She normally is really good about eating her food, but the past few days, she must be on hiatus, cause she's much more interested in playing with her food than eating it! She's most definately got some "reserve", so I'm not really worried about her not eating much. It's not like she's gonna waste away on me.... those thighs alone would keep her going for a week I'm sure! HA!
Yesterday we spent time outside (even though it was quite blustery). She would make the funniest faces when a big breeze would hit her, then she'd laugh like it was the greatest thing! We took a nice walk when Ryan got home from work, and I was delighted that it was warm enough to wear shorts!!!
Today is a little cooler, but still nice, so as soon as miss Lila wakes up from her nap, we're headed out to run some errands! Oooh... grocery shopping... so exciting! Ha!
This weekend we're heading over to WI to visit Ryan's extended family. Many of them haven't had the pleasure of meeting our pride and joy, so we're going to go show her off! It'll be a busy weekend, with plenty of time on the road, but it's important to get over there and see everyone, so now is as good a time as any! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

The weekend was pretty great actually. Ryan finally started feeling better after batteling an awful cold all week. Lila's 2nd bottom tooth popped through and has now been sleeping through the night again... HOORAY! So all weekend she slept from 8p-6am, which in turn, meant that both mommy and daddy slept well too! It's really amazing what sleep can do for a person's mood and demeanor! We got to see some friends as well. The Quint's (Heather, Jason, Ryleigh, and Landree) came for a visit on Saturday. We took some pictures of the family, but mostly Miss Landree, as she is 4 months old now!! What a big girl! It was so great to visit with them! Ryan told me I talked to much.... Sorry guys, I just wish we could see each other more than every other month. Cory and Abby came down last night and had dinner too, we never seem to see them either... man, it sucks being a grown up....everyone has commitments and responsibilities and time for visiting really is limited. Guess it makes you really appreciate the time you do get!
I guess I can't claim that I'm always all that responsible however. I am going to be a bridesmaid in my friend Sarah's wedding in a few weeks. Yesterday around 11, I'm in the shower, getting ready for a day of hanging out and loungin with Ryan and Lila on the couch, my mom calls.... Ryan comes into the bathroom and says "Ana, when in Sarah's bridal shower?" to which I answer "May 2nd... same day as her bachelorette, why?" He says "your mom's on the phone and says it's today" I say " Na uh, it's on the 2nd". He asks me where my invite is and I tell him it's on the fridge next to the wedding invitation. A few seconds later he comes back in the bathroom and informs me "You're a BAD friend! It's today ", to which I reply "Oh *#@!...". Am I a loser or what?? Nice friend huh? Seriously, I got the invite, looked at it, said to myself "oh, cute invitation" and stuck it on the fridge. Never even spared a glance at the date.. I'm a moron. Geez. Well, at least I made it there.
Anyway... the week will probably be par for course, nothing to exciting going on. Lila does have "Dress your best Day" and "Crazy Hair Day" this week at daycare, so I'll be sure to get some of those pics up when I can. I think the weather is supposed to be nice, so I'm looking forward to how green everything should be after a few days of rain, once the sun comes out!

It's been an up and down day for me. Mostly up, I think.... but the down, well, it's a big downer. Work has been tough lately, the moral is pretty crappy and today I'm feeling it more than ever. I really do love my job, but after all this chaos, I'm not so sure I'll be nearly as happy there. Guess we'll see.
On a better note, Lila seems to be feeling much better! She had her 6 month check-up today and is doing great! My big girl is 18lbs and almost 28 inches (70% for weight and head, and 97% for height!) She doesn't have an ear infection (thank goodness), just a little fluid build up, probably from being so congested the past week! She did get another 3 shots today, to which, she loudly protested, but she was a fairly happy little baby the rest of the day! This was quite a blessing, because Ryan is in Detroit tonight for business, so it's just me, Lila, and the hounds! I'm hoping she sleeps well tonight, however, being sick the past few weeks has really thrown a wrench in her sleep patterns and it's been quite awhile since she's slept more than 4-5 hours in a row. I think tonight may be a good night to attempt a little sleep training. I'm encouraged by the pediatrician, who informed me that most 6 month olds should be sleeping through the night; no need for midnight feedings. Guess we'll see how this goes huh?
Well, Lila is down for now, I'm gonna go get in my J's and sit on the couch and finish watching the series finale of ER (it's taken me a week to get through it!), then I might read a little. Good night to all!
