And three weeks later....

Ian is now out in San Diego doing his Coast Guard thing. He's quite happy. He has a little seniority over the other guys he's bunking with because of his college degree. He works from 7am until 1pm, with guard duty on some nights. And did I mention he is in San Diego? Where is it gorgeous most of the time? We do miss him quite a bit, though.

Alexander is now 10 months old. We've been putting him to bed awake most nights. Chris and I are unhappy that we didn't start doing that when he was 6 months old, but better late than when he can call us by name. He's gotten pretty good at going to sleep. He'll cry or fuss for a couple of minutes, but then goes right to sleep. When I went in to check on him last night, this is what I found:

Yeah, I think he was a little tired. Don't worry, I moved him so that he was more comfy. Poor little guy.
On the fat front, I am just that. Fat with a capital F. I have to get my eating under control. I'm at the point where I'm only nursing 2-3 times a day, so I don't need as many calories as I did, but I'm so used to having them that I want them. And I crave carbs All. The. Time. Like never before. Plus, things are stressful at work. State testing is coming up for our high school kids. For those of you who didn't grow up in NY or California (for a period of time) and have never experience a Regents exam, particularly the English Regents, you should check it out here. It's a really hard test...especially day two, part B. Yes, it's a 2 day exam. Lucky NYS 11th graders. Plus, I'm trying to pack my cluttered office so it can get moved over the summer. When I say cluttered, I mean it. I have a frightening amount of materials. Sigh.
Hope all of you are fairing well so far this June.

Aw precious baby!

Look woman, stop beating yourself up because that only leads to more stress and more carbs. Take care of yourself because you deserve the best. Baby steps!

I missed you! Blog more!

Don't let the cravings get you down. You'll make it through.
