did that just happen!?

sorry... no baby pictures in this post...

sooo... 99% of you have probably stopped reading at this point. oh well.

night before last (tuesday night), eden went to sleep around 10 (good, but i wish that i was sleepy then...)

...i was wired... i couldn't get to sleep until 12...

then someone woke up at 2... then at 3:30... then at 5...

by 5am, i. was. done. i gave big daddy lee the ole nudge-a-roo...

he was up to bat.

he so fantastically let me sleep until 8:30 or so... but i was still pretty out of it...

BUT! when i woke up wednesday morning, i was determined to get ALLLL OF my errands done.

work. costco. grocery store. putting up all the stuff i got from costco* & grocery store. prepare some meals in advance.

the only thing i needed at costco? formula... they didn't have it. ugh.

...and nice long power-walk with shellie!! in my new kicks from my baby daddy...

i've reserved these shoes juuust for walking. good motivation for me. because i like wearing them... so, if i wanna wear 'em... i gotta walk!

welp, i did it all... with eden! she cat-napped here and there, but never really took the kind of nap that makes her mama proud.

after dinner & my walk, i had to drop something off at granny's... did that, came home gave squirt a bath and her bedtime bottle...

bedtime, right?

WRONG.

the child stayed up until 11:45...

i. was. done. no sleep the night before, no nap, and baby wouldn't go to bed... i was getting frustrated (...and i'm pretty sure the baby picked up on that, and wasn't cooperating)

no amount of rocking, feeding, cuddling, swaddling, etc... would soothe her to sleep...

lee had the magic touch... he sent me to bed (i was asleep before i laid down, i think), rocked eden to sleep, then came to bed himself...

45 minutes later, miss priss was up from her "nap"...UUUUUUUUGH.

i calmed her down, and just laid her in the crib... she wasn't asleep...

but whaddya knowwwwwwwww, she slept and woke up around 6am!

...and my amazing husband let me sleep another couple of hours. [sigh] he is worth his weight in gold... or platinum... whichever is more.

bottom line? i overdid it yesterday... and i'm pretty sure eden was TOO TIRED when it was bedtime last night. i know i was.

but on a better note: i am feeling re-inspired on the cooking thing (again.)...

lots of good stuff i got from the grocery store and costco... new recipes i want to try

AND... i just got my first kraft food & family magazine (well, my first on since it requires a subscription)
...thanks mom!! i had forgotten how much i love this magazine!! and the best part? the recipes are full of kraft products... which are always easy to find at the grocery store!

wow. what a crazy couple of days.

i'm cooking dinner tonite for girls night... its the grey's finale!! woo hoo!!

lee is working late...aaaaagain.

i'm trying not to overdo it today... hmph.
