I am SO stinkin' proud of my little dude!!!!

First, he SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT last night!!!! Wooooot!!!!!! I'll admit, I woke up at 6:30, panicked because I thought something was wrong, since he hadn't woken up. Nope, I actually woke him up when I made sure he was breathing.

Second, we went to the Little Lambs sale in Staunton and he did SO well! He was in the Snugli (on Doug) for over an hour, but very chill. It was really loud in there, but he didn't seem to mind at all :) We got him some good deals! Several shorts, a pair of trunks, some shirts, etc.

Next, he slept in his crib for about 10 minutes! It was only the 2nd time I'd tried putting him down during nap time and the first time he woke up after a minute or so.

This afternoon we went to the park and we went on a walk, swang in the infant swings and fed the ducks! Pics of the park to come! After we left Ridgeview Park, we went to North Park, where they just put a new playset there - Doug went down the slide with Olliver twice :) and tried out those swings :) At Ridgeview, there were a TON of kids, but at North (which is a LOT closer to our house) just one mom with 2 kids :) I think I'm going to enjoy going there :)

wait. so the stoopid freaking background is there, but i had to restart my computer to see it! grrrrrrr.
i'm really mad at stupid blogger. i just wanted to change the freakin' background, but nooooo. now NO background shows up and i lost all my little "widgets" on the side - ollies weights (which are written down...somewhere!!! *sigh*), my 'buttons' and everything like that.

so freakin' pissed at stupid blogger. oh! and it keeps asking me if i want to put ads on my page to get paid for. um, no, just give me my widgets back!!!!!!!

Praying for Stellan!

Also, keep little Kayleigh in your prayers!

Stories & Swimming

So I had planned for us to go to storytime at the Waynesboro Library today. I checked and doublechecked the time - 10:30. We get there at 10:30 and their website was wrong, it was at 9:30. D'oh. So we missed it, but I'll try again next week. I say try, because Ollie eats cereal at 8:30, and then takes a nap and has a bottle. It was perfect timing getting us out at 10:30, so I'm not sure how we'll do with 9:30.

In other news, we (Olliver, Brandon, Beth & I) are signed up for swim lessons starting in May! It's half an hour 2x a week. I think it'll be good socialization for the boys.

Oh! And I'm going to sign up for a cake decorating class at Michael's next month! I'm excited! I love watching all the Food Network cake things and all the pretty decorations in fondant. I can't wait I think it'll be fun and give me something to do :D Heck, maybe I'll be known as the one who brings all the cool cakes to everything :D

We had a decent Easter. Olliver's been getting sick, and it climaxed this weekend, of course. Saturday we went to see my grandmother and aunt, uncles and cousins. Oh, and of course we hit the Carter's outlet :D Unfortunatly, he was in his carseat for about 6-7 hours that day :(

Anyway, we went to the dr's yesterday and he said it's just a cold, but he's wheezing, so we got a script for Albuterol (liquid, not in an inhaler). I'm only giving it to him when he NEEDS it.

Food updates: He's now tried apples, bananas, carrots, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, pears, peaches.. I'm sure I'm missing something. We're held up on making the peas or green beans because our Magic Bullet broke :/

I'm determined to get our house in a better order. This morning I've put 4 loads of laundry away, got more going and I'm trying to plan for dinner. Too many evenings it seems I don't feel like cooking, Doug doesn't want to cook and we get food from out. I'm going to start trying new recipes, I think so we can expand our choices :P I'm tired of tacos and spaghetti and blahblahblah. Oh, I'm also determined to find a mommy n me type group. There has to be one SOMEWHERE around here..

Ugh. I think I'm in a funk. I don't feel like cleaning. Dishes need to be done. I need to start washing 6-9 month clothes (and finding out what we still need). I have a bunch of books to post online. I have a box of movies I need to get rid of. Baby stuff has overtaken my living room. I need to vaccum Ollie's carpet (we have a runner for him to try to crawl on). Ugh. I feel like doing nada. I think part of it is because I have to work tonight (work? What's that? I haven't done that since before Doug broke his elbow 3/13! It's been a month-ish) and part is because I'm still feeling sick-ish. I'm a lot better, but still sound like crapola. Tomorrow AM he has his (hopefully) last orthopedic visit, so no sleeping in.

This weekend is going to be hectic, again. Saturday we have to go to my mom's to pick up her, my sister and nephew to go to my gmas. We're going to have lunch with my aunt (who hasn't met the boys yet), grandma and cousins. Afterwards, we're hitting Carter's (again. Somehow neither Beth or I have any 9-12 month clothes...whaaaa??) Then, driving home. Sunday we'll be going back to my parents in the afternoon for Easter. No sleeping for me anytime soon :(

On another hand, I really like the Ellen show! I haven't watched it in forever and I'm enjoying it :)

I keep seeing contests people are winning all this money or big prizes or whatnot. It'd be so nice to win $1000 from Ellen or a Volvo from Tyra :P

And, some pics :)
