A new normal...

I painted today!...painted!
for any of you who really know me, knows that this is me in my happy place!
there are few things I enjoy more than slapping a fresh coat of paint onto something. I've had people tell me that if my children would stand still long enough I'd probly paint them too:)
Being able to paint today proved that things are finally returning to some sort of normal & a schedule is somewhat in place again, and that makes me one happy mamma! Not to mention I have time to Blog about it:),this lady has been a sanity saver for me!
I know it's not linked up right but if you click on the link then scroll down her blog list to Sleeping Babies, you will find what I'm talking about.
She explains how to sleep train your newborn, & I've been doing this for a week now & only having to wake up for 2 feeding vs. the 5-6 that I had been waking up for-EXHAUSTING! (the 5-6x,that is).
I'm actually enjoying my baby boy now instead of just tolerating him, that may sound cold but it really was as bad as all that, there were times when Andy would come home from work & I just wanted to hand the little guy over to him & run in the other direction as fast & far as I could, I will be forever grateful for the sleep teaching method!
With his schedule in place he sleeps longer,he eats when hes hungry & not just because hes fussy & wants something to soothe himself,there are no bellyaches because hes not over-feeding & over-all I have a brand new baby! To put it in a nut-shell...he is a gem! there are days when I can't wait for his 2hr. nap to be over so I can snuggle with him,his smiles are limitless & I know that when I lay him down,he falls asleep peacefully...
Aannd, here is where I would've placed a precious sleeping photo but blogger is once again NOT letting upload pictures:(
For any of you bloggers that use Blogger & know how to fix this,I would be forever grateful for the advice:)
