A whole new world!

So the time has come to spread my interweb wings. I have now left the confines of blogger and got my own domain. I felt like being a little more creative and moving to wordpress. I am going to try and do more posting...even if it is just a video or photo. Life is hectic but I only live it once.
So here we go:

I won't be posting here. For you people on the email list, I will show you have to subscribe via RSS on the new site soon.

Selfish mommy

At the moment, Landon seems to be in a phase(please God let it be a phase) of waking up early as hell and screaming at the top of his lungs. I am pretty sure he is testing us because it isn't constant like he is hurting. He is trying different tones to see what gets a reaction. Too smart for his own damn good.

Our usual rule is, he doesn't come in our room before 6. We just let him deal with it. It used to be he would just give up and go back to sleep, but lately he doesn't. Just stands there at the crib rails yelling. It starts off a GREAT morning, let me tell ya. So this morning he did his first chirp at 4:57. Ugh. It was once and it seemed like he was asleep again but I knew it would be long. 5:27 and the screaming is full on like someone is beating him. Now for mommy to rack her brain on what to do. Let him scream and not give in or give up just so you don't have to hear screaming for another 45 minutes until your shower. So I was selfish and went and got him. And you know what? I might pay for it tomorrow morning, but it was worth it. He curled up on my shoulder and just laid there. We swayed and he just snuggled. No squirming to get away. No requests for Blue. No head butts. No hitting. No fussing. Just me, him and the white noise. He then let me rock him. This NEVER happens. He likes to torture backs(part of his MO). We rocked and he rubbed his feet on me and babbled a little bit, all the while glued to my shoulder. Now my neck is on fire and I have a serious headache was worth it. Because he will never be 1 year, 5 months and 30 days old ever again. I will probably be cursing myself in the morning when he is up trying to get the same treatment but it's ok...I am a selfish mommy and proud of it...

The time I ran commando in the park...

This is a story I told to a few people and it was too comical to not blog. Warning: it isn't pretty.
So a couple of weeks ago I had some, uh, chafing issues. I had taken the week off to recover and decided to save up for my long run (7 miles at the time). I set out and I was feeling good. I now run from the house to Lake Lynn, around and then back. So I get about 3 miles in at the lake and things start going down hill. While running, I decide that my underwear is the problem and if I can just get them off, I will be fine. Now the conundrum begins. How does one get their underwear off while wearing running tights and there is no bathroom? I keep running thinking I can just ignore it. Wrong. I finally get to a spot in the park and I can't take it anymore. I look and no one is coming...and then things got serious. I found a stick in the brush and used it to rip off my own panties. Yup. You heard right. I totally went all cast-away on my delicates in a city park. Then? I kept on running. (I found a trashcan and threw them away in case you thought I was a litter bug). I ended up only making it to about 4.5 miles before calling Kevin to come and get me. My newly freed lady parts weren't the answer. It hurt bad. The funniness stopped there but I will always run by that place in the park and say "I remember this one time I ran commando in the park..."

Happy Birthday Jack Jack

When we adopted Jack, we had no idea what he was, how old he was, where he was from....nothing. We got a sweet deal on a great pup. He has been a great companion, a sweet cuddler, an excellent running partner, a sweet face when we are down, and is learning to be a great big brother. Landon looks for him first thing in the morning and was one of his first words. We gave Jack an unofficial birthday of Jan 30th so today we say Happy 6th Birthday to Capt. Jack Sparrow.

For the are some videos of the boy:
