The sun is out

Today reminds me of a line from one of my favorite songs when I was in the play Annie. " The sun will come out tomorrow..."

Well folks, the sun is out. Hallelujah! Alex seems to be back to his cheerful, sleeping self. Thanks to everyone who let me comments letting me know I wasn't alone and this too shall pass. Sometimes it feels like I am the only mother with downer days. The only one that once in a while would like to return to my former life. You know the days when I was up early, showered and off to work. The days when I received a paycheck, seemed to make a dent in people's lives and accomplish something. I know, I know, I have the most important job ever now. It just feels like I'm not always the best in my field, you know? Luckily the sun is out, it's amazing how much Alex sleeping affects my life and my mood.

I have been busy DIing my house, cleaning and making invites for my niece's bridal shower. It's been a relaxing but busy accomplished weekend. I even managed to read a book and get two baths in. =)

Well I am off to finish cleaning my stamp room. Here are a few pictures and a video from this weekend of Bug a Boo.

Jason and I wanted to do a few errands last night but Alex was still sleeping so I decided to sneek a quick picture which I knew would wake him up, it did. See he really does sleep sometimes.

Jason and I went through Alex's room tonight putting clothes away that Alex has outgrown. We tried on some of his hats and got the giggles watching him try to take them off.

He looks so Asian with his hat on, I love it!

Jason got him to smile. He weighed in at 16 lbs exactly tonight. Still little for his age but growing everyday.

So glad your little man is behaving for you! I think my kids are finally all we need to get together! Soon!!!

The pictures are adorable. Remind me to show you the picture of Hunter in the outfit his uncle brought home from Hong Kong. It's so cute!

Happy to hear that things are getting back to normal.

Oh my heavens. He is just the cutest thing ever. I giggled too when I watched him trying to pull off that hat. HAH! I love how alert and active he seems. Probably not fun for you, but it's fun to watch.

Call me soon so that we can get together!
