Not Sleepy

My little guy has never been much of a sleeper. He didn't sleep through the night until he was two. Here's one of my favorite photo sessions from when he was about seven months old. He was supposed to be taking a nap, but would not go to sleep. He was so cute, I had to take pictures.
Now, he's almost four and still fights sleep every night. It's not a mean fight, it's pretty entertaining most nights actually.Last night, as most nights, he got really chatty when I turned the lights out. Here's just some of our conversation
"Mommie, I like valentines, they are so pretty."
"Me too sweetie, now go to sleep."
"Mommie, I like you hair. It's so soft."
Then he says the thing every mommie wants to hear...
"Mommie, you're the bestest mommie ever, you know?"
How does a three (almost four) year old come up with that?
All to fight sleep.


  1. Aww...pulled a little heart string of mine...very sneaky little one!

  2. He is adorable, great pictures! Thanks for commenting on my blog, hope you have a great day.

  3. I can so relate to this posting! My almost four year old was 18 months old before he slept through the night and still fights it. We have similar dialogue to yours each night and it amazes me how he can come up with some emergency that wasn't important 20 minutes ago but now is earth-shattering...all to avoid sleep.

    Glad to know I am not the only one :)

    I found your blog a few months ago and really enjoy reading...thanks for sharing.

  4. what an adorable child! He is too cute...And so smart too, he's figured out how to procratinate bedtime! :)

  5. What a total little charmer...Going to have to watch him once he's old enough for girlfriends....

  6. Mine is not a sleeper either...he'll be 5 next month. Just wait, the excuses and the compliments get even more creative!

  7. That is so precious I am dying!!! Landon skipped his nap today and I hope this doesn't become a habit!!!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
