Back in Action

Heyyyyy y'all! Last week I was so wrapped up in the paint project that I thought would never end that I completely neglected this blog. Well, neglected it more than I usually neglect it. During last weeks rain and flooding my ma and I started painting the house. We did Judah's room and the hallway/foyer. I really underestimated how difficult it would be to paint and work and care for a baby. It took a week, but it looks so nice! Once I get the decorations up, I'll post before and after pictures. Our foyer used to have a blue ceiling with green walls and a black and white marble floor. It was as ugly as it sounds. Now the walls are gray and the ceiling is white. I love it! The banister is next. My ma is ready to do the kitchen and living room. I'm ready for a break. Maybe next week.

Judah slept in his crib for the first time last night. I was watching the video monitor that Psonya sent me like it was a tv screen. Judah did great, I did not. He whimpered at 3:30 and I ran in and got him. Shame on me. I'll do better tonight. During the day he's been babbling so much more, it's really cute. We had a really funny conversation the other day. I don't know what we were talking about, but he was loving it.

I'm a contractor. My 2 companies are meeting to today to discuss my review/raise. My boss at the company I'm contracted to just called and asked me to be in charge of a major project. I sure hope that gets reflected in my raise. I'm currently on the phone with her wowing her with my great ideas. Well, I had some crazy ideas, but after I realized they probably weren't going to pay off my house or double my salary, I started giving her good ideas.

God really favors me.

I have a formal wedding to attend on the 24th. All of my formal clothes are form fitting. I don't know if they fit this after baby body. I'm going to up my workout plan the next 2 weeks and see what happens. I'm not even going to try on the dresses until the 22nd. If they don't fit, I'll cry and MrC will give me permission to go buy a new dress and the problem will be solved.

I wonder if I can post every day this week? I think I can!

You are not alone. We made the transition from bassinet to crib on Saturday night and I run like Jackie Joyner Kersee when I hear the slightest whimper. Hooray for raises!
