This Week's News

I had a doctor's appointment and was prescribed 1/2 a Unisom tablet 3 times a day because I had lost 6lbs. since last month's visit. Unisom is supposed to help a lot with nausea. Josh and I heard the baby's heartbeat for the first time too.

Josh's supervisor let Josh take paid vacation days for those 2 he missed when his Dad passed away. Today his boss told everyone they were getting a 3 % raise which is only the 1st round of the raises they said. Whoo hoo.

Ryan was watching Oswald the other day and there's a character on there called Daisy. Out of the blue Ryan says "Daisy!" clear as a bell. What a big boy. He points at everything and says "ook" (look). He's getting better with his walking, but he is still gaining confidence. One thing that is different is his sleeping patterns. He used to sleep from 10pm-8am without waking up at all. Since we got back from Texas he's been waking up almost every night crying in his crib. Last night he woke up at 3am and then I got him back to sleep in 5 min., but then he woke up at 4am crying again. I took him to lay in mine and Josh's bed and he stayed asleep until 7:30. Josh has been was at work, so it was just Ryan and I. We can't figure out if he has just gotten afraid of the dark or spoiled to be in the same bed as mom and dad. In Texas he would sleep between Josh and I every night for more than a week. I need to get a pack-n-play and put it in our room, so he can sleep in his own 'bed' but be in the same room as us.

I got my hair cut yesterday. I got it layered and it feels so much better than it did. My hair is so thick and it was so long that it would get knots even if I used conditioner.

The realtors have been showing our house almost every day. We haven't had any bites yet, just looky-loos so far. We shall see.

We had something happen this week that may help us with getting a new house and not have to live from paycheck to paycheck. God really blessed us with this. I'm so thankful!!
I heard that a gal I used to work with, her baby was flown yesterday morning to Children's hospital. The baby was born on the 26th. I have no more details, but please keep the Baber family in your prayers!

My mom has Ryan for the afternoon so I can get some rest. I have so much laundry to do, but I am not going to stress about it. Josh will be home tomorrow for the next 3 days and I will get it done then.
