SLEEP...What a delight!
For the past 4 nights Everest has only woken up once in the night! I fell like a miracle has happened literally over night... before this he was waking up around 4 times a night!! Yes, that's right my eight month old was waking up almost more than a newborn baby! Dark circles around my eyes cease to exist!
Lets ALL pray my near toddler starts sleeping through the night!

I said “good bye” to Aaron this morning because he is officially in the mist of finals. Which means
Angela + Aaron + finals = NEVER SEEING EACH OTHER Oh glorious finals how I HATE finals!! Finals are a life ruiner… they ruin peoples lives! I know Aaron’s life is being ruined because of them!! Somehow Aaron turns into this super robot when it comes to school work. His alarm goes off at 6:30am he pops out of bed, burns through a long day of class, hibernates in the library and has demanded no phone calls or lunch or dinner breaks until his work is finished. Who is this man? Aaron or Robot?... no one knows!
Good luck little hubby of mine!! These next two weeks are a tough one for you! I know you can’t wait for December 17 @ 5:30pm when your last final of the hardest semester of your entire life will be over!! …So until December 17 Everest and I will have a whole lot of mommy and baby time!

Happy Thanksgiving!

My Boys...

Thanksgiving is a time of year that you can take some extra time to reflect on what you are thankful for. I know it’s always an obvious to be most thankful for your family. But This Thanksgiving is different for me… with an added addition to our family. I am definitely most thankful for my TWO boys’!! They have both introduced a new level of how much I can love someone.
They are my joy, my laughter, my passion and my life!
I love you both!
Happy Thanksgiving!!

My newest baby niece is now one week old!!
Olivia was born last week and we are so happy she is here! Olivia had to get surgery right after he was born because some of her lower intestines were born on the outside of her tummy. However, taking the circumstances she is doing really well! She hit a mile stone yesterday…they started feeding her breast milk and she is digesting it really good! I can’t image having to see my new little baby in the hospital hooked up to monitors. I just want Melissa and Tyler to know that we love them and are giving them our love and support all the way!

I think I’m officially in CRAZY TOWN this week!... Anyone got pills?!?!
HA HA …only if I were kidding!
My child has decided to wake up 4 to 5 times a night… Wake up at 5 AM to play for the day… And around 6 Pm the past two nights he has decided to scream for who knows what?!? … Aaron and I are thinking he is teething…but than again it’s such a guessing game with babies…
I guess it’s just one of those lovely weeks when you officially decide life has made you go CRAZY!
Sorry I just dragged everyone into my loathing…ha ha…But, I know most mom’s and dad’s have weeks or days where you put up a mental sign that says,” GONE CRAZY.. Be back soon...”

The Infamous pedal!!

Aaron is currently fixing up a road bike. He has been really excited about this project of his. Today he came home from school completely puzzled looking for the pedal to his bike. He went outside to his car thinking he may have left it in there… well he certainly did find it in his car… except it was on top of his trunk!! He put it there this morning while putting something else into the car and left it there for the long ride to the University. He drove from our house…on the freeway…parked it at school…back onto the freeway…and now safely parked into our driveway. This was Aarons face when he walked in with his pedal!! I’d like to call this, “pulling an Aaron”! (This isn’t the first time he has left something on the top of his car!!)... Oh Aaron I love ya!!

Think PINK!!

It's breast cancer awareness month and I wanted to remind everyone to THINK PINK!!! 1 in 8 women get breast cancer... My mom is a fighter and survivor from breast cancer. I saw her fight her way through the painful process of chemotherapy and radiation. Even though I am soooo blessed to have my mom here today... there are 40,000 people each year in the US alone who die from it. I can't let this month go by with out saying, " Stand up to cancer and help fight for the cure!!!" LOVE YOU MOM!!

someone has his first crush....

Everest's favorite show is LITTLE EINSTEINS... I know you may all be wondering how a baby could ever like TV. However, it's true!! Everest laughs and smiles at the TV when we put on Little Einsteins! And his crush is ANNIE!! The cute little blondie. He ALWAYS laughs at her!!
So Cute!

Our three weeks of summer break are now to an end! It was a ton of fun having Aaron out of school!! We tried to play as much as possible and stay up late every night. Aaron is the hardest worker I know and not to mention how he NEVER complains about his busy, busy life. He makes it easy for me to love the heck out of him every day!! Just eight more short months babe and then your oust of school! Good luck this school year!

John & Kate plus 8

I thought my life was crazy with one child... think again! Have you ever seen this show? John and Kate had a set of twins at first and then sextuplets...that's right six kids from one pregnancy!! Every time I get done watching this chaotic show I realise how easy I have it with just one child! So for all you moms out there I recommend watching John and Kate plus 8... it will help you realize how much easier your life is! ha ha.. enjoy! I LOVE YOU E-V!
