oh man i dont know where to begin. im such a slacker. i always freakin do this. i start a journal and im really good about it for a bit and then i slack off. such is life.
kelton is 8 months old now. hes sitting on his own and hes really thinking about crawling. i can see it in his eyes. he scoots when hes on his belly and it frustrates him really bad that he cant get anywhere. ill sit a few feet away from him and try to get him to come to me and he'll really try and then hit his hands on the floor after a few minutes out of frustration. its really cute. hes laughing a lot more now i love it! hes really ticklish under his arms and he laughs hysterically when you tickle him. its so adorable! hes still sleeping REALLY well. we have now started putting him down around 730ish and he still sleeps til around 7 or 730 in the morning. we are SOO proud of him! hes perfection. hes nursing a lot less. we're giving him more and more jar food. i usually only nurse him in the morning, at nite, and usually once during the day. my milk supply is decreasing by the second. i STRUGGLE to get 3 oz during the day when i pump. and he usually eats around 6 oz. (with rice ceral of course).
so i booked our flights for california! we are going april 22nd thru the 28th...i am sooo excited! we really need this break. im really nervous about flying with kelton. i shouldnt be cuz hes so good but still i worry that i will be one of those moms with the screaming baby. ugh...dreadful. im praying that he'll sleep for most of it. im also scared that the time change is gonna screw with his sleeping time. 3 hour difference is a lot! we shall see. we got a really good deal on our tickets. we leave at 7 in the morning on wednesday and get to california a little before 11am. then we leave at 430 on sunday afternoon and get home at 130am. that part kind of sucks since we will both have to work the next day...but i think itll be worth it to get to spend the extra time with my sister. the tickets were 217 each. REALLY good price! i accidentally booked our flights a week after my scheduled vacation was. i was freaking out thinking that i would have to change our flight time which wouldve cost an additional $300. both of my bosses are in san antonio this week for training so i thought i wouldnt have a chance to get a hold of them. i sent them an email and my boss called me that nite and told me he had no idea why i was worrying so much and that they would work it out. HUGE blessing! seriously huge! my department is extremely anal about vacation time and we had to schedule our entire vacation time a YEAR in advance. thats how anal. but i prayed and God answered....amazing!
we have spent so much money in the last week its ridiculous. first our plane tickets, then we had to take our freakin dogs to get all their shots and get their license because our freaking horrible (!!!!) neighbors have had this ridiculous vendetta against us since we moved in for some unknown reason and they just look for reasons to piss us off. my dog got loose one day for like 7 seconds and he called animal control on us. animal control!! so we got this freakin citation against us and bryan has to go to court to prove that theyre licensed so we wont have to pay a fine. aldsnoeirwfjasdklflawelfknaweklfsadlkjfiafsw!~!!!!!!!!!!!!! makes me so mad. we gotta get out of here. 2 more months on our lease. we really wanna find a house to rent. im praying something comes thru for us. grrr... we shall see.
ok im gonna catch up more tomorrow. this is getting long
