My big girl

I can't believe Macey is almost 10 months old. She is such a different baby than Parker or Molly. Especially different from Parker. She points at things, says a couple words, is very friendly and is always into something. Parker was very quiet and kinda lazy, lol. I feel in my heart that she doesn't have autism. Parkers life would be so much easier if he didn't have it, but he has changed my life forever and made it so much better. I love that boy with all my heart, and I'm not saying that his having autism is horrible. I'm just saying that if Macey doesn't have it, her life will be a lot easier.

Before I picked Parker up from school yesterday, he got out late, I picked up Molly and we took Macey to the park. She was so happy and had such a good time. Here are a couple of pics:

Oh Joy

I have been really getting into crafts lately. Molly and I have been busy making things in our spare time. I have found some new craft blogs that I love. Check my sidebar for them under craft blogs. I'm still making headbands and barettes also. I hear there is a craft fair coming up and I'd like to try and sell some. It's raining today and I love love love it. It is so nice and cozy. We have a fire going and everyone is wearing their warmer clothes.

This next week is going to be really busy. We have a bunch of Halloween events to go to. Saturday my daughters school is having a fall fesitval/fundraiser for the 8th graders trip. I am supposed to help at the festival and bring: 1 dozen cupcakes, 2 cakes, a large bag of candy and a prize for bingo. Plus I am helping out after church on Sunday to get ready for their craft fair and baking a cake for their cake walk. Whew. Not to mention Parker's school Halloween party, feild trip and trick or treating itself.

It's our anniversary

I am so blessed to be married to my husband for 13 years! He is the best husband I could ask for. I am going to make him a special dinner tonight and blueberry muffins this afternoon. We are just hanging out today with a nice fire going. I am thankful to God for all my blessings.

Only my son....

Parker handed me a note when I picked him up yesteday. The teacher happened to be around so she talked to me before I read it. Parker had to stand by the wall today during recess. Guess what he got in trouble for....

Pretending to smoke a cigerette with a woodchip. Lol! Why me, lol.

I think that is pretty silly but I think the real reason is that he wouldn't quit when the teacher told him to. (Hey, it's a hard habit to quit cold turkey, lol) She asked him who he knew that smoked and he said I did. The teacher knew he was being silly and asked him again. He said his Nana did. The funny thing is that he hardly ever sees her smoke. Maybe he saw something on youtube. What am I going to do with this boy, lol. I love his humor even though I know it can get him in trouble. Silly boy.

I don't think I like this....

I thought I would like Macey sleeping in her own bed but it is making me sad. She slept through the night in her crib last night also. I feel like this is just the begining of her getting older and not needing me as much. I know this is irrational but I get sad when I get in bed and she's not there. On the one hand I'm happy, I know we all sleep better, Bobby's happy and we get some free time. On the other hand she's slept in our arms for most of her naps and next to us in bed at night for almost 9 months. It's hard to quit that cold turkey.

I started reading a book about getting baby's to sleep because I wanted her to at least sleep in her crib for naps. I figured it would take a long time. It was way more quick that I imagined. It only took a week or so. Now she is even on a scedule for naps. Now I feel guilty when I'm out with her and I know it's her nap time. I even feel guilty that I didn't have her on a scedule before. I can't win. She is so easy to lay down to sleep. I give her her bottle, read her a story and then lay her in her crib. I turn on her mobile, tuck her in and give her her soft toy. I tell her night night and then walk out. 5 minutes later I check on her and almost every time she is asleep. It's like she wanted to sleep alone, and she wanted a schedule. It is so weird. Maybe that's why it's making me so sad. Maybe I needed more transition, lol.

I had to start laying her down because she was having a hard time falling asleep when we held her all of a sudden. She's even been wanting to drink her bottle sitting up half the time.

I guess I know this is best for all of us. I just need to tell it to my heart. The part of me that wants to hold her all the time and keep her as my little baby.

The kids are even happy about this. We have more time for them and we can stay up and play games again. I can get more housework done so I'm not doing it while they are home all the time.

Sigh.......I guess I just need to get over it.
