Sunday Snipits

I have been such a bad blogger lately.  I think all this heat is frying my brain.  I am still not sure I can put together a full post so I decided to fill everyone in with some shorter snipits of what's been going on!

* Today me and Aiden are going with my mom and brother to visit one of his friends, also 18, who he used to play with all the time after school.  She just had a little boy about 2 weeks ago and we are going to see him and take all the gifts we have for them.  Besides your typical baby outfits and a diaper cake I throw in a lot of things that will be SOO useful for her since she's a young mother.  I threw in a bunch of baby food jars that don't expire until next summer that Aiden never got to.  I threw in a baby's first box of Oatmeal again I got it on sale but it never got opened and she'll get to it in plenty of time.  I also have not 1, not 3, not 6, but 12 coupons for the smaller cans {$15 value ea} of Good Start formula.  She had to start with formula so those will be so helpful to her. 

* Aiden's sleep habits are killing me.  We will get 2 or 3 nights of sleeping from 8pm-6am or so.  I love it.  Then we gets 3 or 4 days of him waking up every few hours.  Last night I got up with him 4 times between 1030pm-530am.  We can't let him cry it out because my in-laws don't approve and try to go "save him".  I understand, I even want to save him from crying, but I know what we are doing is for the best in the end.  The night we tried it living here we only got in 10 minutes of crying before my father in law tried to go in Aiden's room and gave up.  I just don't know what to do.  Is this a phase at this age??

* Aiden smiles real big everytime he sees a camera flash at him.  It's the funniest thing, so here are 2 pictures of him doing just that this week.  He also has mastered "bye bye" and waves when we just say the words now.  No one has to wave for him to know what to do.  He also waves a lot of the time when I say "see you later". 
* I am feeling fatter every stinking day.  I think I made the choice to go back on weight watchers again.  I think I'm going to just do the online because I know what to do now.  I then will just pay the small meeting fee for each meeting I go to.  It's only $40 bucks for 3 months online, which is the cost of 1 month of the meetings fee.  Hopefully I can get started this week.

* I have started thinking about Aiden's 1st birthday.  The colors are blues and orange.  I've already got some cute ideas, like I found a big light blue bowl at Target for cheap and I am going to fill it with goldfish crackers for the kids to munch on.  So I'm sure I'll update with birthday stuff soon.

* My husband makes the best coffee for me.  It's even better when he brings it to me in the morning!

* Lastly we spiked up, and by we I really mean my husband, Aiden's hair.  It's gettig a bit long on top and is soo curly.  It looked really amusing so we left it all day and took pictures.  Look for those pictures on Wordless Wednesday!

Oh, the sleep thing is such a killer, isn't it? And it's got to be so much harder when you've got in-laws with different ideas than you! You might check out "the sleep lady." Her method seems like a really good compromise between the cry-it-out and totally no-cry methods and I know at least one person who found that it worked perfectly for them! We did something very similar with our little one when her sleep schedule totally got jacked up around 6 or 7 months old.

Good luck! It does get better and they do eventually sleep through the night!
