Sleepy baby

Here is my sweet baby girl after a day of playing with Grandma and us. She knew she was tired but didn't want to give up and sleep. I love the little hints she gives us that she is ready for bed. Other clues are 'the eye rub' and putting her two middle fingers in her mouth. And if she gets close to 'the lovey' she grabs it and strokes with the right hand and the left fingers go in the mouth.

It's been recently brought to my attention that my house could be cleaner, and less messy and cluttered. My answer to that is that tidiness isn't one of my priorities right now. When Jamie is awake I spend my time with her taking care of her, and when she is sleeping Mike and I rest/destress/blog/do school work etc. I know I spend alot of downtime on the computer, but hey it's all about the choices you make. I keep the kitchen clean, cook, grocery shop, do laundry, keep the stairs clean and clear (because she still goes up and down on her hands and knees); and try to keep the kitchen floors clean. That is about it. Vacuuming, dusting and bathroom cleaning is infrequent. So if you want to hang out in an immaculate house, don't come knocking.

I take my cue from my little girl and rest when I need to.

I've been trying to do a major purge of my scrapbook stuff, etc. Was keeping all of Ander's clothes to try to resell - and made $8 the last time. Outta here and off to Salvation Army. It's so hard to find time for projects and cleaning when they are only little for such a short time!

miss you guys!!!
