Hmmm... So, It's Been Awhile...

I don't even know where to start.  Somehow, I have not even had a few minutes to sit down and write a blog.  But I guess I should since Jackson is now 7 months old (seriously have no idea where the time went) and how else am I going to remember everything that's happened.

I never realized how busy being a mom would make me.  Not that I thought moms were lazy and had any free time, but I figured with just one I would still get to have some time to myself once in awhile. Hahahahahaha - WRONG!  I can't believe how quickly - and how slowly - 7 months have passed.

Jackson is crawling everywhere and getting into everything.  If he is awake, he's moving and he's making noise.  Never quiet and never still, but sooo cute *most* of the time.  I'm grateful for a baby who, though he needs his schedule, is pretty flexible.  Little Man can keep up with our long days pretty well (though I do try to keep from being too busy - sometimes to the point where I NEED to get out of the house or I feel like I'm going to scream).  He's already been on a few vacations - and we're off to Disney World in a few weeks.

I am tired, and I don't really understand people who say "sleep when the baby sleeps."  This does not happen (unless I'm lucky enough that he does want to cuddle for a little while).  Nothing would ever get done - my house is already not as clean as it used to be and I can never seem to get on top of the laundry.

Life is different, but it's better.  I love his smiles and his giggles - he's such a happy, easy baby (which I'm sure just jinxed us for the next one).  We have good days and bad days, but I'm trying not to let them get the best of me.  It's hard - not necessarily harder than I thought, but some days I feel like I can't make it through.  Eventually I'll get to that, but it seems that *someone* is ready to go... again...  Oh well, at least I started this thing up again.
