I just really quickly wanted to say hi and let you all know I am still alive. I am working again (40 hours) and am super exhausted, I feel like I can never get enough sleep and a m very tired (hence the no blogs for three weeks). Steve is on winter break and goes to Death Valley next week for a geology class, the whole class is 2 credits and involves 4 days of being gone camping in Death Valley and not really sure what else but he needs hiking boots and it sounds fun. Simon is as good as ever, he has gotten to spend a lot of time with his daddy and enjoys coming to see me during lunch so we can eat lunch together. He is currently going to daycare two times a week :( and a babysitter once a week. I hate it and it makes me very sad. Once every few days he will take his bottle, when he doesn't he cries all day (poor Steve) and then eats non-stop when I get home. I have been home an hour and a half and he is already eating for the third time, and he eats for a long time! He is such a mommy's boy and it breaks my heart to leave him every morning. We had a wonderful Christmas and maybe if I have the time and energy I will post about it later.

Just rmemeber it won't always have to be like that. Some day your hubby will be out of school, and you can move on from the student type living. Good luck! I would think it be just draining

So sad about the bottle. Poor Steve. I'm glad neither or my kids had a problem going to the bottle. But then Bryant was exclusively bottle, and Abigail, the transition was pretty easy. She didn't seem to mind at all. Even more reason for you to move here. I can handle a crying kid pretty well most days. Plus, no daycare. just play with cousins all day long. I hope things get better for you. Love you!

Glad you are still alive! I hope Simon adjusts to using a bottle for his breast milk too. I guess it will take some more time.
