Seven Hours of Pure Heaven

I would like to announce that, for the past two nights, Rocket has slept all the way through the night. (Cue massive choir of angels. HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH!) I had forgotten how incredible seven straight hours sleep can be. Shit. Forget incredible. It is down right fucking MAGICAL! I don’t know if it’s this cycle we have him on, or the nighttime tubbies…

… but whatever it is, it is working. And he is eating like a champion. Today he ate for 30 minutes, straight. I couldn’t believe it! He must be going through some sort of growth spurt. He is getting SO BIG!! He is already wearing 3 – 6 month clothing.

Remember his kick ass bear suit? Yeah. No chance I am getting him into that now. The suit would be more likely to sit up and give me the finger.

As much as I want it to stop, I have to admit that I love seeing him reach new milestones. Although it is really all him, I get a sense of accomplishment. Like I am really doing alright at this whole parenting thing. Parent. That word still blows my mind. I’m not a parent. Shit. I’m just a kid. For Pete sakes, I still laugh at farts!

Still, nothing is more satisfying than walking into the room and having your child smile and coo at you in recognition. Melts my heart EVERY TIME! I just can’t get enough.

And the discoveries! Like his foot! Fascinating to this kid.

You can just see in his face that he is trying to take it all in. So focused at alert. It’s amazing to watch him grow and learn.

Look at me ramblin’ on like the proud parent that I am. But can you blame me? Rocket kicks some serious ass!

Spransy Quote of the Day

Ok so not really so much a quote…but still worthy of the title.

Yesterday, I received this email from my sister, Jenn (aka Jennifer Jennifer Crotch Crotch). Have I mentioned how much I love my family?!

So yesterday I was making breakfast and Dieter was reading the news headlines…he said “10 killed in a Turkish Avalanche”. Now, I know this shouldn’t be funny, but I started giggling. I said “that sounds like a sexual term.” So what did we do…??? We made it one! We also had falafels yesterday in its honor!!!
Turkish Avalanche

Take a look at the name!
I love you all.
Jenn

Spread this like wild fire!

Everyday Life – Oh For The LOVE of All That Is Midget!

Nothing it better than knowing that my blog was found by these four little words:

“three nippled ginger midget”

Amen.

8250

Pronunciation: ’ā-tē • ’tü • ’fif-tē

8.jpg Days until Rocket’s 2 month follow up. Time to see if he is a healthy, growing boy!

2.jpg Total BLOW OUTS that Rocket has had today. They were so nasty I almost took a photo to post. Almost. Really it was just for the entertainment and grossing out of LilSass :).

5.jpg Months until Jeremy’s birthday. He’s going to be 35! Better start planning the festivities!!

0.jpg Amount of time I can continue putting off the purchase of Slurpee goodness. I can wait NO MORE!

A Little of Column A, Little of Column B

  • This was the busiest work day I have had in ages. Add a baby to the mix and you could say I am feeling quite frazzled!
  • Remember Fraggle Rock? Wasn’t that show awesome?!
  • Rocket HATES tummy time. Just look. And for the record, he pulled that little gesture on his own. He is truly my kid.
  • Speaking of Rocket, check out his new cap! He’s worried about how he will be able to handle the hoards of adoring women.
  • Sometimes when I am changing Ollie’s diaper, I make up songs to the tune of Little Bunny Foo Foo. For example:
    Little stinky doo doo
    You just let a poo poo
    Now there’s fecal matter
    All over your little butt!
  • I have a gift card to Barnes and Noble, and I can’t decide what book/books I should purchase. Any suggestions?
