motivation?

I’ve been on a roller coaster of emotions lately. We found a house we would like to buy. If we could get it for $40K less than asking price and get a good amount for our place we would do it. We (Orlund and I in the thought process) have gone back and forth 100 times. That does a lot to a person emotionally. I’m drained. We have decided to NOT go for it. We are going to wait a year. One more year squished in here, but where we have some financial freedom. We will save, pay down the house while doing some minor upgrades. Then re-evaluate next year.

Jacob has hit the 3 month mark. The age when infants become babies (in my eyes at least). They smile regularly, giggle and colic subsides. Jacob changed over night it seemed. Then he did again. He used to have bad gas and was colic.He pooped once every 4 days. He slept from 9pm to 5am without waking. Then usually slept after feeding until 7/8am. He also took at least one nap without me holding him. Now he knows how to pass gas, and the colic is mostly gone. He poops once a day (he has a hard time leading up to it. and overflows his diaper everyday). He goes to bed at 11pm, wakes to feed at 3am, 5am, 7am, and gets up sometime before 9am. He wont nap during the day unless on me, and even then he fights sleep like you wouldn’t believe.

Happy dimple boy

With all the changes in regard to Jacob and the emotional exhaustion my house has fallen to pieces. As I was nursing Jacob (he’s now napping on my chest) I decided to read through a few of my old posts… I read the ones about nesting…wish I had that gusto now! I will admit it did inspire me to get this house back in shape. It helps me feel so much better when the house is clean and I feel like I’ve at least accomplished something during the day.

Well now Jacob is screaming, the kids are fighting. Guess computer time is over. Wish me luck ~ I need it!

  1. Oh, he’s so cute. House stuff can really get the emotions going. I am so glad we are settled in to this one for a while. Hopefully your decision to wait one more year will benefit you big time in the end. And I think the whole nesting phase must be built in because after baby, nothing is going to get done well for a loooong time. Babies are so much work!
