Fast Learner? Not so much...

Sure wish I had figured out 2 months ago that sleep gowns will pull on from the feet up and that it's not necessary to force those stupid things over the baby's head, causing her to get angry.  That elastic band at the bottom seemed so difficult to maneuver over her head!

Paisley's reaction to figuring out a simpler way to put on our favorite sleep attire
Why did I not notice that the head hole is huge?  Makes a girl wonder if there are other things I'm missing that would make life easier... 

We went to see Saw 3D tonight which was awesome!  I can't believe how much I miss her when I'm away for 2 hours.  Halfway through the movie I felt the urgency to rush home to her, which I resisted because Aaron would make fun of me plus the movie was great.  (If you're into ridiculously bloody movies with terrible acting-  I happen to love it). 

Things are great around here.  Paisley is getting more and more fun every day and I fall deeper in love with her every second.  It's crazy how I never feel like there's enough time in the day to spend with her, even though I'm always with her.   Her smile melts my heart, her tears break my heart, and she has shown me how much love I'm capable of having for someone else.  Truly incredible.


  1. hmm... I've never thought of that! Thanks for the tip!

  2. I've never tried putting her gowns on that way. Good advice! I do hate pulling things over her head. I think it's so funny you like scary movies. I definitely don't. :)

  3. I never thought of that, either, so clearly I am ALSO not a fast learner:). Jackson doesn't mind them going over his head, though. Isn't it amazing the depth of your love for her? It's hard to put into words. While I also want to spend all my time with him, I'd also love a break sometimes. When I'm at work (2 days a week), I just want to get back to him, though:). It seems unnatural for him to be without me. I've yet to take a break away from him besides work. I wonder if that would make a difference? Well, I'm babbling:). Take care!

  4. I'm pretty sure Saw 3D is not for me, but it's great that you're able to get out with Aaron every now and then. Paisley is getting cuter by the day!

  5. loll!! you're just too funny!! :)
