Sleep Machine Review

     As you (yes, you!) might know from my copious-but-never-annoying Facebook updates, I got an amazing beast of a juicer for my 27th birthday! Well, technically my real birthday is Friday, but my hub is a gift-lover and couldn't wait. Love him. A lot.

     Anyhoo-- Back from my daydream about le stud. What you might not know, is that one other gifty came in the mail this week as part of my birthday extravaganza!

     Up til now we had been using a massive box fan (which I found in a closet when I married Forrest) to create white noise. It broke last week, leaving us severely handicapped. We had to make due with a teeny fan that barely made enough noise to cover a snore, let alone lull Augie to sleep. This little guy came in the mail yesterday, and I am in heaven...or waterfall, depending on the setting. It is amazing. Slightly pricey, but who can put a dollar amount on the ability to stay up making noise and watching TV in a small house without your baby waking up in the next room, right? Some of the settings will never get used, but I really enjoy "brown noise". It is the white noise setting, with the "richness" button pushed twice. It is a lovely, low hum. In reality, it is almost exactly like "waterfall".

Absolutely delicious.

Almost Spring

//Week 47//
The weather is getting more mild and we are going to plant the big garden this week. We already have a few herbs in pots, since they can be taken in when there is a freeze.

In other news, you started walking this week! Yay, Augie!!

Grumpy Lunch

We were having a grumpy moment today when you woke up from your afternoon nap, so Mama decided to feed you a snack outside. It is such a lovely day, why waste the sunshine, right?
//Week 46//

Soon your grumps faded and you ate happily. All you needed was some vitamin D!

Pre-Mardi Gras

//Week 45//

Blood pudding, white pudding, and scrambled egg feast. Finally Papa has someone to eat nasty things with. You both scarfed it down with a smile.

Silly Sleeper

//Week 44//

Lately you have been learning how to put yourself to sleep. I almost always come in to cover you up to find you in this position; tucked little knees and hands under your head. You also always throw everything-- blankets, toys, animals-- out of your crib in protest before you pass out. Silly, silly.
