This seems to happen more and more the older I get. I used to be able to go back to sleep in a few seconds, now sometimes not at all.
Does anyone else have this disease that seems to afflict mothers much more than fathers?
Does anyone else have husbands who can sleep through little ones requests for drinks or hugs in the middle of the night? Yeah, I thought so.
The good news is I have already done two loads of laundry and got quite a bit of packing down for our trip to the mountains this weekend.
All of my siblings (there are 5 of us) will be together for the first time in quite a while. Some cousins are also coming with their families so it should be a really fun family weekend.
Hopefully, I can get a little nap on the way up the mountain so I don't fall asleep to early this evening and miss out on some of the fun.
On another note, several of you have emailed me asking how Paige's school is going. Thank you so much for your kind words and concern. I cannot begin to tell you how much they mean to me.
Paige is doing great. She really likes school. After six weeks we can already see a dramatic difference in her language skills. School has also seemed to boost her self confidence enough that she will try and talk more even if we are having a hard time understanding her. It really has been remarkable and such a wonderful answer to prayer.
Her class has been working on telling people your name this week. We were all cracking up last night because she kept going around to all of us doing this...
Paige: Hi, My name Paige.
Me: Hi, My name is mommy.
Paige: Hi, my name Paige
Samantha: My name is Samantha
This went on and on for quite a long time. They must have been practicing saying the other persons name because she always repeated it after you said it.
We were all thrilled because she had never said her name before, she was barely making more than one or two word sentences at the beginning of August so this was quite a milestone for us.
So, it a nutshell, we are very pleased with her progress.
Well, that's it. Have a great Friday and enjoy your weekend.
