I'm a bad blogger

I know, I know...all I've been doing lately is posting pictures of Griffin. I swore I wouldn't do that. I just haven't had time for much else. I'm swamped at work - too many grants to event count. Plus, I'm in the midst of redesigning our agency web site. I'm finally getting over my cold and I wake up this morning to a sick baby...again. Apparently, the cold he got 3 weeks that he gave me 2 weeks ago is back...and he's got it. So in between work, trying to maintain a somewhat clean home, cooking dinners, and attempting to mail our birth announcements, I have zero time to do anything but post pictures. I promise that it will soon cease and I will be back to writing "real" posts. In the meantime, here's another couple of pictures...

Reasons To Be Cranky...

1) I'm still fighting this cold. Sneezing. Stuffy nose. Headache. Plus I've become a mouth-breather, which I hate...
2) I've got a TON of grants to write that all are due at about the same time.
3) I had a flat tire today.
4) I had to drive the truck to work this morning because of the flat tire.
5) The World Series is totally boring because I don't care which team wins.
6) My house is a disaster.
7) Despite the fact that Griffin is sleeping much better during the night (just one late-night feeding!), I can't sleep because of my stupid cold. Arrrgh!
8) I took a bunch of great pictures last weekend, but am having trouble transferring them to the computer. Our computer sucks.

12 Weeks

Technically, this picture was taken when Griffin was 10 weeks old, but he doesn't look that different. This was from his first day at day care. Obviously, he's made the transition just fine...

At Least He Likes to Share

Griffin gave me his cold. The cough. The sore throat. The stuffy nose. The only difference is that he found a way to smile and giggle through it all. Not me...I'm grumpy.

The Best Intentions

I've been wanting to post something more than the usual complaints about fatigue, migraines, and the stress of being back at work. However, I've been too tired, had too many headaches, and have been too swamped with work to sit down and write...

Some of the topics I've wanted to write about include:

  • Catching the "writing bug" I had so long ago, but put aside when I was getting close to having Griffin (Patrick and I had a long discussion about this a couple of weeks ago and he's urging me to get back to writing)
  • Comparing the differences (both physically and emotionally) between taking Griffin on walks all those weeks ago in the middle of summer and now, with the season changing. {I know this probably sounds stupid/strange, but it really does feel like a different experience now - he's different, I'm different, and it honestly makes me a bit sad}.
  • How I have no idea how /if I will ever live in an uncluttered house ever again - I can barely keep up with washing bottles and sanitizing the counters.

I want to post about these things...I really do. One of these days I'll find some time.

The First of Many

Griffin has his first cold. He woke up this morning with lots of coughing and sneezing. I worry about him because both Patrick and I have asthma and are really susceptible to bronchitis and pneumonia. He's at day care today because, despite his symptoms, he had no fever and was a very happy and silly baby this morning.

I'm just chalking this up to another new experience in parenthood.
