I am not prepared...

For teething! Joshua has a little bit of acid relux now and he screams because of it! It breaks my heart to see my baby in pain :( I am not prepared for when he starts teething... I think it will be harder on me than it will be on him! Plus, on top of this acid reflux he is going through a growth spurt, if he's not eating, or sleeping, he is SCREAMING

My baby took a 3 hour nap this morning! And then a 1/2 hour nap this afternoon. It is now 5 pm and he has been sleping for about 20 minutes... I am just hoping this doesn't mean he will be up all night.

Speaking of night...

Last night Joshua was being fussy around 10:45 or so, usually when he falls asleep while I am feeding him. So I just put him in his crib because I was frustrated he wouldn't go to sleep! I went downstairs for about 10 minutes, when I went back up he was sound asleep! He fell asleep all by himself. But this isn't the remarkable part of our night. He didn't wake up until 6:30 AM! Yes, you heard me, 6:30! That is 7 1/2 hours that by 10 week old baby slept. I was so proud of him!

this is what joshua has looked like all day:

We took advantage of that and went on a walk. He was very happy the whole time! I was so glad because me and Deuce needed to get out of the house for a while :) So we walked up to the mailbox to check the mail. Of course the only thing we had, was yet MORE junk mail. We have lived here not even 2 months and ALL we get is Junk Mail. This is where our mailbox is. A couple blocks away, with everyone else in our neighborhoods! Our neighborhood is called Oasis Ranch... ha yeah right!
