Sleeping Beauties

Daddy and Jack

Grandma Hatch and Jack

Jack makes sleeping look fun. He has me hooked, too.

Tummy Time

It's about time I posted some recent pictures of Baby Jack. Here he is during tummy time...which doesn't last long since he can now roll over on his back. And I even caught him smiling (as much of a smile as I can get since he was on his tummy...this is not his favorite thing to do.)

He is doing great: sleeping well, eating well (just look at those chunky arms and cheeks), and progressing well.
I can't wait to see what he'll do next. :)

Ready to Roll.

That's right...Jack rolled over today.

For the very first time.
Wow, my son is getting so big!!

Something I Need to Work On.

"Let us realize that the privilege to work is a gift, that power to work is a blessing, that love of work is success."
-David O. McKay

I need a major attitude adjustment right now...becuase I don't feel this way. I can't wait for the day when I don't cringe just thinking about cleaning my apartment or dread getting up in the morning to go to work.

Before Bedtime.

  • I'm grateful for my Jack-Jack: We had some singing time tonight before he want to bed. He smiled and cooed through the whole thing. It made me feel like a rock star.
  • I'm grateful for my husband: He has been house sitting for the past two days while Jack and I stayed at home. I missed him.
  • I'm grateful for my job: My pay is more commission based now, which makes me really nervous. But at least I have a way of supporting my family.
  • I'm grateful for my Heavenly Father: Lately, before going to bed I've been trying to think of things I am grateful for...I usually think of five things but I end up naming about 20. I can't believe how much my life has been truly blessed.

Has it really been a month since I've blogged?
I wish that wasn't so, but life has been absolutely nuts...I don't even have time to grocery shop (just ask Bart, he will confirm it).
But ever since I've been back to work my days have consisted of the following:
  1. Wake up
  2. Wake Jack up to eat (he would sleep for 14 hours if I'd let him...sorry son, you've gotta eat.)
  3. Get ready for work
  4. Go to work
  5. Pick up Jack from my mother or sister's house
  6. Go home
  7. Figure out what's for dinner
  8. Eat
  9. Feed Jack
  10. Put Jack to bed

And then, after all of that is said and done, it's 9:00 at night and I'm pooped. How in the world am I supposed to go grocery shopping, pay bills, clean the apartment, prepare a lesson, and have me-time with only one hour in my day left.

All you working moms out there, how do you do it??

PLEASE, tell me your secret...I beg you.
