What to say....??

So I really only joined this because Heather belongs here and well she'll probaly be the only person to view this blog, so I guess I should just write to her..hehe.. as if we don't text message eachother all day anyway!

Current frustrations:

Never having any money. I mean how could I have any money when the shot for Logan's RSV is 325, however when they went to charge me for it it went up to 360 and some odd change. Yeah I was extremely irritated in the jump in the price too but apparently they have to send stuff to give him in case of an allergic reaction. Which I will be responsible for paying for the rest of his shots because SSI disability will only cover him from when born to 11/1 (which will pick up our out of pockets for the 230,000 in hospital bills we got). After 11/1 we make too much money to qualify. And I didn't send in the Medicaid form because we moved to Mercer co IL and the form was for Johnston Co Ia, but the SSI people said to send that form in but now they will only cover from 9/1 to current, so those 4 days at the end of August I will have to pay. Not to mention the 1200 from my delivery & care that I have to pay. And the 1000 in medical bills leading up to that. Babies are expensive!!

But so worth every penny.

Current Happiness:

At 2am Logan woke up to eat. He previously ate at 6pm or around then at Chip's Mom's house. So that's a long time, he obviously off schedule (which drives me insane). Anyway, Chip got up and got the bottle & I picked him up from his crib. I changed him into some pajamas and changed his diaper and then when Chip came back and fed him. When he was finished he started the hour long-i-am-going-to-cry-no-matter-where-you-put-me dance. Chip couldn't get him happy anywhere, he tried the swing, the bouncy chair, the crib on his back, the crib on his tummy, on his tummy on chips chest in bed. Nothing was working. So I took him from chip and layed him beside me, and he stopped. It was really that instantaneous. He's never really done that before so I was a little surprised. He finnally fell asleep next to me and then I put him back in his crib. This morning when I got up I went and got him. He doesn't quite coo yet but every once in a while he'll sigh loudly content like.. and he did that when I picked up him. It was adorable. I hated leaving him last night at Chip's mom's and then again today to go to work. I just want to go home. But then when I get home he's sleeping anyways. I really can't wait to switch to 1st shift.

Also I made and decorated sugar cookies with Jordan on Saturday. That blasted Rachel Ray makes it look so easy. Its not that easy. The dough kept sticking to the roller, I just wanted to throw it across the room. Then after that I am not used to my over and I got the cookies pretty crispy. Jordan had fun decorating them. They are cute cookies. Jordan is also learning to read and I was going through his flash cards with him, he has the most trouble with words ending in st. Like Last, Cast, Stilt.. But other words he gets right away. Its exciting that he's getting so big. But frustrating that he still throws fits and is almost 6 years old (the fault of my brother and jordan's mom). Poor kid. We are getting him a Nintendo DS for christmas, I am so excited!!!!!!

Looking forward to:

Janine coming home for Christmas & meeting Logan. Christmas! This friday I will have internet at home again! Thursday to find out whether or not we'll get our bonus's and If I will get one. (please cross all fingers and toes here. Logan starting to stay awake more, Smile more, & coo. Tune in for more to come!

Something went really wrong with the first batch of cookies. Chip thought it was hilarious. Me? Not so much. I still blame Rachel Ray.

This is the finished result.. They are super cute and look really yummy!

Jordan and the cookie mess!
