I hope we sleep better tonight

What an amazing blood moon last night, right?! I tried to get a nice picture of it, but you know how cameras are. They make things seem so much further away. 

Thanks to the super moon, Sweet Pea had a horrible time sleeping last night. She was restless all night, and woke several times asking to get up. At about 4am, I got woken up to a very cold, tiny finger, in my EAR!! I was less than thrilled. From then on, she woke up every 30 minutes, asking to get up, until it was actually time to get up. Luckily, I've been feeling better in the morning since going off my medication. 

Today we went to the park. Sweet Pea is really only interested in swinging. She doesn't really like to run around on the play structures at all. In fact, she's a little scared of them. 

We took a walk in the big field, to take some pictures. Sweet Pea wasn't really into it, until she found a pile of dirt. She loves her dirt.


I was becoming a bit overwhelmed with my hair. It was down to my waist, and pretty curly. But it was falling out by the handfuls and leaving bald spots. I finally got tired of it, and decided it was time for a change. SO, Mister shaved m head for me. I was a little uncomfortable with it at first, but I really like it now and I'm thinking I'll keep it for a while. 

Sweet Pea wasn't too sure about it at first. We did it while she was napping, and played a little trick on her when she got up. For a while, she would rub my head and say "it's yucky!" But now she rubs it and says "I yike it mommy". 

My hair has defined me my entire life. It was pretty liberating to just say goodbye to it.

Dirty Thirty

This past weekend, I turned 30. I had such a hard time with it. I actually cried the night before. 30 always seemed so old. Like, after 30, you were done. You couldn't have anymore kids. I think that's where a lot of my stress was coming from. I felt like I wasn't allowed to have anymore babies once I turned 30....now I realize how silly that is, and I feel better about it. 

We kept the celebrating pretty low key. I wasn't going to do anything, but my parents forced me to lol Friday, Mister, Sweet Pea and I went out to dinner with my mom. I had my first adult beverage in.....I don't know how long. Way before Sweet Pea was here. It was fun, but I'm good for a while. Then Saturday we went out with my dad and step-mom to an old family favorite. 

Whenever I would ask Sweet Pea if she knew my birthday was coming up, she would respond with "I eat cake?" She knows what's up.

So far, 30 isn't so bad. Here's to turning 30 a couple more times ;)
