What happens when (just two months after meeting) a Baptist preacher's son and small-town pastor's daughter surprisingly discover they've committed the ultimate faux pas? Now it's a journey of finding out what it is to love a little baby surprise and what to do about this new husband.

Happy Holidays

We had a good holiday sharing it with our new families.  We were unbelievably exhausted because Jr. had not been sleeping good.  We were just beat to the bone, and up till about 4 on Christmas eve.  I was actually starting to feel negative towards everything, even Jr.  It scared me, and so I decided to do something about it.  I've got Jr. on a more structured schedule--sleep, eat, play--all day.  He stays on this routine until bedtime.  I put him down at 7:30 or 8pm.  He'll sleep for 3 hrs., then I feed him and put him right back down.  If he cries, we just let him cry.  It's hard to let him cry, especially when it is going for about 30 minutes but once he's done he'll sleep about 8 hours.  Last night he slept for 9 hours.  I wanted to jump up and dance I was so proud of him!  Actually, I just laid in bed and enjoyed waking up to a quiet house.  Happy holidays, my favorite gift is having a happy sleeping baby!  SANITY has entered the building.
