Sweet Picture and a Rant

The quote I added to the picture is brought to you by quite a bit of frustration on my part. I love, LOVE, love my sweet baby girl, but she has still not adjusted well to the time change. Sean and I have been abruptly awakened each morning since last Sunday between 5:00 and 5:15 a.m. It's KILLING me. Who would have thought the extra hour of sleep that I was getting in the morning was vital to my overall ability to function properly.

And Hattie is a mess. She is so tired and cranky and is fighting sleep like a wild banshee.

I love this sweet picture that I took of her, though. I love the fact that I was able to capture one of the few smiles that she has given in the last week or so.

I'll end with one of my favorite bible verses:

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30

We have the same suckiness going on over here. We just got them to stay in bed till the sun comes up by bribing them with candy each morning. Well, now the sun comes up an hour earlier!! And half the time they don't wait for it!!

At least the spring DST is wonderful.

It reminds me of a card my friend sent me when one of my babies was born. It said something like, "When it is the middle of the night and you are crying harder than the baby is, just remember...this is all you ever wanted."

Wisdom From the Pope

“The inalienable dignity of every human being and the rights which flow from that dignity - in the first place the right to life and the defense of life - are at the heart of the church's message." Pope John Paul ended his address, saying: "In spite of divisions among Christians, 'all those justified by faith through baptism are incorporated into Christ...brothers and sisters in the Lord.'" Pope John Paul 2
