first of all today is another snowy day here in hillsboro...but today is by far much worse then it has been for the past week, i dont know the real numbers but i think we have gotten at least 6 inches of snow and its still coming down like crazy!!!!

now for something im super proud of and excited about! i put Riley to bed in his crib (for the first time) and he woke up when i put him down but after about 5 mintues of talking to himself he fell fast asleep...IN HIS CRIB, WITHOUT ME HOLDING HIM!!! thank god, i can finally have some adult time while the baby is sleeping!!!!!!

check out the link to see the photos we had taken the week before christmas...they were expensive, but it was soooo nice to have them come to the house instead of having to pack everything up and go to a studio!!

yay for craigslist!! i just finished buying our stock of gdiapers meds and larges! we now will have enough diaps to last us until Riley is out of diapers!!! i am so excited that i no longer need to shop for diapers out of necesity, now any diapes i buy will be simply because im indulging/splurging on special extras!!!!! im washing the vanilla diaps that i dyed and will post pictures of them as soon as they are washed so the final color is as faded as its going to get!!

im not really sure why Dan (my husband) keeps me around, i hate cleaning, i hate doing laundry and even though i like cooking sometimes im pretty much too lazy to cook these days...BUT this weekend between dan and i we got all the dishes done and all the dishes done

on another note i have been experimenting with making natural dye's to dye Rileys white soon as i have them all (3 of them) done and all washed up (so they are the color they will be) i will post pictures. i have one dyed in coffee (which dan and i have shirts from hawaii done like this, and if the diap turns out like our shirts it will look great!), one dyed in grass and spinach, and the other i am hoping to either do in blackberries (if i can find some) or bjlueberries...we will see how it works!

who NEEDS sleep??

certinaly not least that is what Riley seems to think. yesterday we attended ASL playgroup for the first time, and we had a wonderful time. after group Riley and I went to West Linn tio visit a little girl I used to work with and her mom. the whole day was great, i was soooo thankful to get out of the house, but being that we were out all day meant that when Riley napped I couldnt snuggle up with him and nap as well, actually yesterday Riley didnt nap nearly as much as he normally does (and he was still happy). so because of those 2 things i was really hoping that he would sleep for at least 4 hours straight last night, but NO this stinker decided he needed to eat every 1.5 to 2 hours last needless to say IM TIRED!!! we are not leaving our house today and im going to sleep for at least a quarter of the day!
