Dealing with sleep deprivation, just in case my many, many staunch followers are wondering where I am! (Heavy sarcasm. . . ) Not baby's fault- he sleeps at least 5-6 hours at a time, but once he wakes up at 3 or 4 am, and then nods back to sleep, I am wide awake for the next few hours. Too tired to get up to do anything useful, but too wired to turn off my brain for much needed zzzz's. Starting to catch up with me. Next time I'll post about our fantastic OBX vacation! Meanwhile, baby has 3 teeth, and working on 3 more. He's crawling, scooting, rolling, and even nose-diving (off the couch, bed, wherever. But don't worry, we always catch him. . . so far!) No solids, yet, though, which is fine with me! Having a blast with him! My other 5 are all taking a second seat for a while so I can enjoy my last (?) baby!
I am an LDS mother to six, wife to one! I hate to cook, stink at cleaning and keeping house. I love to read. I'm just learning to ride horses- love it! I am fascinated by human behavior- what drives us to do what we do, and make the choices that we do. I am a student, again, going to wv state u. I have a masters in counseling, a bachelors in zoology, and now I want to go to med school. I love dogs, but am allergic to most. Standard poodles are my fav!
I love my kids, but they are difficult. My middle child has lissencephaly- a neurological disorder (mental retardation, seizures). My oldest and my fourth child both have bipolar and anxiety disorders. Life is never dull, but can get overwhelming. I believe in God and Jesus Christ, and this gives me courage to endure it all in the hopes of something more joyful and relaxing in the eternities!
