3am ramblings

So, it's three am and I can't sleep. Didn't Matchbox 20 have a song about that? Will woke up about 1:20 and was hungry and I have been up ever since, even though he went back to sleep.

We found out on Sunday that Will is cutting his first tooth. Apparently he bit down on Dale (why Dale's finger was in Will's mouth I don't know) and he felt something sharp. Sure enough, one of his front teeth are pushing through the gums. I sure hope this doesn't take too long because people say that babies can be very fussy during this teething time. Why can't they just get all their teeth at once and be done with it? And why don't babies like teething rings. Will makes the funniest face when you give him the ice cold teething ring. He looks at me like "you want me to do WHAT with that ice cold piece of junk! Are you kidding?" Oh well.

Will also tried solid food for the first time on Friday. It was interesting. He was so hungry he tried to eat the spoon and got oatmeal all over his face. I tried sweet potatoes last night and he got those every where too. I got some awsome pictures of baby food on the baby's face. Don't you just love babies?

I have a delimma. I work at North Kansas City Hospital as a tech three nights a week. Every couple of weeks there is an extra shift on Thursday night and I am tempted to sign up. However, I don't want to work four nights in a row. I remember when I worked days and worked an extra shift. It wasn't even worth it, as far as I remember. It was too much for not enough extra money. Plus, they take so many taxes out that I don't know if it's worth it. We are trying to go to Kentucky in May and the extra money would be nice, but is it worth my sanity? I just don't know. Also, Will would have to stay with his grandparents Thursday night while I was at work because Matt has to get up for work at 4:30 am Friday morning. That isn't a big deal, but I don't want to have to take care of Will Friday during the day and then go to work Friday night. It would totally suck.

The worst part about this whole thing is that I have changed my mind several times and am stressing myself out over it. It shouldn't be this big of a deal. To work or not to work, that is the question.

A bit about me

My husband and one of my best friends both have a blog and I enjoy reading them, so I thought maybe I would try the blog thing. I don't know if I will ever give the address to anyone, but it should be fun. I also need to start writing in my journal, and I thought that since I can't get motivated to do that, maybe this would be a good option.

I just want to apologize in advance to anyone reading this because my life is boring. I am in school, taking pre-requisits for nursing school and praying that I get into nursing school. I have a five month old son, William, who is the cutest boy in the world. Will has had a cold for about a week and has been listliss and cranky, not his normal laughing self. He woke up today and was smiling and laughing. It made me so happy to know he is getting better. However, his apetite has returned and he was so hungry today. I don't think the formula will be able to keep up with him, so today I introduced him to baby oatmeal and pears (two different foods). It was very funny to see him trying to figure out the spoon. He thinks it's a toy to chew on, and he got cereal all over his face. I got some cute pictures. He wasn't sure about the pears, but he ate them.

Yesterday our family of three went to see the movie Meet the Robinsons. It was very cute and one of the better Disney movies in a while (for more information on that see my husband's blog at rmatthewware.blogspot.com). Will really did well. He slept through the first 30 minutes or so, then woke up and was hungry, then he watched the rest of the movie and had a good time. He's just so perfect!

So, a little about me is really all about my son, Will. Isn't my life sad?
