A Night with Jaely

Not going to Traverse City today was probably one of the best decisions i have made. Jaely and i did not get a lot of sleep last night. Hopefully today we can catch up on our sleep. She did go 8 and a half hours between eating, but was up many many many times throughout the night with gas. I think this was the worse night we have had with her. We finally moved into the living room at 4:30, where she could be in her swing and i could sleep on the couch. Poor girl. It is going to be a sleepy birthday. I decided to let the house be messy today and take naps instead.

Another reason i am glad i did not venture up to Traverse is the main road (31) going up there is closed. It got completely washed out in the 10 inches of rain ludington received. That means when tj comes home tonight, he is going to have to go a round about way. Yuck! I just want him home!

Well, today i am 30. If you know me well, you know that i love my birthday. I normally get super excited in May and then am excited the whole week after my birthday. This year is different. I am not sure if it is because i am turning 30 or because my big birthday party vision that i had is not happening. I just feel kind of old and i am home alone all day with a person who isn't even 30 weeks old yet. She has no concept- although i was told that she got me a present. I might venture out to Target and spend a gift card i got for there. i might just stay home and sleep whenever i get the chance. I won't be celebrating too much with food because i am on weight watchers again and tj and i are celebrating on Saturday, so i want to save some of my bonus points. I think we are going to go shopping in holland and probably grab a bite to eat at a baby friendly place.

I am so thankful that i was able to fit a shower in between the crying last night or i would truly be miserable. The poor bug. I hope when she wakes up, her tummy feels better.

Happy Birthday!
I hope you can still find ways to enjoy your day fully, even after a rough night and without TJ.
Maybe just pretend tomorrow is your actual birthday and take full advantage then to celebrate the day.
