Sleep habits and OB/GYN overshare

Can anyone, please PLEASE explain to me, why, when I put Kenz down for bed at 9pm she is up at 6, BUT if she goes to bed at 7:30 or 8 she doesn't get up until 7:30 or 8? Isn't this the opposite of what should be happening? I'm so CONFUSED! We are struggling with afternoon naps running to late and not sure how to fix that, I really need her to have an afternoon nap for my sanity but we may have to get rid of them soon. :(

Asked my MIL to come over this am for 6 so I could go to work early (co-worker on vacation) and wouldn't have to wake Kenz up at 5 am and she was up at 6:15 anyway.... pointless! ::grrrr::  Oh and did I mention she was up at 3:44? Crying for like 2 seconds but was standing up and she has yet to figure out how to lay herself back down?

Rant over, kthanksbye!


On a side note I had my yearly "exam" today and as I was in my closet getting dressed, in my "nice" clothes, because I always feel like I have to dress up for these appointments I wondered to myself, why? The Dr. never even sees me with my clothes on, so I could wear pajama's and he would never know. ::sigh:: Then he tells me that I am under weight and need to gain 5 or 10 lbs and have lunch at McDonald's (TMI alert), McD's makes me lose more weight, not gain weight, if you know what I'm saying?
Here's the munchkin, blowing her nose:

She makes up for all the bad stuff w/ her cuteness!

Yard Sale Finds!!

Yard Sales are my new hobby. I am in search of good deals on baby clothes, toys and even clothes for me! I know some people have phobeas of second hand things but me? No! Why would you? You can save so much money by going to yard sales. Today alone I probably saved us well over $100 on baby clothes.

Here is what I got:

2 pairs of shoes
9 outfits (1 piece and 2 piece)
5 shirts
2 pairs of pants
4 skirts
2 dresses

So in the store:

2 pairs of shoes = $20
9 Outfits = $45 EASY (thats at $5 a piece)
5 shirts = $25
2 pairs of pants= $10
4 skirts= $25
2 dresses= $20

So thats (hang on I have to add it :-D).... $145. If you buy it all on sale. I spent, wait for it, wait for it, $15. HOW RIDICULOUS! Its all just like brand new, probably worn a handful of times. So yeah I love my yard sales!

I also picked up a few 3 shirts and 3 sweaters for myself for $2.50 more!


What's your favorite new hobby?
