September Currently

I can't believe it is already September!  So happy that it is finally getting cooler here in Texas (and by that I mean it isn't reaching 100 every day).  We can actually go outside and walk now as long as it's before 9.

It's five AM and my husband just left for work so what I really want to do is go back to sleep.  I'm thankful that he left quickly and quietly and didn't wake the baby up though because that doesn't always happen.  So I am just sitting in bed typing this listening to white noise through her monitor.  White noise is a miracle worker.  Helps our Gracie sleep allllll night long, really, 12-13 hours.  I hated listening to it at first but now I don't notice. 
Speaking of Gracie, she turned 10 months yesterday.  She had been taking a few steps here and there for a few weeks, but yesterday she was really walking. So exciting!
I've actually gotten back into posting on my personal blog this week and have been feeling motivated to do that.  It's so much easier to think of family related ideas since I am home this year.  Click the button below to find it.
As for my goals, I need to do a better job cleaning the house.  Maybe a schedule of what to do each day would help me.  I don't know.  I feel like no matter how many times I clean the floors, they look the same (dirty!) so what's the point sometimes?  I also want to spend less on unnecessary things because we are getting Gracie's pictures done soon, are going to be making her playroom, her birthday is coming, and then Christmas.  And I also wish I could relax more instead of always feeling stressed.  So on that note, I think I will lie here a little while longer.


  1. Hi Jessica
    I hate having to do the housework and hate having to do it especially after coming home from work. That's my worst nightmare. However, I think you might just have a winning idea about coming up with a schedule of what to do each day. I think that might actually work for you. And yes, I get the "What's the point?" feeling. And Jessica you only have this one life so do relax a little, because if you just stop to enjoy the'll treasure it more. But then, easier said than done right?

  2. It is so much fun when your little one starts walking. My daughter also started walking at 10 months and has been on the go since! I agree with you on the spending less and trying to relax! I need to work on both those. :) Have a great school year!

  3. Oh my gosh, look how big your baby has gotten! I think I have missed a post or two on your blog and I will have to go back and catch up with this last few months! So fun when they start walking- that's about the time my daughter started climbing out of her crib!
    Teachers Are Terrific!

  4. Aw, so exciting about your baby walking! I started at a new school this year, and waaaay more teachers have children there than at my old school. I've been so impressed by how they juggle their home and school life. I seriously can't imagine being with kids all day at school and then coming home to one or more! Good for you!

    Years That Ask Questions

  5. Your daughter is beautiful! Yeah for the walking too! :) I hate cleaning. I have an 8 year old son who can make a room dirty in what seems like less than a minute. It never fails, I clean the shower and he comes in covered in mud which gets the shower dirty again. It's very frustrating!! I usually just say I'm going to clean it once a week and it can be dirty for the rest of the week. :)
