It's random, lovely, full of misspelled words and terrible punctuation. It's about me, Erin, my family and friends, in real life. There's sugar but no sugar coating.

4 Naps, 3 nights, and 72 hours
It's a miracle! Tuesday morning I woke up and decided we had to do some changing around here. I'm only about 7 weeks away from the arrival of the new baby and Noah just isn't ready. So, I decided Tuesday was the day to get rid of his "mimi" (AKA paci). I cut the tip off and told him it was broken. He tried it several times, throwing it to the ground between each attempt. After crying for an hour he was finally tired enough to go to sleep without it. That was the last time he saw it. I can tell he wants it sometimes but he's doing pretty good. My little boy is growing up. He even sleeps part of the night in his toddler bed. I'm trading a little snuggling time for the loss of the mimi. This baby will be here before I know it.
He's a Grad student. He makes pots. He likes hunting and hanging out with his boys. You can visit his blog at www.checkoutmyblogatmyblog.blogspot.com (or click the picture).
