It’s so hard to believe that this little guy is already two months old.
No matter how tough things get. I look at him and it all seems alright. <3
Rent is coming up due again. As are car payments. If it wasn’t for his grandmother paying our rent for two months and a few other bills for us we’d probably be out of a place to live… Honestly we need another place to live. Our bedroom (granted we still aren’t using it because it is extremely too hot to stay in with an infant) is still uninhabitable. The ceiling has mold starting to grow where the water heater busted the pipe and soaked it. Not to mention the parts of it that literally just fell to the floor.
We would move, but my husband just found a new job and hasn’t gotten paid yet. I had an interview the other day and should know something by this evening one way or the other. Only problem is we are behind/barely scraping so before we can move we have so much to catch up it’s ridiculous. I have to pay $121 just for my freaking car tag and I’ve got about 30 cents to my name aside from the gas money my mother in law gave us…
I feel so bad being in this situation. It wouldn’t be as pressing if we didn’t have our son, but with him here I’m not sure what to do or how we are going to manage…
I’m guessing it’s the same as an interview. I haven’t had a job interview in forever seeing as I was at my last job for 3.5 years… Also if you’re wondering why I have it or am going back to work if/when I find something… Hubby lost his job and some other crap went down with something else so…
Oh let’s also not forget that thanks to a busted water heater pipe last week our bedroom is currently uninhabitable, it’s a good thing we were set up in the living room for the summer to keep it cooler….
But seriously the ceiling is falling down over a good portion of the room because we didn’t know it had been literally gushing water through the early morning hours.. I lost a box of old photos cos they were in the closet that got totally soaked.. There is insulation all over, as well as ceiling tile plaster.. Dunno when the landlord is going to fix it.. He said it’d be this week supposedly to let it dry out, but yeah..
I just pray that we get through al, of this somehow… I don’t know how much more I can take emotionally considering just a month ago I was recovering from nearly dying after having my child….. Yeah I’m ready to crawl into a hole…

I haven’t had a job interview in forever seeing as I was at my last job for 3.5 years… Also if you’re wondering why I have it or am going back to work if/when I find something… Hubby lost his job and some other crap went down with something else so basically he’s going to have a really hard time finding something… I really do hate the idea of I going back to work, especially since Alex is only 6.5 weeks old, but if we are going to keep a home and other bills paid I have to. Right now we might have $1 to our names, I’m waiting on his former job to get us a copy of something saying x day was his last so that we can be approved for food stamps and Medicaid. His grandmother has paid our rent since middle of May. It’s a struggle it really is.. I don’t want to have to leave Alex, but I’m literally going to have to. We are facing no other options right now…
Hi! My name is Alex. Guess what I just did!? I went 10 hours without a bottle all on my own. I even slept for about 8-9 of it. Mommy is hoping that this is the start of me sleeping through the night. I went 6 hours the two nights before so maybe it is…
In all seriousness though I was quite surprised that my little man slept so long through the night, especially once his diaper got a little wet since he hates that. It doesn’t seem like it but he will be 6 weeks old tomorrow (Monday) and I’m guessing it’s a good thing he’s getting to that through the night point.

There are two versions of Carry On My Wayward Son (one has a thunderstorm in the background) and then there is one called Mary’s Lullaby. Oh my gah I love it. At first I was like oh this is pretty, but then… But then the line came and I knew. It is Mary singing it to Dean. I highly suggest listening to it. The singer my friend listed is Elizabeth Jean Smart. But yes, my friend rocks and Alex seems to approve of his lullabies…

And I need to mash them up and bag them up and freeze them before they go bad…
This little guy has my heart. I am so glad that he is here. I’m also glad that I’m finally on the mend properly and can care for him as I’ve been wanting to these last two weeks.
Thank you :)

CONGRATUALTIONS! I'm so happy for you :)
Thank you. :) it’s been a rough week but we are just glad he is here.
After a long weekend of failed induction little Alex has graced our world with his presence. 5-19-14. 8 lbs 11 oz. 21 inches long. And he has a head full of dark hair.
They were going to induce Monday night/Tuesday morning but since my bp was high again we got sent for monitoring. They’re not sending me home but instead we will be getting the starting process for the induction. Come on Alex, momma and daddy are ready to meet you!
