This month has been a bit long because I have been getting less sleep. We have stopped swaddling Anthony, cold turkey. He had been making it his mission to escape from his swaddler, and had been becoming more and more successful at doing so. One day, I hid the swaddler from myself so I couldn't rely on it to get him to sleep anymore. It was a rough first couple of days, but he is now doing much better. He still wakes up for his binki throughout the night, but he can now sleep 5+ hours unswaddled! Now, we just need to get him to sleep through the night!
My mother in law came up for Easter. I like my mother in law... I really do. I'm not sure how she feels about me. I think because me and Ian had such a short engagement (a little over a month), and moved 6 hours away right after we got married, she always looked at me as someone who stole her son. But, I think she is more and more used to the idea of us being married (she better be! we are going on 2 years!) . We get along. I hear mother in law horror stories, and I am so glad she is normal. Hahaha. She is very respectful of our decisions on how to raise Anthony, she even asked if we were going to teach him about the Easter bunny (the answer? no way.) so she knows whether or not to do that or not.
Anyway, we decided to make Easter dinner and I was very very nervous because when I told her I wanted to make ham in the crock pot she looked at me like I had 22 heads! But, it turned out DELICIOUS!! She actually described it as "heavenly". hahaha. I was very happy about that.
In other news, we just became members of a new church and I am so excited about it. They are a good, Bible based church and that is very difficult to find in New England. It is such a liberal part of the country desperate for Biblical truth. Anyway, it is a small church, somewhere we can really get involved and form lasting relationships. The pastor and his wife are around our age, and they have a 2 years old son. Her and I have gotten together with the kids a few times, and she is just lovely. And real. We have a lot in common and I am so glad to have found another Christian mommy to hang out with!
Anyway, that is about all! My husband and I have put our "get out of debt" plan in to action. It should take us 18 months. We just need to stay focused!
