(well she does have pants on, this is pre-bath) Even pre-bath she is cleaner than those first moments. It seems so long ago. She is a far cry from her chicken leg days and has moved on to full fledged hams. Not just any old hams but Christmas hams!

Blee is five months old today. Wow does time fly when you're having uhm fun? Lack of sleep? Lack of time? Feeding constantly? ding ding ding all of the above.

I love my chubby little peanut so much. The Gerber baby has nothing on her! Now to figure out a way to make money off my little cutie, pay for college! Or maybe a semester with how tuition is going. Even with us saving it is going to be so hard to pay for her school. These are the things we have to think about if we ever consider having another child. Especially since I really want to adopt a baby girl from India but that is very expensive.

365 Sketch - Day 5

The 365 Sketch group on Flickr is growing at a furious pace and I couldn't be happier to see so many people getting into it! I was already pretty motivated to draw daily but this group gives me that extra push I need on certain days. If you haven't joined because 365 just seems like too much for you I don't blame you. I also say that there is no pressure to actually live up to the group name. Whatever works. Lurking is fine by me too.

Speaking of not needing encouragement I have been manic/ hypo-manic these past few days. This is the second night in a row that I am not sleeping. I am supposed to go to bed at midnight but instead I filled half of a little legal pad with random sketches. I just couldn't stop until my hand started hurting. And here I am been done thirty minutes and I have yet to go to bed. I'm want to go to bed and I don't. Actually I don't want to go to bed but I know that I should. Despite my lack of sleep last night I did well today.

I swear I haven't had anything more than two cups of tea today and that is nothing for me. Also, that was this morning.

But we are meeting Jon's parents in New Haven Saturday afternoon and I really should try to bring myself back to earth. I have been having such a hard time communicating. I trip over my tongue and can't stay on topic to save my life. It sure beats being depressed but sometimes it can be quite scary. Especially the nervous ticks that come along with it. I get stuck in positions and still move constantly. It is hard to explain.

Stuck. Yeah. At the computer. I'm out of here for now.

Wish blee a happy almost half a year old birthday now! Thanks for stopping by.
