4 Months!

Lot's to catch up on!  Let's start with last week.  I turned 30!!  I've never been to afraid of turning 30.  I'm not sure why, but I've been through a lot the past few years and it caused me to feel more "grown up" and that 30 is just a number.  All I can worry about is right now and whether I'm 30 or 29 who cares!

For my birthday I invited family out for sushi and drinks and boy did we have fun.  I had to do my first "pump and dump".  I'm not extremely proud of that, but you only turn 30 once right!?
Only problem was that my tolerance is completely gone so I totally paid the price for overindulging.  Oops!  Next exciting even was the birth of who I will call Richards BFF
My friend Beka and I got to enjoy being pregnant at the same time and we were excitedly awaiting the arrival of Matthew!  I am so excited to have a Mommy friend to go out and do cool things like shopping together like we did today!
In other news we have begun CIO.  For those of you who have no idea what that mean it is "cry it out".  He had been waking up so much at night and I was really struggling with being so over tired and around 4 months is really the time it is okay to begin this.  It is hard, I mean REALLY HARD.  I have an easier time with it at night, but during the day and naps it is difficult.  We've reduced from 3-4 wake ups down to 1-2 so it is worth it!!  I just turn up music or the TV to keep myself sane and know that he's safe, he's fed and this will help in the long run.  We are surviving.  My heart hurts, but it is for the best.

Tomorrow is officially 4 MONTHS!  His Ped check up is this Thursday so we can get all his updated stats.  I checked him at the last bfeeding support group and he was over 14 pounds!  I can't wait to see how tall he is.  Other things he is working on is rolling over and entertaining himself.  

The job search is still coming along.  I'm thinking it shouldn't be too long, but don't hold me too it!  I will leave you with an adorable Richard squared picture :)

Welcome to the 30s club! ;) It's pretty awesome. Glad you had such a great time celebrating! Well he is the cutest thing. Wow 4 months! Time flies -- I hate that our little Jace is already 2 months tomorrow. Sad! I will keep happy thoughts for you on the job front. Something just perfect for you will pop up, I just know it.

Hugs!!!
