Who needs Sleep??

It has been a few days since I posted anything. I'm not even sure if anyone out there is reading this blog. Please feel free to leave a comment..... say hello. I'm new to this whole blogging thing. I've been hoping to learn to make the page "prettier", but I've seriously had NO time at all.  If anyone else can give me some tips on blogging or making my site more appealing, please send me a message.

It's funny how many new moms think that they will have all this time on their hands when they are on maternity leave and how perfect their babies are going to come out. I was under that crazy assumption the first time, but this time I had an idea of what I was getting myself into.  We have been dealing with a baby that can sleep all day and party all night. After reading countless books and searching online for suggestions and even talking to his paediatrician, he still is not responding to any of the suggestions.

We have tried everything to keep him awake. We have striped him down to his diaper, taken cold clothes to his body, put him under the sun, made noises, banged pots, put him on his face, gently shaken him and he will still sleep. ARGH!!! He's even fallen asleep during his bath. SERIOUSLY???

He's loving the warm bath until I poured
cold water on him..he.he..
Does anyone have any suggestions??? I'm at a loss. I will continue to try keeping him up during the day even though he is dead to the world. Maybe he's a vampire. I mean the kid sucks milk as if he was. Did I mention that he had his 2 month appointment yesterday and he's 14 lbs 13 oz. Yes, you heard right 
14 POUNDS 13 OZ  He's in the 95 percentile. He's wearing 6 month clothing. This is NOT something that I want to brag about, but since he's a boy, I guess it's o.k. It took his sister 4 months to get to the same weight. No wonder I feel drained... literally.

So, what has happened since I last blogged. Well, Santa came to our town.. as in the Santa Claus parade.  Claire and daddy went with her cousins and froze their tooshies, but came home SO SO happy. Priceless

Claire with cousins finally seeing SANTA!!!

Santa also dropped by our house and dropped off one of his elves for the holidays. I think all families with young kids should look into this wonderful Christmas tradition. It will take me too long to explain but in a nutshell, it's a great way to keep your kids well behaved "nice" vs "naughty" during the Christmas season. Check it out

"Princess P" our family elf

Claire had her final ballet class on Monday which means we get to see her performance. We are so proud of her as she danced very well. If you would like to check it out here's the link

With the lack of sleep I've had since my last post, I've barely been able to squeeze in a workout. I did try another new workout video called TurboFire on Saturday, while Claire and Daddy were at the Santa Claus parade. I will write about it another time. On Sunday, I was sore all over. I could barely move my legs. I think it was a combination of the Insanity workouts leading up to the TurboFire. I had been crippled by home workout videos.. really??? I actually convinced my hubby to try Insanity with me one night and he even told me that he felt it working. I will continue working away at the videos to  build up my core for Tough Mudder.

I was able to finally crawl back on the dreadmill today. I only have an hour to play with so I decided to to the Nike 10K training again. Another great workout. My legs were burning but felt great. This time I covered 2.31 miles in the 30 mins. Stuck with 4.5 mph training and did the intervals at 5.2mph, resting at 4.5 mph. So now we're all caught up. Happy Hump day !!!
