Oh Hey

June huh. That was the last time we spoke. The only way I will keep up on the blog is if I eliminate something else from my life, methinks. Facebook seems to be where I post random pictures and things, but I don’t really ‘say’ anything about them. I might have to give that up and resolve to doing better with the blog because I have no idea what has happened in the past few months. Lots, I’m sure. And probably some good stories in there, and things that would be worth remembering and reflecting back on someday. Heavy sigh.

Last night was a horrible night, Lailah thought it would be good to wake up at 1:30am (I’d only just fallen asleep at 12:30) and didn’t fall back to sleep until sometime around 4:00, with just an hour left until my alarm went off. I’m used to 5-6 hours of sleep, but 2 is just not enough I guess. Needless to say this is probably not the best time for me to try and write, or remember. I can hardly keep my eyes open. But it’s been on my mind and I have a minute.

I can say though, since my last post, she has been sleeping better. This was the first day in a couple weeks that we have had that much trouble throughout the night. She has been pretty good about getting right back to sleep when she wakes up lately. Let’s hope this isn’t another spell of bad nights and just an anomaly. 

The weather is gearing up to turn cold, but thankfully it seems to be holding off a little bit more than usual. Hallelujah. It’s allowed for lots of outside time. We headed to the park and the woods by our house the other day. Came home with treasures and had a good time.

 Lailah recently made this most amazing portrait of me, and I smile everytime I see it. Her art has evolved a lot over the past couple of weeks.

And I have even had a chance to work on some art of my own. The Kulture Krash show is coming up on the 25th and this will be one of the pieces available. It's been nice to get the paintbrush moving again. 

That's about all I have for now, but hopefully I can work on some more updates in a bit. Hard as last night was, I sure love this little girl.
