OK, as promised, the Peacock that came by to say hi. . . I think the neighbor got him back since we have not heard anything from him for a day or so now. . .

Peacocks all around. . .

OK, work on the house is moving forward as they started to frame the first floor today. Things got interrupted as the dog caught a peacock. . . . . yes a peacock. Don't know how but she didn't hurt it. she let it go and it hung out watching the guys build the house for a while then wandered off. I will post some pics tonight after I get them off the camera.

We called the cops and it seems a neighbor has a few and would you know one is missing. Now I don't mind another bird in the yard but the damn things make the most God awful noise. Been hearing it for a few days now. At least the neighbor now knows where to start looking for this thing. I guess it lives a few streets over as we have not heard it before now. . .

Well, just another day in a small town I guess. . ..

been a MONTH!

Well, Jack has made it to a month old (plus a few days. . .) and he is doing well. He has started to sleep pretty good as he is only getting up once a night to eat at this point. He is doing great and starting to pick up his head more and more to look around and see what is going on not to mention working them legs pushing himself up when you hold him. I do have some new photos I have to post, I will try to get to that tonight if I can. He still loves to be held when he is up so if he is awake mom or I have to be around or he gets upset he is not getting the attention due him = )

Let the distruction begin. . .

Well the hole is dug for the most part. . . A bit bigger than I thought. they took out the peach tree and the burning bushes that I thought were safe for now. So can you say quick trip to Home Depot. . . I save a few bits of peach tree to try to root, and I pulled the bush Aisling got for some reason or other from the dirt mound and will have to plant that tonight.

Don't know why but I have the urge to take a picture of the hole. . . . at least things are starting to go forward. . .

We have a hole!

Well, they are finally digging to put on the addition to the house. Nana is thrilled that we can see some progress. They took out a few bushes and a tree that I thought were safe but that is the way it goes I guess.

As for the hole, it is a bit damp but I think we will be OK since we planned for water in the design. I am hoping that it will have as much room in reality as it does in my head. I wanted to use the basement for a shop and gym but we will see if there is enough room for that when the cement is dry. . .

As for the rest, I think it is time for a bit of cleaning up and tossing out of stuff. I need to get the shed clean so I can fix the floor and the walls. It is old and rotting in a few spots that I have to fix.

Got Jack's room finished off over the weekend. Now all that is left is trimming the closet doors to fit over the new flooring and we are done with that. I hope we have a good weekend weather wise coming up so I can finish that off. Still running on a lack of sleep, but that is what you get with a baby. Can't believe that Jack will be a month old on Friday!

Three Weeks!!

Well we have made it to Jack's 3 week birthday!! He is doing well and up to 7 lbs as of yesterday. He is still not sure if he likes the idea of sleeping through the night yet. He did ok last night, but Sunday night he was up every 20 min or so. Can you say sleep deprivation? Can't wait till he sleeps a bit more!

Things are starting to settle down a bit at home. We are moving forward with the apartment for my Mom. They were poking around yesterday measuring for the new septic system so they can quote that. Once we get those quotes going we are all set.

Still doing the Karate. I must say it is interesting trying to do a new style of karate while half asleep but it is going well so far. I am up to a solid green stripe and I hope to get my green belt by the end of the summer with a bit of luck. A lot of that depends on my being awake enough to learn the new stuff = )

T is doing well if very tired. We will see how that goes when the kids get out of school in a few weeks. For now Jack is keeping us both just looking at the next day or two and trying to stay awake. . . .

Still Going

Well, almost done with the first week back at work. . . . Jack is doing his job and getting us up a few times a night. I have to admit that Teri is getting up more than me but I do need to stay awake to drive to work in the morning which is about an hour to an hour and a half of very dull highway. . .

Jack is doing great, but he has learned to turn away from the camera so no new pictures yet. I will have to work on that with him this weekend. A few folks have asked for new photos, we are working on it = )

His big sisters are doing well with him. They have been able to sleep through his nightly FEED ME alerts so they are fine. They both love him to pieces. He is going to get spoiled fast if we don't watch them. . . (and me)
