Sleep is for the weak!

I am so happy that I have such a wonderful husband, who loves me more than himself. Last night was wretched! For some reason, Jack (who turned 3 months old yesterday!) would not sleep. Instead, he stayed up most of the night screaming and crying. We moved rooms several times last night and I fed him more than I ever have at night! Nothing seemed to help. I have no idea what was going on. He had been doing really well the past few nights. Sleeping from 9:30 to 5:30. It was great. Then last night I tried to get him back on his schedule: going to bed around 7:30. Then everything broke loose! SO I don't know what I am going to do. But Mark was great. He followed me around from room to room asking if there was anything he could do. I said sleep! Then at 8:00 am he took Jack into the living room and let me get some sleep for an hour or so. Unfortunately, I couldn't get to sleep! Oh well...that doesn't make him any less amazing! 

Mark has also been doing really well at work. He applied for the Men's and Kids lead a while back and didn't get it. Even though he had done that job before and is considered a manager now. But nevertheless, he was really gracious about it. He went back to his job working as hard as ever, if not harder. Mark is a prime example of doing whatever he does, for the Lord. Anyway, last night the person who did get the position, was telling the ASM (assistant store manager) of softlines, how much she appreciated Mark and how hard he works! I'm so glad that other people can see this too. Sometimes it is so hard on him and he really does deserve their appreciation! God has blessed us by letting us get by with only Mark's job. We are so thankful and Mark shows that through all he does at work! I am so proud of him!

We have come so far. It is so funny to think that we have been married for a year and a half (almost) and have a beautiful baby boy! It is also funny to think that 4 years ago Mark didn't think of me romantically at all. And everyone thought my crush would never amount to anything. But I prayed so hard for Mark and look where we are now! Disney and I knew it from the beginning!



  1. I like Mark so much. Sometimes just thinking about him makes me want to cry, and I don't even know why. Probably because I really love him. Of course, I never do cry, because I can't for some reason. Either I'm a heartless wench, or I need to drink more water or something....anyways.... *looks around*

  2. Me too!
    I don't think you are a heartless wench. Maybe you just aren't sensitive enough! =] Just kidding

  3. HAHA!
    I'm just not emotional. Which sometimes I am really grateful for, but other times it makes me feel like I'm not "one of the girls".
