The baby is getting older. She is 2 1/2 monthes now. Life is starting to come back towards normal or what passes for normal arround here. Abby is a wonderful baby. If Mark was an easy baby, Abby is twice as good. We really lucked out.
However, she has a bit of colic. She screams her head off from 6:30 - 8:30 every night. I can hear the wave of sobs now.
Boo-hoo she cries only 2 hours. My baby used to cry from noon to midnight.
But 2 hours every night is enough to make you desparate.

Otherwise, life is OK. I am on a 1200 calorie diet ( DR approved). I have lost about 10 lbs in the last month or so. I have at least 40 more to go. As long as I am steadily lossing, I am happy. Even though I would love for it to just melt off 5 lb a day. Wouldn't we all...

I have finished canning my applesauce, so the harvesting and storing and canning should be done. One of these days I want to play America's fastest growing game Name-That-Canned-Item with you all.

I have been on the internet maybe 3 or 4 times now since before Abby was born. I miss all the stuff I used to do. I am so itchy to get creative with web designing again. It is so hard to find the time to invest in going on-line and taking a big chunk of time for myself.

We are toying with getting high speed internet because we are so tired of dial-up, but the only provider in this area is Charter and that would be $50 a month plus a modemn.

Ooo, I almost forgot to tell you. Gabriel got a new job. He is now a safety director for a large construction company in Green Bay. He loves it. He is no longer a laborer and that makes him so happy. Right now he is working on a trial period until the end of the year. At that time both sides will re-evaluate the job and if they want to keep him on Gabriel will bw salaried.

I know you all want pictures. I will try my best the next time I get on-line.

Miss you all.

Wow, definitely sounds like you've been busy.
Glad to know that Abby is easy. Nate used to cry for 2 hours each night too, used to start about 9pm till about 11pm. Then he would stop & go down for the night. Luckily ours only lasted a couple weeks.
Yes, would love to see pics when you get a chance!

WTG on the weight loss. As you probably know - losing weight over a longer period is actually more effective and you most likely will keep that weight off then.
It's great that your dh got a new job! And yeah-I wanna see pics!

Congrats on the weight loss and on hubby's new job. I work as a Project Assistant on a major construction project in Portland and all of the Safety guys from the various trades we work with are so nice and they love what they do.
