Ok I admit it I have officially been reunited with the Harry Potter extravaganza. For a long time now I have kinda ventured away from it, mostly because I got hooked more on Nicholas Sparks and other romance related authors but the latest HP movie did it to me again. I actually never finished reading the fifth book. So, after seeing the movie I just had to know what happens. Apparently my Mom bought me and my brother the sixth book a while back and I forgot about it. There is certainly a lot more teenage love going on in this one that's for sure. My brother has already finished the sixth book and the seventh so it's been hard to not let him tell me what happens in the end, even though he has given several hints. I'm at the part of the book where you can tell Ron is getting ready to dump Lavender and really wants to be with Hermione. I'm about to burst waiting for Ron and Hermione to just admit they like eachother! It's about to drive me insane!

A Whole New Look

Well as you can see I changed the look of the blog. The name "Little House on the Prairie" was just not describing my life right now and "Memoirs of a Manic Mom" sounded so much better. Also, the polkadot background was making me a little bit too hyper.

Jayden is officially 3 weeks old today and he's getting so much bigger! He's already grown out of one of his sleepers and he's working on another one. We took him to the zoo yesterday. The minute we get there he decides he's hungry and to make matters worse he was sleepy(in Jayden terms that means "fussy"). So, we had to spend about 30 minutes sitting on the tailgate of our SUV feeding him and getting him comfortable before we went in because it was too sunny out to carry him into the zoo in our arms. He has to be completely calm and almost asleep before he will ride happily in his car seat or else he will scream his little head off. Jayden decides to be funny and spit up most of what he ate all over me and his father. During this whole cherade the loyal geese that flock the parking lot are getting just a little bit too close for comfort to our vehicle. Anyone that knows us would have probably loved to have had a picture of this glorious moment to laugh about later on.

Hello fellow bloggers out there in blog world. So I thought I would give this blog thing a try. Have mercy on me will ya? I thought my first post could basically be about who I am and what I'm made of. I just had a baby on July 3rd; ironically my husband's birthday was the day after. My son's name is Jayden who weighed in at 6lbs 13 oz but he is getting so much bigger! I'm sure every mom says this about their children but he is just so gosh darn pretty!! I'll get around to posting a picture of him soon. He still has his morning's and night's mixed up but it helps having such great parents of my own that can help me out. I plan on being a WAHM(work at home mom), but we'll just have to see how it goes. Today, Jayden's picture was in our town's local paper announcing his birth which was pretty exciting.

I'm just praying for the day that Jayden sleeps the whole night. Is there any new mom's out there who's babies have their morning's and night's mixed up too? Or maybe there is some experienced mom's out there who have advice on how to get newborn's to sleep the whole night. I for one am thoroughly exhausted!!
