Superbowl Sadness

Monday, February 3, 2014
Well, our Broncos were beat by a landslide, and I couldn't be more upset about the outcome of the game. I spent a good portion of the Superbowl feeling sorry for my husband and our mile high boys. These past three years with Justin has caused my love for football to increase immensely. The loss hurt, and because (a lot of ) Seattle fans are so nasty about winning, I deleted my Facebook. I think it's going to be hard to walk around the Seattle area for a few weeks. Part of me wishes that Justin and I weren't taking this so seriously, after all, football is still just a game. On a high note, Syracuse is having a great season, and we have been rooting on our Orange men!

On a much higher note, tonight was the first time I have ever put Ava bug in her crib. I had originally planned to start off with putting her in the crib during nap time, but our day just did not allow for that to occur. This evening after we showered, I sat in the glider, and nursed my baby until she fell asleep. I waited for a few more minutes (just to make sure she was KO) and then I laid her in there. She didn't wake, and I was relieved by that. I managed to go downstairs and chit chat with Justin for a bit (the baby monitor was attached to my ear) and figure out what the rest of our week was going to look like. She must have been in there a little under an hour when she woke up crying. We knew waiting this long was going to be difficult for the babe, and for us, but I never thought my heart would hurt so badly from doing something as normal as placing my daughter in a crib. Tonight was a definite bust, and Ava is currently in slumber land beside me. I plan on trying everyday this week, starting with naps before bedtime. It's more important for me to have Bug feel safe and comfortable, than for her to actually be out of our bed.

Today I finally found frames large enough to complete my first picture collage. I'm pretty pleased with the way it came out, considering I have rearranged this wall almost a dozen times. Justin signed in for permissive TDY today, and it felt weird. It's going to be very weird when he finally goes back to work. We haven't had a normal schedule since we left Georgia almost two months ago. I know it'll be different, but good to get back on track with our home life. My grandmother is coming to visit us the week of Valentine's day, and I'm pretty excited for that. She has never met Ava, and I'm seriously considering doing "generation photos" with my grandma, mom, sister, myself, and baby love. I really want to have that type of photo in a collage in my home.


Well that's all for now. I have to get dinner going, and I've got a ton of homework to do! I'm so glad this is the last week of this writing class. As much as I love to write, it's not as fun when it's not recreational. I hope everyone enjoyed their day. Happy Monday all!
