A dear friend of ours made Caleigh this beautiful hat. I think it is absolutely wonderful & it really brightened our day! Adrien is an artist in many ways. So Talented! You can check out some of her designs at http://apmDesign.supermarkethq.com.

Today is Tuesday, and for the first time in probably 7 months, Caleigh fell asleep laying on my chest. She has never been comfortable with her belly on anything. I was so excited and savored every moment of it. I guess I had just given up on the idea of Caleigh snuggling this way. So to all the parents out there, don't take for granted the snuggling of your sweet baby to your chest. It's something you will miss when it's gone and love with all your heart when it returns. I'm just beaming.......

Medically we are still at the wait and see stage. Caleigh has been dishing out the poopie diapers 3-6 times a day, but her g-button output is still to much to start feeding her. We're still working on weaning off the methadone. Close but not off it yet.

Yesterday I went home and trudged around the empty house. Empty and quiet. I was supposed to go home and sleep.......yeah right. After watching all the recorded episodes of John & Kate + 8 on our DVR, doing a few loads of laundry, & playing with the highly neglected dogs. I decided that I would try to take a bubble bath. Then I got the crazy idea to make myself a homemade facial. After scrounging through the cabinets all I came up with was honey. So I put a mask of honey on, lit some candles, poured three year old bubble bath (does that stuff expire) into the hot water. Jumped in and the hot bath felt amazing......except for the honey dripping down my face! It seems that the hot steam from the bath melted the honey off my face. Rinsed off the honey, tried to relax. I tried, but my mind just couldn't shut off enough to enjoy the moment. Finally gave up and got ready for bed. I slept a whole 11 hrs and didn't wake up once. Maybe the bath did the trick.......
