Patience


Four month old baby, lack of sleep, and 2:00 AM what does all this mean? This is what my Sunday night consisted of. Virginia had a full day. We went down to Gastonia to visit awhile with the Grandparents. She is definitely spoiled rotten. Mom brought down the swing and tried to get Virginia to be happy swinging. Virginia had other ideas. She just wanted to be held the whole time. I think I am to blame for that.

So we got home around 9:00 PM. Reiggin was enjoying playing his XBOX 360 game. We just crashed on the couch and tried to get ready for bed. Virginia didn't agree with my plans. She was highly upset and not wanting to sleep. She would drift off to sleep. Then as I am about to lay her down in the crib she would start screaming again. My frustration level was raising. I am sad to say, but I was starting to get mad with her. I know that sounds silly, but at night my patience just doesn't hold up. So from 11:00 PM to 2:00 AM we went back and forth from the couch to the crib. Finally around 2:00 AM, Virginia finally went to bed. So needless to say, my night was not that fun.

The next day went better. Virginia woke up about 11:00 AM. I know I shouldn't let her sleep that late. But I was just exhausted. We hung out on the couch eatting my bagels. Then played some Animal Crossing City Folks. Reiggin finally woke up.  I handed her off to him for awhile. I made a run to the shower and took a bath. Virginia decided to join me at the end and get clean also. She was making some of the cutiest faces after the bath. I just can't stay made at a face like that. Even if she does keep me up past 2:00 AM.

After getting ready we decided to make our way down to Rock Hill. It was my first time getting to see Susan's new house. Which by the way, was super nice. Also it was the first meeting of the cousins.  Sam and Virginia are going to be best buds. I was  super surprised to see how well Rufus and Nico have taken to having the baby around. Rufus really surprised me most.  He protected and took care of the babies so gently. He just followed Susan around.  When  Virginia and I went into the nursery to change her diaper. Rufus came right behind us and just layed in the floor peaceful watching us. It was just to cute. We visited for awhile and then made our way back up to Troutman. 

To my delight when we got home I saw a few snow flakes. I managed to get Virginia to lay down around midnight. Who knows maybe this will be a nice night. So I am off to dream and hope for a white snow covered morning.

Oh goodness, I don't think I can handle all of the cuteness in one post. What are you trying to do to me?!

I really love the picture of you and Susan with the girls, how sweet!
