Tossin' and Turnin'

Right now I'm listening to Hayden grunt and fight sleep in his bassinet. It's a sweet sound, but I also just want him to give in! Yesterday he had a horrible blow out which explained all the fussiness and screaming/crying for 2 days. He was amazing after that passed! Last night was a different story, but I cope. He was up from 12:30-2:30, ready to eat again at 4:50, 6:30, and 8:15. Daddy took him during the 7 AM hour before he had to leave for work so I could rest some. I didn't even know I had fallen asleep until David woke me to take him so he could get ready to leave. Ahh, those precious few minutes of sleep!

While I'm still worried about my paychecks being lower due to my maternity leave, I found out this morning that I can work my 3 teacher workdays next week and not lose my pay for those. Praise the Lord! That was another almost $300 I would have sacrificed and funds are very vital right now. Anyway, I'm just so thankful I can work those days and take baby boy with me. My school is very family-friendly!

We're also still desperately trying to make decisions for this fall. Please pray that we receive the answers we need. I'd love to have them now, but it seems like God likes to wait until I think we have no option and I'm breaking down. He always provides. I know that. We're just not sure how He'll provide for the questions we have right now!
