I Think This One is Broken

I specifically requested a kid that would sleep.  But this one, Bivi, does not sleep much.  Even though she is seven months old, she still wakes up every 2 to 3 hours at night.  I was willing to deal with that type of situation for the first few months of her life, but this is getting old.  And that's a pretty good night.  She is obviously using all of this awake time to devise new ways to keep her daddy and me from sleeping.  On Tuesday night, she went down about 8:15, slept until 1:15 and then stayed awake until 4:00.  W-T-F???

As punishment, I made Bivi wear this hat and I took a bunch of pictures. The kid will pay...

30 Minute Meal My A$$!

I have made this fancy, Rachel Ray chili a half dozen times and not once have I managed to make it in under 45 minutes. Today was an all time record though as my "sous chef" is really incompetent and we managed to take a little over an hour. However, this stuff really is tasty, so I it's worth it and it makes gallons. But, I have to say, with all the crazy ingredients this is one expensive chili. I imagine I will make sure that we eat all of it. I foresee frito chili pie, chili enchiladas, chili dogs (imagine Bubba a la Forrest Gump here...)...

I haven't written in a while and I have lots to say, but Cayton is climbing all over me and I'm either going to freak out or I'm just going to post some pics and save my sermonizing for another time.

Here are the pics...

How a Three Year Old Greets Guests

Cayton felt that Josh needed a serious welcome home on his last trip to the US.
