Remember Me?

Remember me? I am Morgan, the former blogger...ha! I have so many things I want to blog about, but I thought I would stop right here to document that our nights of good, solid rest have come to a screeching halt! That's right, baby boy Watson is at it again.

Actually, he has been very sick with a sinus infection. Normal people, including myself, sleep when sick...but not Eli. On the contrary, it has been around the clock all-nighters since last week.

Thursday I was up twice with him...I think. Actually, I can't remember because this past week has been one EXTREMELY long day if you get my drift! Friday night was spent sleeping on the couch. I did wake up twice completely drenched from a leaking sippy cup. Darn things!

Saturday night Eli was up every, and I am not exaggerating, EVERY 25 minutes!! It was horrid!

Despite being sick himself, Eric took baby duty last night so I could rest. It was wonderful!!

I used to wonder why people had only one I know!! They had bad ones the first go-a-round. I've always heard people sa, " if (fill in name) had been my first, it would have been my last."

Well, I got my last first. What? What I mean is, I may be done. If I do decide to venture out for another one, it will be a very, very long time. And if by chance I bring up the "b" (baby) or "p" pregnancy words to you within the next half decade, please do me a favor and slap me...or at least remind me that I managed to birth the worlds WORST sleeper the first go-a-round. It really is a GREAT form of birth control, and if you don't believe me I'll loan him to you for the night. Trust me, you'll be back on the pill in no time flat! Ha!

The truth is, any time Eli doesn't sleep I get anxious and border line depressed. I am walking a thin line right now and could use your prayers. The support from my husband, family and friends is the only thing that keeps be semi-sane during our sleepless spells. We serve a Mighty God, and during the good times I've filled my heart with his word to encourage me in times like this. I am pulling from that pool of scripture today. Please pray for consistent rest in our home and for a healthy little boy.

It may be a while before I have enough energy to update you, but please know I am so thankful for your support!

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
