I've neglected the blog of late, and I can tell you why: my baby does not sleep. I half expected it, I've always been an insomniac, my brothers and I would stay up in our beds long past being tucked in at night. My husband, on the other hand, is a champion sleeper. I'm amazed at the amount of sleep he can rack up in a night, and then take a nap. I had hoped that the two sides would even out in our son, but it just isn't the case. So life in general has been a sleep-deprived haze, and I'm coming to terms with it as something that I'll just have to deal with until he's old enough to at least entertain himself long enough to fall asleep at night.
We've also had so much to get done around the house. Re-arranging, baby-proofing, re-decorating. It's all been stressful but satisfying. The house is just beginning to become what I envisioned six years ago when we decided to buy it, and of course, we are hoping to move within the next couple of years. We want Ferris to have a yard to play in, and there just isn't a satisfying park nearby. At least I'll get to enjoy the results while we wait.
So Ferris had his first Halloween! It was adorable. We had planned on taking him trick-or-treating, but his mood just didn't allow. We got some great pictures, though...
