I think the worst part of having a baby is the sleep deprivation...I thought three months was the magic point of sleeping through the night...but the thing is, I can't always get to sleep when he does. So I've decided not to dwell on it anymore. I'll get whatever sleep I can and deal with it.

There is certainly a lot of buzz surrounding Sarah Palin...a lot of people in New York are up in arms about her, saying that no matter what she does, others think she walks on water. I do find her charismatic and interesting despite her craziness (banning books, etc.). I can't get too worked up about her pro-lifeness since I am that odd contradiction, a pro-lifer who votes pro-choice (figuring it's other women's business what they do). I would like to have a Democratic president in office, but I just don't think Obama will win.

and I can't see McCain winning, but I thought the same about Gore and then Kerry...

take him to bed with you. you will sleep so much longer. they usually don't voluntarily sleep through, either. once they double their birthweight, they CAN sleep thru but you almost always have to do sleep training. I'm sorry.

lol :) he does do 6 & 6 1/2 hr stretches, but they start around 8 or 9 pm - often too early for me to go to sleep.

for some reason it's harder for me to sleep in the same bed w/ him now that he's bigger. i do it sometimes, though.

by sleeping thru, do you mean 6 hrs or 8 hrs? i would love 8 hrs in a row...

we did 1 night of sleep training a while back and since then he usually sleeps 6 hrs straight as long as he's well fed...but 8 hrs are my dream...

I heard someone else today say the same thing about thinking Obama probably won't win. I think he has a better shot at winning than Kerry did. I sure hope he does.

Oh, and speaking of, I have to make a plug for FactCheck.org. I wish more people knew about it.

Ah politics. I cannot believe how rabid people are over this particular presidential election. They are scary, scary I tell you. (Insert dramatic organ music here)

Well, if the idea is you vote for whom you want to win, not whom you think will win. And if I'm reading these southerly wins right, McCain is going in to this campaign as the walking wounded. And I'm not seeing Palin as his lifebuoy.

But then, I'm Canadian, and while we tend to follow American politics as closely as--if not more closely than--our own, I'm not sure I have the right to broadcast my opinion on the matter.

As for taking pics of baby, I was the 'official' (in that I occupied and amused myself) photographer at my little nephew's christening, and I got maybe two pictures out of twenty where he is in focus. Maybe.

And, naturally, those two photos where he is in focus, no one else is.
