New layout

I love reading other people's blogs because you get such great ideas. I have often tried to change my background to make it pretty, but usually run into trouble. I always seem to lose my sidebar stuff, so I have to redo my whole page.
My cousin had a link to a blog by someone named Matiekay that has several different layouts and VERY easy instructions about installation. I was very happy to find it.
I also found the link to another blog called Blogs2Books where you can convert you blog to a form where you can have it printed into a magazine or book. Since this is my version of a personal journal, I am very excited about doing this.
Another thing that I should share with you is Google Reader. Do you spend us much time as I do looking at blogs everyday? My friends Stacey, had a link to this posted in her blog. You subsribe to all of the blogs you like to read in that one place and it tells you if there is a new post when you log in. It is great and has saved me a lot of time (something I don't have a lot of)
On a more personal note, we are starting to see little babysteps in Gavin starting to sleep somewhere other than the swing or my arms. Yesterday he slept for about 30 minutes in h is crib and then last night he slept for a decent amount of time in the pack and play next to our bed. At the beginning of the week, we had about given up. One night, he cried/fussed for 2 1/2 hours straight. However, yesterday he figured out how to suck his thumb, so now he can soothe himself a little better. Who ever thought I would be thankful for thumb-sucking. Hopefully, we will continue to see progress!!
