Still No Sleep

I had to post this cute picture since lately I've had to put Mason on my back in the Ergo when we grocery shop.  That kid is out of control in the grocery stores!!
My CPAP still isn't helping me.  I take it off not long after falling asleep.  I can usually remember doing it but can't figure out what to do about it.

I have 2 different masks and I don't like either one better than the other.  I go back in 2 weeks for a follow-up with my doctor and I'm praying he has some ideas or suggestions on what to do.  
I find myself so disappointed--I was really excited to finally sleep and feel refreshed during the day.  

So I'll just keep feeling (and often looking) like this:

With dreams of looking like this:

A Special Time in Our House!

Almost 5 years to the day after having her top teeth taken, Natalie has her grown up teeth (or as she calls them, her Mommy Teeth) popping through!  We have waited for this day for 5 years!!!!
It's funny...she never talked funny without them, but now that they are coming in she has a little lisp!  We love it!!

Apple Picking!!

 The kids and I went apple picking on Tuesday!  It was the perfect weather--sunny and warm but with a cool breeze!
We got a quite a few apples and hope to make sauce to can this week!

This Week

*This week we started off with an awesome Sunday School Fall Picnic---it was a great time of fellowship with friends that we've made over the past few years!
*Grammy came into town to stay the week.  She is starting a new temp job about 2.5 hours away so we'll be seeing more of her over the next few months!
*We had a rainy, cold day at our homeschool co-op.  I just wanted to come home and crawl into bed.
*On Thursday the kids took the day off from school and went with Grammy to visit some animal shelters and have lunch out.  Mason and I enjoyed our time at home!
This weekend we're going to pick apples and hopefully make some goodies with them!  Then we're hoping to have friends over for lunch on Sunday, and maybe a nap somewhere in there!

I've had my cpap for over a week and I don't think it's successful...yet.  I had a hard time with the first mask, switched it for a different one, and now I've gone back to the first one.  I switch them up some but use that one the most.
It's so hard to get used to sleeping with.  I don't keep it on long enough during the night--I'm taking it off in my sleep :(
Mason hasn't been sleeping well so that doesn't help.  
Last night I took some Melatonin to help me fall asleep--apparently it was a high dose and I won't be taking that again any time soon!  It knocked me out!!  I was glad that Grammy was here to get up with the kids this morning since I couldn't get out of bed!  
I'm still praying that I'll see a change soon!!
