Steps in a Direction

To be honest I think I've been pretty lazy when it come to defining a path. I really have been some what content in the hope that the work I've been putting in would get noticed and in some way I'd be rewarded for this work. Instead any reward has been blocked or overlooked at some point. I guess I dont stand out enough from the crowd of fellow opportunity seekers. Blend back into the crowd old boy, the opportunity with the position I am currently in is limited. At least as a direct path and with the life changes now made the priority I am going to have to reach harder than ever. She requires it, and it the best thing for her. So the route I am laying out has got to be direct and clear cut. I've been thinking about it a large amount today since going back to school full time is out of the question right now I'm going to have to go the certification route. ITIL is looking like a decent place to start. A foundations certification will at least get the momentum going and the start up cost doesn't look to be much. The job listings are asking for it so I think that along with a project management coarse or two should kick me off int he right direction. I honestly dont think the ITIL cert would take very much extra education because it is a base process I use daily, so only the book terms and step location would need to be memorized. So I say it today here and now this is where I'm starting. This is the first step in a stagnant water removal process and it must be done! Amazon ITIL study books here I come... 

-Real life is becoming an interesting thing, should of got onto the coaster sooner.

She doesn't want to nap

Guess I can't complain, she sleep at least 8 hours through the night. But when I'm home or even just for Mel, she starts getting grumpy because she's tired. She will take a nap for about five to ten but that's it. Anyone have any great tips? Melissa's really looking for some, me too... ;-) is she worth it? Not a doubt, she's worth everything...

Well she has had some "solid" foods for the first time 2 weeks ago. Her first real food (minus that rice cereal) was Avocado. She gets about a table spoon around lunch time with her milk still being the primary source of food. Figured since were having a shortage of mommy milk the solids shouldn't be much worse for her than the formula. (If not 1000 times better). Mommy feels bad about not being able to give her the "best stuff on earth" but she did everything she could to keep it going.. So Mega props to her. She still get a little and I'm sure Riley loves every drop. Its fun watching her try the solids, that first bite as you see to the left is always the same. "Whats this?, Do I like it?" Then she chows down. So far to date its been Rice cereal, Avocado, Carrots, Peas, and Sweet Potatoes. Those being the ones in the picture.   Shes growing so fast and I only think its going to get faster. She will be 20 lbs in no time. My Daily Riley curls are not going to be enough. Soon I'm going to actually have to start working out.
A little laughing video as a special treat.
