Yes. I'm still alive. Barely. Here's a bullet point outline of things going on around here:

  • Cute as a button.
  • Going on 3 weeks old Tuesday! Wow!
  • On her 2 week check up she had gained over a pound, weighing in at 8lbs. 5 oz. Good golly miss molly, she's putting on some weight.
  • She's having lots of troubles digesting her food. The doc switched up her formula {insert all you breastfeeding fanatics dropped jaws here} and it's helped a little, but we're still working on it. It's actually a whole new world for us cause Kingston didn't have any troubles, nor did he spit up...once. Saxyn, however, spits up constantly...projectile name it. Feedings can be an all out disaster sometimes. Makes me sad.
  • Was forgotten in the car yesterday. We all piled out to get some ice cream and suddenly heard Anne yell in front of everyone, "Wait! Where's the baby?!?!" So George did the walk of shame back to the car to get her and as he walked back up to the ice cream shop one of the bystanders intruded with, "You forget somethin'?" Yup. Sorry.
  • Kingston is becoming a little punk slowly but surely {we still love him to death though}.
  • Needs a slight haircut.
  • Loves on his baby sister so much it makes us smile.
  • Threw the word "mommy" out the window and has succumbed to called me "D!" Hm. Figuring out how to fix that one.
  • FINALLY advanced in swim lessons. Sheesh. He was held back in his last class 3 times, but just started his new class last Wednesday with George. It's been nice for them to get to do something together.
  • Loves to pray. All the time. He asks to pray probably about 3 or 4 times while we're eating. He has the whole "hold our hands, heads bowed" down pat.
  • Likes for me to kiss his "boo-boo's" and I'm happy to.
  • Love of my life.
  • His time home has come to an end {tear...sniff...}. He officially goes back to work tomorrow morning and then I'm on my own. I'm nervous, but mostly sad. His time home was a God-send, not just to have his help with the kids, but for our marriage. We've gotten so close and am so thankful for our 3 weeks together. I cried yesterday cause I don't want him to leave and I'll probably cry tonight.
  • Super-husband.
  • Getting used to being a mommy of two and a wife {still}.
  • Currently listening to Saxyn cry and watching Kingston out of the corner of my eye taking my dirty laundry from my closet to who knows where so I can accomplish a blog post.
  • Having the baby wasn't enough, I got a horrid pinch in my lower, left-hand side of my back about a week and half ago. Couldn't even walk. Can still barely walk. George carried me to the dr. last Friday and now anti-inflammatories are in order along with physical therapy twice a week for 6 weeks. Riiiight. And when do you think I have the time and energy for THAT with a newborn and toddler?
  • I'm getting excited for Spring and Summer weather and spending more time outside with my kids!
  • I'll be an aunt in about 4 weeks and can't wait to meet my niece Ireland!
Lots of things to find to complain about, but lots of blessings that trump the negatives and so much to look forward to in the next couple months!
