Just a quick post to say, “Hi! I’m still here!!!”
I’ve had so much on my mind and I think to myself, often, I need to blog about this…
Then someone cries, or whines, or poops…or cries and poops at the same time. It’s usually the baby, but not always…
Baby C is suffering from the dreaded 4 Month Wakeful Period that I swear didn’t exist. It doesn’t matter though, because I’ve decided to become a vampire. That way I never ACTUALLY need to sleep again. Do I have that right? Vampires don’t sleep, right? I never got into the whole Twilight thing so I’m a little rusty on my vampire trivia. If I’m being serious, I still totally adore Baby C and recognize this, too, is only a phase. Even if it’s shaving years off my life.
Baby C is 4 months old today and she’s doing fab. She’s laid back and relatively easy-going. Little A is doing great also. She can be such a sweet little girl. She can also be such a little hellion. I recently took her to her first movie…Madagascar 3. I kind of had an out-of-body experience sitting in the theater with her…her with her own popcorn, drink and skittles. I can’t believe my little A is old enough to go to the movies. We had a blast. I really enjoy being out alone with her, she’s totally different when she’s by herself and now that she’s almost 3-and-a-half, I can actually hold a pretty good conversation with her. She loves her little sister, no doubt, but one-on-one time with mom (or dad) is invaluable.
The whole “Hubs started his own company and doesn’t have an actual job right now” thing is going ok. Actually, it’s going fine. My “handling” of the whole thing is only going ok. At least once per day I have a minor panic attack. Each time I swear to myself tomorrow will be better. Each time, I fail. Bummer. It still remains to be seen if this whole thing will be a success, but having him home (not traveling for work) has been amazing. I love not having the stress of him having to fly out every few days. He’s working pretty much non-stop. The ideas just keep coming to him and he keeps acting on them. I can only hope I maintain my end of the bargain and remain supportive and not melt into a big pile of dramatics. I suppose I also need to get my business up and moving…because I have all this spare time and all.
