It's not that I've abandoned this blog, I'm just a really awful blogger. With a wake up call between 3 and 3:30 and a curtain call, if I'm lucky, by 9pm (not to mention some nursing wake ups in between because of teething), I just don't have the time to devote here like I used to. After work, it's nonstop Michael time mixed with housework, which is then multiplied times three once I get the twins home from school. After dinner, I'm cleaning and getting Michael fed and in bed before throwing myself down on a pillow and, frankly, if I have a spare half hour, I'd rather be running (which is also falling by the wayside right now). I'll get back on track; I'm just busy trying to survive right now.
There's a lot going on. The kids are all healthy, thank God. Michael is now 20 weeks old (where is the time going!). He's rolling and can roll back to front; he's almost got it front to back. He knows 3 signs (mom, dad, milk) and Peter & I both are sure we heard the first mumblings of "mamamamam" which, since the kids said "dada" first, I'm going to take! :) This weekend, I'll be pulling his 9 month clothes down and boxing up the 6 month stuff because we aren't expecting flooding anytime soon (this kid is, for sure, his father's son... TALL!) Maya suddenly blossomed into a teenager or, at least, her attitude did. God, give me strength. I love this girl but boy is she a version of me! Help us! Bobby has been struggling in school because his aide wasn't in; we're trying to get that squared away and prayers for the entire situation would be so greatly appreciated.
Okay, Michael's up from his nap! Back to work!
