Yes, it has been quite awhile since I last updated and many things have been happening around here. The fall always seems to be busy, but for me, this year probably more so than any other, since I've had children. I have enjoyed so many days just being a mom. I have really enjoyed watching my baby boy in his mellow ways take in this new world around him, I have laughed (and cried) at the many antics my rambunctious, middle child seems to do on almost a daily basis, and I have truly enjoyed watching my daughter turn in to such a young and helpful little lady. I also took on a new part time teaching job in September. I have enjoyed being back in the classroom and teaching, but I especially like the set up this year where I can truly do both jobs I love, teaching in the classroom & being at home with my kids. :) From Thanksgiving through New Year, our family tends to be on the move and traveling quite a bit. This last trip we loaded up the van and maxed it out to capcity. Lots of fun insued! This first week of the new year I've been just trying to catch up on some much needed rest. lol... To finish out this week I will be celebrating my birthday. Yay! We'll actually be doing Christmas with Ryan's family since his parents were out of town the last couple of weeks. It'll be a fun family night. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
And just to add....
Today was full of a lot of fun & craziness. Thanks to my sister
for thinking of me when her friend couldn't make it to the play Wicked. I got to have a fun filled night out with her and her friends and really enjoyed the play.
Before I even had the chance to get ready, though, Ryan and I spent time in the urgent care with Ben getting stitches. :/ Poor boy tripped and fell right into the coffee table. This has been the first "major injury" any of our kids have had....so far. There's still time for more. ;)
After a busy and fun evening, I leave you with this....
Good night to all and sweet dreams!!
Obviously, I have not been good about keeping up with my pleo blog these days. Adding a baby to our mix as well as having an active 2 year old boy running around here has kept me more on my toes and less on the net. That's not a bad thing, though! :) Late nights are common here. Once we get the two older kids to bed and enjoy having some mommy & daddy down time, I try to pick up what I can from the day and then feed baby around 1 or 1:30am. I know eventually Carter we'll sleep longer between feedings and not need this feeding, but for now this is working for us. Atleast I get some things picked up before bed! :) So....before I head off to sleep, here is an updated picture of our kiddos. It was taken about a week and a half ago so as you can imagine Carter only keeps changing and growing! Hope all is well with everyone out there! All of you have a great summer!
He was born at 1:42pm on June 11th.
Here's a link to just a FEW pictures we have of new baby Carter. All is great. More than anything I am very tired. :/ Hope everyone else is well!
