It would be so lame to write, "It's been a while..." that sort of indicates a few weeks... not almost two months. Ridiculous.
Went to Tennessee for a friend's wedding.
Three weeks later, went to MA to visit Mark's newly married sister and her husband. Also got to see heatheronthehill
and her sweet family. :) Spent an afternoon in Maine and I pretty much fell in love (or re-fell in love. The sea, oh, the sea!).
26 weeks pregnant and very much feeling it. This is the stage where everything hurts... oh, no, wait... that would be every stage. THIS is the stage where baby and I start playing poking games with each other and say sappy things in response to the wriggles the little one makes (three months 'til we find out if it's Violet or Alaric :) ).
Minor medical frustration: the infection in the bone behind my gums has returned, which means I need to schedule the surgery I thought I'd escaped. Peeled back gum and scraped bone - yay, me!
the children are doing brilliantly well... Keegan's medication got decreased another 25%, but then his next blood test was elevated again, so we're back to 75% of the original dosage. He's still charging around doing everything a 2.5 year old ought to be doing (including, paradoxically enough, things he ought NOT to be doing). This week included baby powder all over the couch, a huge bucket of dog food dumped in a toy chest, water from a tea kettle dumped on the living room floor, a heavily salted kitchen counter, opened and consumed teething tablets, and who knows waht else.
Summer is adorable, active, affectionate, and mischievous. Rather like her brother. :) She's started talking too and that's been fun. I suspect that there will come a day where I will need to tell her mommy needs silence for a couple minutes, but right now I love to hear everything she says.
There was supposed to be more, but it's midnight and I'm turning into a pumpkin...
