More sickies here (Judah throwing up for the second time in 2.5 weeks), my computer crashed, and he's waking up AGAIN... Gotta run...
Okay, I'm going to bed... Really. This has been quite an night, and I've been kept up by the kids most of the last three. :yawning:
I'm on DH's computer... Mine is home but will need software updates to get it back where it was. And I'm in desperate search of someone to take my drive apart and get the data off, in spite of the mechanical failure. I don't know how much more THAT will cost, but I can't imagine losing all of my pictures.
Hopefully a company I contacted tonight will let us know in the morning what to expect of recovery and how much it will cost.
Life just seems WEIRD right now and I can't quite figure it out. Grieving our friend, trying to help his family (but at times not feeling close or involved or particularly thinking about it at all); getting ready for my MIL's visit (did I mention she's staying HERE for 7 nights?!), but getting totally thrown off my planned housecleaning schedule by sick kids; trying to plan ahead for Christmas, but freaking out that it's just around the corner; time is FLYing and the last week or two seems very blurry. I have too many things to think about, and not having my own computer with which to manage it all is really hard.
And I should probably go take some fish oil.
Katie, so glad you heard the HB!! That's such a great experience. It definitely makes it feel more "real."
Is anyone else's baby's look changing to a "big kid" look, i.e., not baby? I'm so ready to
: because he looks SO grown up now! When Judah turned 1, he still had his soft features and baby roundness. And now, he's getting leaner (okay, two episodes of stomach virus could account for that!
) and longer and just. so. BIG! We keep telling him to STOP!
He's talking a ton more all the time... Lots of nonsense words (the boys started saying the other day that he is their "Chinese brother," apparently because it sounds like Mandarin, which it does!), but more real ones, too. We were at a big park down town (ooh, the drama
! the stories!) and he saw dogs and said, "Dah!" every time. He's said it for a while but it was so neat 'cause someone ELSE heard him and knew what he was saying.
He's just learning SO much now - it's amazing. He's started hitting at people, so I've again been saying, "gentle," and stroking his hand on me, and he started responding to that now by being gentle.
Anyway, won't go on and on ... more...
But it's just amazing how much they grow and how fast they learn!!
: Hugs to all! Miss everyone!
