Well, SIL is on her way to New Orleans.... it took all of my willpower not to conceal myself in her suitcase
Still no desktop, but Dh's laptop is still home. I am so not looking forward to when he whisks it away again. Oh well, it's been good for weaning me off of a couple of boards that I posted infrequently on anyway.
I am SO going to miss SIL being around! First, she was fabulous with the girls ~ very hands on and eager to play. More so, though, I'm going to miss our days together just hanging out and talking. It feels very quiet and lonely here this morning.
Brynn is *this* close to crawling. She has the bear crawl and the commando crawl down pat, but something hasn't clicked yet with old-style. She's been close for 3 weeks now.... the first 2 weeks she plugged away with grace, jolliness and patience.... this week she is FRUSTRATED. Mega frustrated. She gets pissed when she can't get to where she wants to go fast enough, and she also has decided that maybe she'll just bypass the whole crawling thing and go straight to standing. Of course, her abilities here also do not meet her ambitions. Did I mention she's a tad frustrated?? wooo boy. I've always been so glad that she's taking things slow and that I can enjoy each stage, but I have to say that I am now eagerly awaiting her being able to crawl and feel jolly again
Tess is feeling her Auntie's absence today, I think. Lots of tears this morning, and I'm happy with how patient I've felt about it all. Some days are already feeling long at 9am though, and I'm afraid to say this is one of them.
Ok, I have some catching up to do so I'll go read a bit. No way I can hope to read everything, but Brynn's napping and Tess is involved so I might as well give it a go!
