I'm back, and ready to scrap! How have you all been the past couple weeks? We are all finally feeling a-o-k, and ready to return to the land of the living. Thankfully, Erin did not get sick, although she has been dealing with teething the past couple days. Kyla was diagnosed with croup and we put her on prednisone to help keep her from coughing so terribly. It worked like a charm, but I thought the kid was going to eat us out of house and home while she was on it! One night, my picky-I-only-eat-enough-to-keep-a-bird-alive toddler ate THREE piece of pizza, a salad, and a popsicle! Remind me NEVER to take this medicine - I'd end up as big as a house! I never got the fullblown virus, but was just soooo tired it was all I could do to keep up with the kidlets.
In other news, I FINALLY GOT MY LAPTOP!!!! Crops, here I come!! I am waiting on DH to install the wireless router, then I will be totally up and running with it. I have noticed a few minor issues switching between my pc and laptop, so if any goofs show up in a template by accident, let me know! I am just soooo incredibly excited to no longer be tied down in the office. Yippee!
Other things to report:
Erin, at just 7 months, pulled up to standing 2 days ago. She is now a pro at getting up, but not down, so is easily frustrated. However, when she gets herself up, she is so thrilled she just bangs like crazy on whatever she is holding onto.
One of the moms from my local online community has become a published author! We have been reading her stories on our site for a while, so I am soooo excited for her:
The Adventures of Curlylocks and Stripperella: A Modern Mother's Tale
My Granny did pass this past weekend. I am sad that she is gone, but almost relieved that she is not so weakened anymore. When she was so sick in June, I went to see her, and was so sad about how weak she was. She has always been a little ball of energy, and that part of her was gone. Her funeral is in the morning. I am going to go by myself, and Jon will stay here with the girls. There are some religious differences between the branches of our family, and I don't want to even try to explain things to K yet. She and E are both too young to even understand death, so this will be my time to mourn her. This is one of my favorite pics with her, taken at my wedding in 03:
I am having milk supply issues...again. Nursing will never be easy for me, so this is just one more thing I have to deal with. K weaned earlier than I wanted too, b/c my supply dropped and I didn't know it until it was too late. This time, I knew what to look for, so we have caught it early enough to try to remedy.
And, onto the goods!
