I have so many thoughts going on in my head lately and haven't had time to write a "real" post so I guess I am need of a true brain dump.
  • My precious baby started crawling last week. I know, where did the time go? She is almost 8 months old and tearing around this house like no body's business. She is also slightly trying to get herself to a kneeling position while she holds onto items. I think she will be an early walker for sure.
  • I would post a darling video that I shot on my camera of her crawling, but for some stupid reason blogger takes forever to upload videos (or it never happens at all) and I don't have the time (or patience) to mess with it all right now.
  • Speaking of where did the time go....I signed my other "baby" up for preschool for the fall semester. A local Christian school just started a 2's program last year, so Kaiden will go in that program starting in August. They work on colors, shapes, numbers, letters, have a "Jesus and Me" time, and even potty training. I think it will be great for him to have two mornings a week to get out while Madelyn is napping and learn, socialize and play. Sniff, sniff. I suppose it is preparing Mommy for the day when real school comes.
  • I think I finally found a reliable, trustworthy babysitter. She is a high school senior that will be going away to college in the Fall so I only have her for a few months. But she came over last week to meet the kids and sit down with us to chat. I seriously felt like she was my age rather than 17. I think she will be fabulous with the kids and finally hubs and I can have date nights or I can get a afternoon off to go run errands whenever I want!
  • I woke up yesterday morning with a huge pimple on my chin. It's absurd. I am an early 30 year old woman and I am still breaking out like a 13 year old teenager. Friggin' hormones.
  • Hubs and I alternate mornings to go to the gym before the kids get up and he leaves for work. I was supposed to go this morning, but I told him to go instead cause I had a pimple. Seriously. I didn't go to work out because I had a pimple. It's that scary.
  • I am feeling so overwhelmed lately. Like everything that I do around here is pointless. I clean up the toys and 5 minutes later they are everywhere again. I do the laundry and that night there is a pile forming again. I do the dishes from breakfast and 2 hours later there are more dishes piling up. So, I feel like "what's the point?" It's a funk that I go through every once-in-a-while. I'll get over it, but until then I like to wallow in my sorrows.
  • Oh my goodness. I am on the last book in the Twilight series. Oh. My. Goodness. You know that part when Bella and Edward....and Jacob.....and Bella and Rosalie...oh my goodness. So good. So good! I don't want it to end.

Okey dokey. I guess I better get back to my dishes and laundry and dusting and vacuuming and....

Congrats to Miss Madelyn! It is so scary how quickly they grow up. Maeve's only 12 days old and I'm already thinking she's getting too old too fast!
I also commend you for going to the gym. I haven't seen my gym in 2 years...sigh!
