I'm still here. Blogging takes two things I don't have much of lately: time and energy.
I'm not a fast blogger. It takes me a while to type out a post, so unless I have a good stretch of time (and energy to stay awake!), I don't even try.
Facebook is much more my speed. A one line status report works better for me. So, I thought I'd share a few and maybe give a little background.
Juli doesn't think two hour naps are worth the night we had last night.
~Tristan took a marathon nap yesterday afternoon. I was thrilled. The kid usually naps for 40 minutes tops. Last night, however, was miserable. He was up repeatedly and stayed up from about 6:30 on.
Juli hates mosquitoes with all her heart, mind, soul, and strength.
~Mosquitoes LOVE me. I usually scrath a mosquito bite until it bleeds. Poor Tristan got 6 mosquito bites in 30 minutes yesterday in our backyard. It's one thing if the little devils mess with me, but when they mess with my baby, I get angry!
Juli may need to come up with a new plan for eradicating grey hairs. My current plan (rip the suckers out) just may leave me bald soon.
~Ummm enough said. It is sad.
In other news...
Noah and Samuel are doing awesome. They are getting so tall. And so loud. I think they may be out of their shells now. Thank God they sleep well! I need a break from all that constant energy. They are still taking 1 1/2 - 2 hour long naps, too. They are eating more and more foods and I would no longer call them picky. They are pretty daring and eat a variety of foods that most kids won't touch. Last night at dinner Samuel said, "I loooove green beans."
Noah is doing #2 pretty consistently on the toilet and is beginning to let us know when he is going #1. Sometimes he will ask to go #1 on the toilet. Samuel has almost no interest in going on the toilet. He's not afraid of it - he will sit there. I think what gets him on the toilet is the possibility of being rewarded for it. Currently the boys are allowed candy and a Cars pull-up with they go #2 on the potty. We don't really have a #1 reward because there's not much interest in #1. I know, I know, you didn't really want to read about potty training!
We've had a lot of "stuff" going on here, and when I can post about it I will. I've been spending a lot of time praying and trying to stay close to God through it all and I think I'm succeeding with that.
