My phone was running out of space, so I finally did something with the last 9+ months of cell phone photos...

Videos are coming next!

Hadley's Hospital Stay

Last week Hadley spend a night in the hospital for a mosquito bite that swelled her eye shut and a persistant ear infection.  She was okay, she just needed IV antibiotics and some testing to make sure she didn't have an infection in her eye.

It totally sucked for me, but she was a happy little patient!

Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics. I didn't have a chance to run home for my good camera. Or, you know... a toothbrush and a change of clothes...

Almost Famous

Look who made page 63 of The Alcalde!

The Alcalde is the alumni magazine for The University of Texas at Austin.  It's a big deal.

We sent in Hadley's photo to be in the calf corral... a section at the back of the magazine with 20-30 babies.  Imagine our surprise when we saw her on this fancy spread!

This is totally getting framed.

I know her Pops is super proud.

We are, too!  I just keep pushing away the thought that she is naked and darn close to a centerfold...

7 Months

Baby sister is seven months old today!

Hadley,  at seven months:

You weigh about 18 pounds

You sleep well, eat well, and play well

You rub your hair when you are sleepy

You LOVE the bath, splashing like crazy and scooting your bottom all over the tub to get to toys and your sister

You are fascinated with the dogs and they let you pull hair, eat tails, and slobber on their faces

You put anything and everything in your mouth

You are ticklish under your armpits

You are pretty darn mobile even without crawling yet

You have the prettiest blue eyes

You are more fun each and every day!

The Princess and the Pea

Dear Kherington,

You are growing so stinkin' fast!

Just this week you started sleeping in your big girl bed.

And ate a bowl of cereal with milk.

And learned to catch fire flies. Life with you is magical, sweet girl!

Your language skills are astounding.

You drink milk by the gallon.

You have a new love affair with playing dress up. And hosting tea parties. And helping Mommy cook.

You can't be trusted with a pen or a marker. Even a washable marker.

You just discovered headbands and won't go anywhere without one, or two, or five.  You even sleep in them. In your big girl bed.

Ahhh! Too fast!

Feel free to grow a little slower. Love, Mama

Checking In

I'm still here.


I'm really busy.  {and that is the understatement of the year}

I have two full time jobs.  And both are only getting 80% out of me right now.
My kids are only getting 80% of what they deserve.
My poor husband is only getting 20%.
And I am only putting 15% into taking care of myself.

And that isn't fair to anyone involved.

But I'm not willing and/or able to let go of anything that I'm doing.

So life is a work in progress...
