So, What’s Going On In LIFE

So, I know I’ve been completely slacking (that’s not new for me) but it just seems like since my news a couple of weeks ago that my head has been completely there.  My life has had to make a major turn and it’s been a little over-whelming.  The key word in that sentance is “life”, I still have one and I am still living it.  Right now chemo is every other week, soon it will be every week and I’ll have more bad days than good so for the next 2 months I better enjoy LIFE completely.  That sounded kinda downer and I don’t mean for it to.  I’m only going to feel bad for 3 months, and that’s such a minor piece of life especially when you look at the fact that I’m going to be on this Earth for 100 years!

Of course I’m enjoying every minute of my life with my kids right now.  They do nothing but make me smile.  I know that God gave them to me this past year to give me the biggest reason of all to fight what I’m fighting.  They are my joy!

My youngest joy turns 5 months old today!!

she is so close to rolling over!  That darn arm just stays in her way and it makes her sooooo mad.  I know it’s going to happen at any minute and I really hope it happens this weekend so our whole family can witness it.  She’s also starting to sleep all night!!!  Not all the time but most of the time.  It’s wonderful!  I honestly don’t feel like she’s “behind” anymore and has completely caught up from being 6 weeks premature.  She’s right where Zach was at this age (ok, Zach was 5 1/2 months old, close enough, right?)

Zach finally got tubes put in his ears yesterday.  Finally!!!  You don’t understand, we’ve been trying since February to make this happen.  This poor little guy has had this ear infection since Thanksgiving.  Yah.  Since Zach isn’t “mine” I couldn’t consent to him getting the surgery, I had to have a judge approve it and the approval had to happen within 30 days of surgery.  Really.  It took 4 tries to make this happen but it finally happened yesterday.  He was a trooper.  They said he would go home and sleep all day. Nope.  Not my Zach.  He napped an hour an was off and running the rest of the day.

On Sunday Steve bough Zach a Cozy Coupe for Father’s Day?  Zach was so excited that he couldn’t wait for Steve to assemble it for him.  Lesson to Steve, never try to assemble the toys in the living room while the child is awake!  Here’s Zach trying to help him and now I have to get pictures of him playing in it outside.

My living room is in complete disarray now.  I’m breaking out all of Sarah’s 3 – 6 month clothes and putting away all of her 0 – 3 month stuff.  I’m also trying to “permanently” pack for them.  For the kids my plan is to take a ton of clothes to our parents’ homes and leave them there, the clothes, not the kids.  I think it will make my life easier if I don’t have to pack for them, they have tons of clothes so taking 10 outfits each down there won’t be a big deal.  My only “hold-up” is that they will only ever wear the same 10 outfits and no one will see the variety of adorable clothes they have.  Stupid, I know.  Anyway, I’m trying to do this huge packing job so I don’t have to do it again for a long time.  Make sense?  I wish I had enough clothes to do that for myself.

Life is going on and it’s pretty close to normal.  We’re not letting this “thing” get in my way!

One Year Ago . . .

yesterday I brought home the most incredible gift of all, Zach!  I can’t help but stare at him in amazement of what the last year has been.  He is no longer a baby, he is this crazy little boy that is developing the most wonderful personality.  I can’t imagine my life without him.  He came into my life at such a wonderful time, we both needed each other and I love him so much.  I can’t imagine loving this little guy any more than if I had actually given birth to him.  Zach, you have no idea how much you mean to me.  I love this face!
