Over Promise...Under Deliver

Okay, so maybe I "over promised" in my crazy post! Although I have been feeling more upbeat, working on being a kinder wife and trying to be more active with the kids, I have not been able to find time to update this blog! Rest assured, I've got a list of things to post- it's just a matter of finding the time!

First and foremost I want to thank everyone who commented on my last post. All your kind words, messages of encouragement, and overall support really have helped. When I'm having a particularly challenging day, I open up the post and read your comments. I've read the comments about a zillion times! It's funny how complete strangers can make such a difference. So thank you, thank you, thank you.

I'm happy (now there's a word I haven't used in awhile) to report Norah's noggin is PERFECT! Yes, it still has a mild flat spot, but the specialist at Children's Hospital said she couldn't tell if it was, in fact, from being on her back to much OR if it was genetic. The specialist said her head was completely symmetrical, and that if she was of Asian descent, her flat spot wouldn't even be an issue. Then she went on to say that if she saw us in the hospital, it wouldn't have crossed her mind that we were there because of her head. [enter heavy sigh of relief here] I LOVE telling this story. Sometimes I go over it in my head, just because it makes me feel better. My little darlin' is just fine!

I actually took the kids to get their pictures taken. I got my hopes up thinking Preston would cooperate. We didn't get one shot with both of them together. Total bummer.

Preston: 2 years, 8 months and 30.5 pounds (Need to measure him to see how tall he is or isn't!)

Norah: 19 weeks, 16 1/2 pounds and 24 3/4" long

Norah is soooooo cute! I do believe that she has gotten cuter as she got older! If I wasn't a complete stranger and if I didn't live so far away, I would be begging you to let me hold her! Preston also looks very grown up!

Hi, I've been following your blog a long time, and I've enjoyed it. You have a gift for humor.

I'm glad that you are feeling better! And, your kids are cute!
