Nana's Visit

Ok, so life with 3 is way more hectic than life with 2 and everything non-kid related has definitely taken a backseat (especially blogging). Trying to find a moment alone is might near impossible and when there is one, it is either extremely short lived or filled with a much needed catnap (might I emphasize much needed).

And so, since right now is one of those rare moments, I am going to keep this brief in hopes of getting this finished before one of the little hoodlums wakes up.

Nana (my mom), with her miraculously timed visit, flew in the day before I went into labor. Thank God.
She had barely been here 24hours, was extremely sleep deprived, jet lagged from flying all night and was thrown into an all out kid whirlwind. But she managed it tremendously. (If you disreagard the state of the house when I got home. Holy toys and dishes everywhere! But, the kids were safe, fed and happy and that's all that matters. Right, Mom?)

But I digress. Nana was a huge help while she was here and I am quite certain we would not have made it through that first week without her help. The adjustment of having another baby in the house was difficult on everyone, especially Sammers.
But as the week rolled on, things started to settle down a bit and life around the house began to return to normal with monster truck races, auto transporter loading and unloading, airplane flying, Lego building, race track constructing, Samsquatch destroying, soccer playing, baby holding, cookie baking, fit throwing, and Nana loving.
Here Nana & Bo are measuring how much snow we got the night before
And here they are watercoloring
It was a great week and a half. Thank you, Nana. We love you.

Fall - The Season of the Red Head

Who's Who?

First Day of Pre-School

Today was Bo's first day of pre-school and he did great. He said he was sad that I left him but never cried. He was such a big boy with his spider man backpack and matching lunch box. I so wish I had taken a picture of him but he didn't want me to and the last thing I wanted to do was add more anxiety to the morning, so I let him off the hook.

He will be going 3 mornings a week for 3 hours and I am so excited for him. I think it will be a great outlet for him this winter; a way to get out of the house and away from the cooped-up-ness that comes along with a new baby. I just hope he enjoys it. How could he not? It's attached to Gymnastics, Inc of all places and they get to go into the gym to play every day. Can't beat that.

I Hate Murphy

As if things aren't crazy enough around here already with Wes leaving Coldwell Banker in 13 days and opening up his own brokerage, our third baby is due in 30 days and Wes' office is falling apart. His awesome brand new office manager has been out of town for a week mourning the suicide of his brother, his escrow coordinator goes on vacation on Friday, and now his listing coordinator has the Swine Flu. Are you kidding me?!? Oh, and up until a few hours ago we thought Wes had a fractured foot. Let's just say I won't be surprised at all if I go into labor tonight. It would only be fitting.
