calm before the storm?

Hmmm well it's possible, dare I say, that we have gotten over rough times with Carly? Lately she's been very good. I should knock on wood shouldn't I? There seems to be less tantrums (if any) and she's much more independant. She still wants me around but isn't as demanding about it anymore. Nice!!

On the other hand - she seems to be having less afternoon naps. At least she has quiet time for at least an hour and then she gets up and plays very nicely. I still have a break and she has down time. I have to say that I'm really enjoying her alot more lately. She's alot of fun and completely adorable.

Knock on wood!!!!

wastin away in suburbia

Just kiddin...still loving it living out here. After all, I've always lived out here! I have noticed however that my blog entries are very few and far between. There is a reason for that. I have nothing to write about!!!!!

I suppose I could write about my kids...I've really been having a hard time lately with Carly. She's one tough cookie. She's not a bad baby but man, does she ever scream! And often!! I just can't handle these temper tantrums. I know things will get better once she's able to communicate but lately I have been banging my head against the wall. I have to admit...her neediness has improved this past week. I was able to do dishes a couple of times as well as get her dinner ready in the kitchen without her freaking out. Baby steps!!

Ethan is a little angel, he is so quiet. Well, he's a little whiny sometimes and he can't speak yet at all which worries me but at least he isn't too high maintenance! Today I was thrilled because he took a few bites of chicken. This kid is impossible to feed. All he likes (aside from baby food) is toast with peanut butter, fruit, and junk food!

aaah kids!! I don't know why I thought that I'd be good at this!

I have to admit though, they've been very good the past two days. It's been good. I was actually in such a good mood that I painted my nails and put on some make up. I'm working my way up to brushing my hair and possibly shaving! (kidding)

Well I suppose this blog entry should have been titled winter blahs!!
