I said I was going to post once a week, so here ya go...

We started off the week with Hailey having an ear infection. She hasn't had one since she was a baby so I wasn't sure to start with if that was what was going on. It snowed/iced Monday evening so I got to take a trip to the doctor's office Tuesday morning in the snow/ice. Hailey was much better after just two doses of Amoxicillin. However...she has been pretty much a different child since Wednesday...a not so great different child. I think she has started having some jealousy issues towards Caleb which she has never really had. I was trying to figure out if we weren't giving her enough attention or something like that but I really just don't know. I hope this blows over soon. I need my old Hailey back. And if she doesn't start taking naps again I think I might just go nuts. SERIOUSLY!
We said goodbye to our sweet friends, the Truhes, on Monday. They will be gone for three years. And while skype is great, there is nothing like sitting in the living room having conversations with them while our kids run wild =)
Caleb turned 8 months old on Thursday. He is starting to look more like a little boy than a baby. His first tooth popped through this morning. I am really going to miss his gummy grin. Although, all that is there is a little point so I think I will still have it a little while longer.
On another note...I am getting old.... and I don't like it. A few days ago I realized that I will we 26 in two months. 26. I know that may not sound old but 25 was kind of hard for me. And 26 is closer to 30 than 20. I know it is inevitable. I also had to schedule myself an eye exam because I had to close my left eye and squint to read my book. And I found a bag of what-used-to-be-frozen baby food up in the cabinet where apparently I put it when I was finished instead of putting it back in the freezer. And, I can't finish sentences. And, I forget why I walked in the room. And, I mix words up all the time. I am getting old. Everyone keeps telling me to embrace it...I haven't embraced it yet.
I found a verse this morning that I have heard a million times but needed to be reminded of. Proverbs 15:1 " A gentle answer turns away wrath, but harsh words stir up anger." Note to self...think before you speak.

  1. I am laughing so hard at you right now! 26 is NOT old:))) I am now 40!!! Hard to believe for sure and I STILL do all those things you mentioned. I think it is more that you are a mommy instead of old:)
