rolling over, writing, and gardening

Liam finally started rolling over onto his tummy last week.  At first he would just roll over then immediately spring back to his back.  Yesterday he hung out on his tummy for awhile before rolling back.  This morning he was hanging out on his tummy when I went to get him from his crib.  So definite progress.  So far he has no interest in crawling, but loves to stand.

Rowan is getting better and more interested in writing every day.  Yesterday he wrote each of us our own note (I love mommy, I love daddy, I love Liam).  It was very sweet.

I continue to be overwhelmed by the whole vegetable garden idea.  I want to create one, but it is a whole new frontier.  I think once I have it all underway it will be ok.  Just getting started is a bit daunting.

Liam and Rowan's new tricks

So, Liam has been eating solid food for a little over a month now.  Mostly still on the single foods and oatmeal.  He makes the most wonderful faces when trying new foods.  He also has been able to intermittently roll over from tummy to his back.  He seems to be working rolling over from his back to his stomach, but can't quite manage to get his legs over.  For the last couple of days he has been able to sit up on his own.  It is really cute when he has been sitting there and suddenly just sort of falls over. 

Liam also has previously lulled us into a false sense of security.  He was sleeping through the night for about 2 1/2 weeks straight for awhile there in February, then.... not so much.  Of course we have been all off for the last week with the cold of doom which has jumped from Rowan to Liam to me to David.   fun, fun, fun

Rowan has been getting pretty good at writing his name and recognizing all the letters.  He likes to entertain Liam and make him laugh.  He is pretty anxious for Liam to be mobile so he can play with him.  At home he loves to play the passing game, in which he runs circles around the house and we count the laps.  When we get to a preset number then we have to catch him.

As for the rest of us....  I am still slowly on the job hunt.  I mostly still hyperventilate when I think of not being with Liam all day, but the job has got to happen sometime.  David is still enjoying his job and raiding with his new WoW guild.  We have been heading to the Library every week.  They just finished building a new Library and it is really nice.  We are all just looking forward to Spring and the warmer weather. 

Also I updated our website again (www.abzug.org).  I added more than just new Liam and Rowan pictures.  I updated the family picture pages for David and I and added a height/weight table for both kids.

so 4 years later...

Time really flies....  Talk about procrastination...  I mean to post but then something comes up.   The last time I posted Rowan was 5 months old.  He is so big now.

Liam started to occasionally sleep through the night last Friday.  We are desperately hoping that it will continue.  Of course this means that I have run out of excuses for not looking for work.  I only wish I knew what I was looking for.  It would be easier if I could temp to hire (like last time), but you can't really do that when there is daycare involved.  It just cost to much without the promise of a steady income. 

Anyways...  I recently updated our website (www.abzug.org), but it only current through November. Need to collect pictures from the holiday.  We were so good at taking (and posting) pictures with Rowan.  Seems like there is never enough time these days.

Well, sad as it may seem, it is past my bedtime.  Off to bed

(no subject)

So I am still trying to get everything ready for Rowan's arrival. At this point it is a little daunting knowing that he could come at any time. So I finished the baby blanket, reposted a whole web site (www.abzug.org) complete with a Rowan page that has pictures of the baby room. Now I am working on making some mixes of stuff to listen to while I am in labor. I found I have a lot of odd stuff in my music collection.
If only I could get that nesting thing, where I actually want to clean the house instead of looking at the house knowing I should clean it but don't.
The sun is out today.... I should go for a walk, but I don't usually make it very far...
David is working again. Hopefully they will ship this game soon.
I am irritated that our cat Abby has suddenly decided that he must pee of my throw rug. Several years of peeing in the litter box and now this... I don't know what to make of it. If it is sign that he upset with the changing dynamic of our household then I am don't want to find out what he is going to do once the baby is born.
I am getting to the point where I am ready to not be pregnant anymore. It is just so hard to get comfortable, especially since once I do get comfortable I invariably have to pee.
Anyways.. it is time to burn the CD, so I am off...

First post

So I thought I would actually post something up here....
kinda bored.... David is playing Rise of Nations or something to that effect and I was trying to find a particular screen shot from an old Buffy video, but alas, it was not to be found.
Oh well...
We did I bit more baby shopping today. I sometimes think that we tend to spend money way to quickly... I am always sort of frightened when I get our credit card bill. The scary thing is that it will only get worse when the baby comes. Of course that makes the stay at home/go back to work thing all the more difficult.
So I am still having a hard time trying to actually wrap my brain around the fact that in about 7 or 8 weeks we are going to have a baby. I mean talk about life changing... It is like my brain refuses to comprehend the changes that are going to come. So I think it is fair to say that I am right terrified of the whole thing.
Since we have started taking this preparation for childbirth class, the fear has only gotten worse. A lot of the couples seem to have all this information... I guess I should get right on those baby books.
anyways I still have to find the crib bedding set to order, so I am off to search the web. oh the fun!
