Still kicking

It's been a while since I updated, but I've been reading other blogs, and it seems that we've been having a taste of what everyone else has been having as well. Hannah was sick over the Holidays - didn't see the little tiger for 12 days! Boy, did I miss her!!

The babies were both sick between Christmas and New Year's. Peter's been fighting a stuffy nose and coughing for almost a month now, and then I really got bad last week. Had been having allergy/sinus problems for a while, but whatever got a hold on me really did it right. You mommies can sympathize with me - you just can't go lay down when you have little ones, no matter how badly you need to! So I saved my sleeping for the evenings and overnight. I now have the battle scars to prove that I've been sick. Don't ask....

Hannah's discovered that she likes her hair to be up in a bun. Not with pins, just with a couple of ponytail holders wrapped around it. Keeps it up off her neck, which is a good thing.

Monkey's hair is (finally) long enough to put into pigtails. She's so stinkin' cute anyway, and the pigtails just make you wanna say "ooooooohhhhhhhhh". I think she likes it as well. She's definately in her terrible two's - believe you me!! Some days are better than others, but still.... there's just nothing like it when she looks at me and says "I love you, Nene". My heart just melts.

Mazie's growing by leaps and bounds. She's starting to test her limits. She's learning to let go and stand on her own, or just holding on with one hand. She's going to be walking before too long. She's enjoying her two top teeth, at least until she sticks her fingers in her mouth and bites herself. You should hear her squall then! LOL Her two bottom ones are right under the skin, Peter says he'll give her until Monday for them to break through.

Peter's overtime has slacked up significantly, but he just got an offer for a different position - Saints, please pray that if it's for him, that he'll get it. And while you're praying, please pray that it will come with better compensation than he's getting now. He's been actually doing the job for well over a year without being paid for the work he does, but it would be nice to have that little extra coming in, and he's well qualified for it. If it's not what God wants, that's fine too. Just please pray.

In the meantime, he's been going several evenings/afternoons a week to paint and work at Mom's house. He's really tired, but wants to help as much as he can. He sat down and slept all evening yesterday - he was just so tired. Poor fella. I haven't gone over because after the girls leave in the evening, I'm totally bushed. I went to bed at 6:30 one night earlier this week! Now that's sad....

So that's what's going on in our corner of the world. If you've made it this far, please leave a comment to let me know that someone's actually reading my bloggishment! :) Thanks!!
