these days from 3 years ago! Whew, I would say that going from zero to one was much harder than one to two kids, but this time around it's harder and more fun in different ways. The hardest part I think for me thus far is timing. Timing feedings with pre-school, the park, the science center, basically anything that involves Ollie...and struggling to not feel as if I am giving him the shaft...that's been hard. But we're are all adjusting. Sarah Claire is still such a sweetie pie, she still has reflux the Zantac seems to be helping but she still spits up which sometimes feels like a personal failure to me, but I think I am learning that some babies just do that and she's ok...but still frustrating. She does take a paci now, the gerber nuk, but only if she's hungry and can't get what she really wants and it only lasts for about 2-3 minutes. I did get her to nap in the swing yesterday for about an hour, but that hasn't been that big of a deal b/c she really enjoys sleeping in her bed. Speaking of beds...we moved Ollie into the guest bedroom as of 2 weeks ago, into the big high off the ground queen size bed. So far so good...Sarah Claire moved into the crib... and everyone has their own space!
We've been blessed by so many friends and family who have fed us, prayed for us, and played with us over the past 4 weeks. My sincere apologies if you've texted, called or facebooked (is that a verb?) and I have not gotten back to you, hopefully I will soon. Ok, well I think that is most of the update...maybe if I'm lucky I can catch a few minutes of rest as well!

Well thinking pink we are...I found these 4 fabrics the other day and love, love, love them. I am inspired by this set so would like to use these fabrics to create something similar. My sweet and thoughtful mother in love has volunteered to create this, pink girly masterpiece for baby Sarah Claire's room. So take a look at the fabric if you will, and the pottery barn set and give us some thoughts on how you would make this work as we "think pink!"

Yes, we ran away to Oriental this weekend and took some of our best buds. It was so good to be in our favorite coastal spot, we haven't been there since December the sun was warm, the wind was refreshing and location always what the doctor ordered. Yes, Sarah Claire was there, she loved it! Hoping to use my zoom lens on her this week!

Moby today Sarah Claire seemed to like it a ton. We are learning more and more about our baby girl each day. She is very different than her brother, so funny how different two kids can be. She doesn't like a paci (we've tried 3 different kinds,) doesn't really dig the swing yet, was put on baby zantac yesterday and just simply loves to be snuggled a lot. So we're all still adjusting. Ollie is growing up more and more, I've enjoyed getting to be with him more but man I don't know how his teachers can do it with 16 three year olds all day. We've had a lot of other things going on around here mainly we may or may not have sold our house...more to come on that later. It's been an exciting few weeks. Love any suggestions on how to get SC to learn to love the paci (she is trying really hard to get her fingers/ thumb in but just gets frustrated) and the swing...Ollie LOVED the swing!

Checking in this week...we are still doing good, still eating a lot, working on sleeping, made some more adjustments last night which made it in my opinion the best night yet...we are remembering however that sleep is optional at this stage in the game. Matt's mom came for a few days this week and was a great help and Grandpa Hank and Uncle Ben stopped by for a little while yesterday. Ollie is getting a bit stir crazy that poor kid is his mother's child alright, must be around people...so he's looking forward to going to school tomorrow. We switched him to part time, so he now goes Mon/Fri from 9-1pm, to give me a bit of a break and rest and keep him in the flow at his school. The pink outfits are flowing in daily it seems and I just want to play dress up and try them all on, but baby girl doesn't much like to get her clothes or diaper changed so we'll have to wait a while on that one.
