Four months old and 18 pounds!

Yes, our chunky monkey is already 18 lbs.  And he's the cutest chunky monkey I've ever met.  : )

Once Upon a Time...

...there was this girl.  She was a very social girl, and when she finally joined the blogging bandwagon, she ate it up.  She thought of things to post all the time, and looked constantly for any feedback to her posts, because she loves validation.  And she read everybody else's posts the moment they were up, and commented because of the social being she is.

And then that girl got pregnant again with her fourth. 

On purpose.  : ) 

And she remembered it was going to be hard, but it's even harder when you're actually in the middle of it, not just remembering it's hard.  And her need for sleep seems to just increase more and more.  Uninterrupted sleep, mind you.  (aaah, how you miss it when you no longer get it)

But even though it's hard, her new baby is so completely adorable, and her other children have such wonderful moments that she relishes.  (This song, called "Pachelbel Bedtime," is a good 'ole favorite that demonstrates how hard the whining and crying is, but how you still love those kids and wouldn't change anything for the world)

So, blogging has fallen by the wayside a bit, but that girl hopes that there will be a time and a place where she can keep up a little bit more and start putting up posts of the funny things her kids say.  And then maybe she can even start catching up on all of your posts, too!

Uh oh, that little girl's baby just woke up from his nap, and the groceries must be bought, the kids picked up, the dentist appointments completed, and then possible a trip to the pool after some homework and reading time.  Time to go.  But she'll be back sporadically.  ; )
