Life Update March 11

Nick

I don’t know if I mentioned this in the last update, in fact, I was pretty sure I hadn’t because at the time (I think) it wasn’t 100 percent set in stone yet, but Nick has a new job. He seems to enjoy it a lot, even if it keeps him busy, and the hours are a lot better. Even working overtime almost every week at his new job, he still gets to come home and see his kids every night and it’s been a lot less stressful around our house because of his new job. It is a huge blessing and I am so, so grateful for it.

I don’t think a lot is new in my life. I mean, it is and it isn’t. Most of my new stuff revolves around my kids and so that it goes under there. But for me, not a lot changes. I wake up and I take care of the kids and I blog and I read and I live my life. Nick and I did go on a date to Dave and Busters for the first time earlier this week so that was a lot of fun. Neither of us had ever been so it was a completely new experience.

Dominic

Dominic surprises me more and more every day by the ways he grows and changes. It is an incredible thing to grow a baby within your body, to birth that child and then to watch them grow up into their own person. Nothing I know compares to that. He is so talkative and while sometimes he can be too rough, he is also very kind and sweet and gentle. He is generally very considerate of his baby brother. He loves to go say good morning to Allen and hug him and tell me all about him. This is not to say he is without challenges, tantruming and not listening are more often than I’d like par for the course, but he is also sweet and wonderful and amazing which helps me get through the rough parts. He loves maps and whenever we get one he will study it for days afterwards. He loves to read books and he is learning so much. He knows the letter sounds for a, g, x, and z and he can recognize the word “of” which I wasn’t even trying to teach him. Ha! I try really hard not to brag on my kid most of the time, but he truly amazes me and I am really quite blessed to be his mom.

Allen

I am super blessed to be this little guy’s mom as well. He is such a giggly and smily baby. Right now it’s 9:41 and I wish he was sleeping because I’m so tired, but overall he is a good sleeper so I can’t complain. He sits really well and can roll from front to back, but he can’t yet roll from back to front. He has two teeth, which I absolutely can not believe and he’ll be 5 months next week. He is such a natural part of our family that it’s hard to think back to life when we were just three. He was sick last week (pink eye plus a cold with a fever), but he’s doing a lot better. Dominic was never sick when he was this little so it was hard and it’s even harder when you feel like there’s nothing you can do.
