I don't think I've missed a month since I started this blog. Wow. I totally missed April. I was a busy month. The boys enjoyed their Spring break and my sister Sabrina came to visit for a weekend. Poor Brandon spent his time serving Uncle Sam. He averaged 70 to 80 hours a week this last month. With no let up in sight until June-July. We're grateful he's got a job, but in reality, with the hours he's working, he could get two jobs and make a lot more money. I don't really have a lot to post about, but I'm afraid that if I don't soon get back into the habit, I'll stop. I really don't want to do that. This is a wonderful journal-ing tool. I'm bad at keeping a real journal so this is really important. I want to look into having it printed into a yearly book. I just don't know how, so I haven't yet. Anyone know how I go about doing that?
The boys are all doing well. Well, sort of. Seth is sick with a nasty case of strep throat right now. So nasty that I actually broke down and am giving him antibiotics. I'm a firm believer that our bodies, with the help of herbs and supplements, can in fact, fight off most things. Including streptococcus. This time though, it's worse than I've ever seen. His throat started closing up and he was really struggling to breathe. I was very grateful for modern medicine about 7pm last night. He is on the mend and will feel better soon I'm sure.
Sadie is growing and changing everyday. She is four months old now and weighs about 14 pounds. She's still on the short side and I don't foresee that changing. She's been rolling over for a month and a half now. She beat out all the boys. They were all into their fourth month when they rolled over. She wasn't even quite three months. Granted, it wasn't everyday when she started, but she could still do it. She has also found her voice. WOW. Is she ever loud too. Let the record show that she will NOT go unheard! She has the most beautiful smile and lights up whenever you talk to her. She is however, very sensitive. Especially when she's tired. She gets all kinds of bent out of shape when she's tired and something happens that she's not expecting. I have enjoyed every aspect of having a little girl. She is amazing and I'm so grateful I've been blessed with the opportunity to help raise her. So blessed.
I'm hoping to be better at posting this month. We don't have anything very exciting going on right now, but I'm sure I can come up with something.
