Mostly about me this time…

As you all know, I have usually blogged about the kids, or pregnancy or something along those lines but, today is MOSTLY about me (mostly because I cannot blog and not give some kiddo updates..that is SOOOO not my style) because today is a bit of a big moment in my life. Yesterday, I officially quit my job and, became a SAHM (stay at home mom) which, isn’t a HUGE change for me since I have been home with the kids for over a year and, only returned to work for a week before quitting. The week was rough and, a HUGE adjustment for all of us. I missed my kids, they missed me, Patrick missed home cooked meals….LOL

I am not sure EXACTLY what the future holds but, for now, I am going to get caught up on my laundry and housework, play with my kids and enjoy every minute of them. One of the other “tasks” I will be taking on is getting a bit more involved in our business. As you all know, Patrick is a first aid/CPR instructor/medic/etc. etc. etc and, has provided his services now for the past 6 years. Over those years, he has been adding to his repetoire so, we have finally gotten it all together, registered a website and, the company should have a web presence listing all of our products and services in the very near future:

Happy 1st Birthday Sweet Boy!

I just don’t know where the time has gone this year.  It seems like just yesterday we were bringing our little angel home from the hospital.  But, it is only fitting for my little mover and shaker as, he started growing up too fast right from the moment he was born.  He weighed in at a hair smaller than his sister at 6lbs, 9oz but, he quickly and easily has outgrown his petite little sis and, reached her one year weight of 17lbs, 9oz at his 9 month appointment.  We have his 12 month appointment in a few days so, I will be sure to update with his stats.  This little guy was lifting his head up when on his tummy IN THE HOSPITAL!  He just seemed so much older than his age with so many things.  I remember everyone was SHOCKED when they saw this picture:

Dance Recital!

So, I know I have not blogged in a while but, Sydney had her dance recital today so, I figured I would share some pics videos.

But, before I start with that, an update on Noah, who will be ONE in a few days. 😦  He is almost walking.  He talks 4 or 5 steps now before dropping on his bum.  So, I anticipate he will be full on running in NO TIME.  He also FINALLY popped some more teeth.  He got his two bottom ones about six months I think and, just last week, he got TWO more.  Yes, the two top teeth (which are like saucers) both came in at the same time.  We have his one year apointment on Thursday so, I will be sure to update again with his stats.

Singing and Climbing

That is what’s new in our house this week! LOL  I don’t know if I posted about it but, Sydney is OBSESSED with the movie Annie.  We PVRed it one day and, she watches it constantly now…I guess we have to buy her the DVD for her birthday.  Well, her new favorite thing is to sing Tomorrow.  She sings it any time, any where…the car, the grocery store, standing on a cube..etc. etc. etc.   So, I finally was able to get it on tape:

It’s been a long time…

But, I really did make a New Year’s resolution to be a better blogger! 🙂

We had a busy but wonderful holiday and, loved visiting with friends and family.  However, poor little Noah has had two colds since the start of December.  He got sick just before Christmas and, finally got better only to catch another bug from his sister.  So, needless to say, there has been a LOT of snot in 2009! LOL

Noah is now 10 months old and, growing like a weed.  We just had a check up and his stats were as follows:

I have a crawler!

Yes, I know, I know, I have once again become behind in the blogging and, I promise to get updated with a bunch of stuff (aka Halloween etc.) this week but, I just wanted to pop on with a quick update that Noah is now officially crawling!!!  He has been doing the army drag/crawl for weeks now but, today, he finally got hands and knees in synch and, took off!!!!  I will try and get some video up as well soon…he is tooo cute.  HIs other current favorite thing is to cruise around on the furniture.  We have those square cubes and, he goes all over with them and jumps from one to teh next.  This kid is going to be TROUBLE!! Love it!

Here come the teeth!

Well, as of yesterday, we FINALLY have our first tooth!!  It is the bottom right that came in and, it is a sharp little nub!!!  I am SOOOOO thrilled because, well, lets just say, Noah was NOT handling teething well at all! LOL  He has slept through the last two nights so, I am thinking that the pain has subsided now that the first tooth has popped.

Other than that, we have been busy.  Patrick worked most weekends in the month of September so, last weekend was our first free weekend in a LONG time so, we did some much needed STUFF.  Friday was spent out and about shopping and then home doing some cleaning.  Saturday we were up EARLY and out of the house to pick up some furniture for our office.  Then Sunday, we did more around the house stuff.

WordPress ate the rest of my post and, it has been so long since I posted it so, I am just going to start a new one! LOL

Dragging my BUTT today!

Man I hate days like these!  Noah had a rough night last night which I believe is teething since he has a few ready to break through so, now mommy is having a rough day! LOL  I was in and out of bed all night last night and, because of it, dragging my butt this morning.  To make matters worse, the weather is dreary out so, it isn’t like we can escape to the park to break up the monotony.  Sydney is bored to tears but, I just don’t have it in me to play anything substantial with her.  I laugh at our conversation this morning, “mommy, come dance with me”  “not right now Sydney, mommy is OLD and tired”…”well, I’m not old mommy, come dance!” LOL  I keep trying to convince her that snuggles on the couch are a FUN game but, she is sooooo not falling for it!  It has been a rough month with Pat working 6 days a week for the last 4 weeks so, that is also taking it’s toll.  We have 2.5 more days of it and then he is off for a full 3 days STRAIGHT (yippeee) and, I told him to be prepared cuz he will be my B*tch! LOL  But, I cannot compain since Patrick REALLY understands that 6 days straight of his “work” is nowhere near as draining as 6 days straight of mine! 🙂  Last Friday he had 3 hours alone with the kids and, when I got back from the clinic (possible pink eye), he was a MESS!!!

We had our 4 year anniversary last week and, had a fantastic night out on Friday (thanks to Nanna an Pappa for babysitting).  Poor Pat had some issues with his meal at Baton Rouge but, they were very accomodating and, on top of not charging us for his dinner, free dessert and coffee, they gave us a $20 gift certificate for our next visit!!  Great customer service if you ask me!!

Well, looks like my update ends here since I hear Noah stirring…..
