I needed to sit and type a post just to catch my breath. I realize I’ve not been very prolific with the post quantity lately. Life’s been pretty crazy getting ready to go back to work. We were so lucky to find a great nanny quickly and easily. Even still, there is a lot of work getting your life packaged in such a way that someone else can take over big chunks of it.
On top of all of the work it’s taken to get myself set up to work and her set up to work, Kyle had a really heavy stretch of traveling so I was single parenting much of it. Quick FB updates on my personal page have been about all I’ve been able to do lately – so here’s a quick snippet of what it’s looked like.
There’s been a bit of a poop theme.
The boys both started swim lessons and Kellen has finished floor hockey and ice skating. We had one week of over lap, so on Tuesday they had swim lessons and then we raced to floor hockey. On Thursday it was ice skating first…the swim suits didn’t get dry from washing before we had to leave the house.
Owen has decide only one blanket matters. The blanket’s name is Monkey. After a few thwarted attempts at washing Monkey, I went on a search for a Monkey II. One of Owen’s NICU nurses and a fellow preemie dad on Instagram found it on Ebay.
Unfortunately, Owen knows Monkey a little too well.
I’ve got some new artwork that I Love, LOVE, LOVE for the blog. Check out the artist, Jason, a high school classmate of mine, on Facebook.
Life imitated art, Owen had his first trip to the Mall of America for rides. He’s a dare-devil and thought the faster rides were better than the slower ones. I know you’re not surprised.
We even got a play date with NICU friend, Isaiah, at the new Amplatz Chidren’s Hospital Playground. Owen had just finished his hearing test. The doctor was thrilled that he’s still showing no signs of hearing loss. Typically, she starts to see issues by now, if it’s going to happen. (fingers crossed…Owen says, “take that, CMV”).
In total, I think you could say I’m pretty tired.
But really, we’re totally keeping it together…
