Happy One Month Birthday Liam!

Today is my sweet baby boy's one month birthday! He is already grown SO much, and while I'm very blessed to have such a healthy and happy baby, it makes me sad seeing him grow so quickly already.  

He is my last baby, and every now and again that thought will creep into my head and remind me that this will be my last such-and-such milestone, such as my last one month birthday.  

However, days like today, where he's absolutely refused to be put down at all, makes that mushy nostalgic mama get a dose of reality that having babies around forever would drive me to the mental ward!

Regardless, he's so stinkin' precious, and I love him so incredibly fiercely.  

Happy One Month Day, Liam!

Its Been A While

Dear Blog,

I'm very sorry I haven't written you in quite a while.  I didn't mean to lose touch with you... I have no excuses other than I've been very busy.  I know its a sad reason to have been MIA for so long, and believe me, I've been feeling so guilty about it.  

The truth is, I think about you all the time.  At least once a week you cross my mind, and a smile crosses my face, but then the self-reproach kicks in and I feel too shamed to reach out to you and say a simple hello because its been so long.  Then more time lapses, the guilt chasm widens, and this terrible cycle that I've trapped myself in seems more and more impossible to escape.  

I guess what I'm trying to say is, will you forgive me?  My distance was not ill-willed - time has slipped past me so quickly and being engrossed in my day-to-day life has lead me to this point with you.  If its ok with you, I'd like for us to catch up; there has been so much going on that I can't wait to share with you!  I miss talking about the little things in life with you, and Alex keeps asking when I'll write you again.  She loves looking over old pictures and reminiscing, and we haven't given her (or anyone who visits for that matter) anything new to read about!

I promise to carve out more time with you from here on forward, even if its just for a quick "hello!"  Since we have so much to catch up on from the past few months years, I'll just make sure when I write to you about things from a while ago, I'll date my letter to the appropriate time frame (for chronology's sake), but notate somehow that I've written the letter long after its official "post date," just so we all know that if I'm lacking in details, its because I'm trying to recall the particulars that may have slipped my mind.

Anywho... I won't keep you any longer for now.  I promise I'll write you again very, very soon!

Earlier today during daycare, I was getting the babies ready for nap time and sitting in the play room, giving one of my babies her bottle.  I moved Arya to the side, out of the way of the play pen that way after I laid the baby down, I could grab her up and lay her down in the other room.  Apparently Arya was trying to tell me something - to me it sounded a little like "I'm hungry too, Mamamama!"

(Isn't she the cutest thing ever??)

Splish Splash!

Arya seems to have learned how to splash water during her bath last night! After watching the video I took, it doesn't nearly reflect just how much water she got all over the place! The entire kitchen floor was drenched! She's a big girl and will be outgrowing her bathtub very, very soon :)

The Most Stimulating Dinner Conversation Ever

Arya is on a roll tonight... I don't know if its the anticipation of Santa Claus, or if she's hopped up on caffeine carried through my milk or what! Regardless, she's stinking hilarious and cute tonight, so here's another video of her, this time enjoying her green beans :)

Blog, Baby, Blog!

So I was sitting here trying to catch up on some posts, and I have a munchkin who insists she has something to say.  She wrote MUCH more than below, but somehow she was able to highlight and delete a crap-ton of narrative.

Presenting, future blogger Arya!

Basting Brushes and Pigtails

With a side of photobombing :P
