I haven't been able to blog in such a long time. My work situation recently changed in two ways. 1) Helen, my assistant, quit working for us. :( I completely understand, but she is already missed. So that means I am back to working 5 days a week. 2) My brother is now my boss!! I loved working for my dad (and he's still here, but strictly a salesman now), but things are much more fast-paced with Steve. I love it!
The kids have been pretty good. Andrew is cutting teeth right now, so he was home from daycare with a fever for the last two days. It's weird. He is cutting his upper canine teeth. Poor baby! I think he's finally feeling better since one broke through the gums. He is still trying to crawl, and he is eating up those solid foods! He really likes the butternut squash and bananas. He also tried sweet peas last night, but once he saw the milk wagon, he was not into eating them at all! He is sitting up so well these days, too! He has also learned what the remote control is. Whenever he sees one, he launches himself towards it. He now has his own to chew on.
And my sweet Jacob has been particularly cute lately. Yesterday was the first day he asked, "Why?" when I asked him to do something. It took me by surprise, and I hope he flies through this phase. I just don't know if I could handle it long term. Last night he told me, "Mommy, go away" when I was hanging around to see if he needed help on the potty. On the way home from school he informed me that, "Daddy stay home with Andrew. Andrew go to doctor office. Get shot. Andrew feeling better." That's a pretty good little thought process for the little guy! I said nothing about the doctor, but he did hear me tell the teachers at school that Andrew was feeling better. I think Jacob has missed his Mommy time in the last couple of months. I've been making more of an effort to spend some one on one time with him, and he seems to have a better attitude overall.
I swear that pictures and videos are coming! I feel better just telling some stories about the kids for now.
