Vacation Part One

Our little family vacation earlier this summer. It was simple, but it was a blast!We stayed in the Marriott where Luci slept in her own queen sized bed surrounded by pillows. We ate out. We went hiking. We went swimming. We were together. It was great.

These Two

Oh, lately I've just been feeling a little frazzled. Okay, a lot frazzled. My little kiddos have been sucking the life out of of them literally right... Elijah wakes up 3 times a night, he's getting teeth, he actually wants to be held where he used to be so content, he wants to eat real people food, he gets mad at his toys when they won't come to him. Luci wants to be held because Elijah is getting held, "you're my mommy too, I need some attention." She always has to go potty as soon as I say I need to go, she wants all her food 'on the side' everything separated, she needs me to sit next to her to watch her shows. She's constantly thinking of things she needs..."but mommy, I need...I need...I need...I need something!" It makes me so frustrated! But then when I sit down to rock Eli and massage his swollen little gums I really just wish I could do it forever. When I finally lay down on the couch so Luci can listen to my heart, give me shots, take my blood pressure, and tell me to be brave becuase, "this is just going to hurt for a second mommy" I wish I would have done it sooner. Everything that comes out of her mouth is so cute when I take the time to listen. She loves to fix Jacob's broken heart. He tells her that his heart breaks when he has to leave in the mornings because he will miss her so much. So, Luci tells him to sit down and do a puzzle with her because that always fixes broken hearts "it will make you feel better daddy".

disclaimer: my kids are really, really good kids by the way, I'm just a crazy mom sometimes...lack of sleep can probably sum that up, well mostly...

Luci tells me all the time that we are moving to a new house. A new house in California. She wonders if Maddie is back at her house yet. She asks, "mommy, where's Texas?" We miss our friends...
