I Got Nothing Except a Compulsion to Post

My brain hurts. I am exhausted and have the busiest four weekends ahead of me that I've ever had (I think). Thankfully it's busy with things I want to do, but busy still. Count it: three baby showers, two little kid birthday parties, one craft night at my house, two babysitters' club nights, and one pug group. See? Fun but busy. And of course, I have this compulsion to make gifts instead of buy them. (But if I'm honest, I'm not sure it will happen for all of them.)

In addition to these things, today we're getting a new front door installed, so we're banished from our house. Also, there is a preschool open house I want to attend for Rhett. Can we just take a second to freak out now, please? I have a (nearly) preschooler! A kid that goes to preschool! I have one of those! Yep, tired.

In other news, we're going to start giving solid foods to little Ollie soon. The high chair was brought down from the attic and I'm re-researching solids as I forgot everything from when we did this with Rhett. How long did everyone do some sort of cereal before going to the real stuff?

My return to work was pretty easy. Since Chuck does all of the pick-ups and drop-offs, I don't have to have emotional breakdowns that they would cause me. Both boys are doing great there, and Ollie is napping like a champ, which is always a worry for me.

I bought a new workout video. I get tired of being able to word-for-word repeat what Jillian is telling me and I want to mix it up. So we'll see what Lindsay Brin has to do for me and my post-pregnancy body.

Okay. That's all. Goodbye.

But I always have pictures of super cute boys.


  1. life sounds good - definitely busy, but good.

    thanks for the pictures of the boys. awesome.

  2. The does sound busy! Email me and tell me what preschool you are enrolling Rhett in!

  3. We didn't do the cereal at all and went straight for bananas, lentils & rice, and applesauce (not all three at once but in approx that order ever 4 days). Saha took to it amazingly well and now she'll try most things if we all eat a bite together. Butternut squash is also good.

    I was IN LOVE with my pressure cooker the first 6 months or so after Saha started eating solids. I did squash, carrots, apples, pears, etc and they were small pieces that she could practice picking up herself but that were still really soft.
