I haven't forgotten you

I feel like a failure of a blogger right now. The past few weeks have been crazy. We were gone for a few days around Christmas, then we had company for a few nights around New Years, they left and the next day we got more company. Two weeks later we are alone as a family and trying to get our girls unspoiled.

Today I haven’t felt like myself and I started thinking, honestly since Caylee was born I haven’t been “normal”. Not that I have ever been normal, but normal for myself. My house hasn’t been as clean as I normally keep it, and I’ve been a lot sleepier, or at least I’ve wanted to lay in bed a lot more. I’m trying to figure out how to do things with two kids. I didn’t think it would be this hard of an adjustment, but truth is Lexi was an easy baby and Caylee is not. Caylee is very high maintenance, even when I’m off of dairy. She fusses a lot, wants to be held all the time, still eats about every 3 hours, and still wakes up several times during the night. Lexi hasn’t quite been her normal easy self lately either, I’m not sure if it’s just her age (she is two…) but she’s been extra whiny.

Over Christmas we took away her beloved Bob, so she’s also adjusting to sleeping without it. We’ve only had a few hard times where she really cried for her pacifier, but the past week or so she’s been waking up a lot at night and not going down easily- for naps or night time. Today was a rough one for nap time, but I am happy to announce that as I type this (9:30pm) both girls are sleeping. Well, Caylee just cried out and Eugene is laying down with her, but they WERE both sleeping…

I made some resolutions this year, one of those was to run a 5K. Well, I found a 10K that is taking place near by in April and I’m hopefully going to be running it. for those of you who aren’t runners a 10K is 6.2 miles. That’s not too bad. I don’t know as though I would ever want to run more than that. I’ve never been much of a runner, but the past two years I’ve really wanted and tried to get into it. Before I got pregnant with Caylee I could run about 2 miles, it was the furthest I’ve ever been able to run. I’m finally almost back to that 2 mile mark and I have 14 weeks from Saturday to train myself to run another 4. I think I can do it. If all else fails I’ll run/walk it, but I think I’ll be able to do it.

I have a ton of pictures that I need to share and post more in detail about Christmas and the past two weeks, but right now just doesn’t seem to be the time. I’ll get back to you on that one…
