Quick update – I’ll try to catch up more later:
Baby Elianah arrived on Saturday weighing 7 lb 7oz. I guess she and her mom are doing well. We haven’t heard anything from anyone except seen a couple facebook reports along with the rest of the facebook world, so unfortunately I don’t know anything more. No idea on when she was born or her length or when they went home, etc. I have seen a couple pictures and she’s really precious. Is it possible to get baby fever when I have my own sweet baby? Maybe it’s baby fever for a newborn. I do not miss those sleepless nights though!
I really dislike facebook sometimes. It’s fantastic for staying in touch with people you normally wouldn’t. But it shouldn’t replace keeping in touch – in real touch – with family & friends. Not the kind of “keeping in touch” where every old acquaintance hears your latest important news, yet family/close friends don’t because they aren’t on facebook 24/7 (or in my case, even every day! Oh heaven forbid!) It does though. I hate finding out days after the fact, that a close friend has been dealing with something that I would have wanted to encourage them and pray for them, yet I was clueless about because I didn’t check facebook.
It’s really annoying and frustrating sometimes.
I am tired and grumpy. (Notice that?) Joshua is getting his 2nd tooth in and he’s been a bear the past few days. Why couldn’t both those bottom teeth come in at the same time like the other kids? They have to each take a miserable week and do it separately. So he is super cranky and I am tired and stressed out. I think he’s also caught a minor cold from the church nursery and so that isn’t helping either.
The weather has been awful. They predicted “monster blizzards” coming this way. Well we had a nice mix yesterday, enough that it really wasn’t safe or wise to get out (and see friends as we had really hoped to) and then today that “monster” is just icky drizzing rain. I am thankful to have a week to stay in and get my house cleaned and get caught up on some organizing projects, but I’m also frustrated because I haven’t gotten nearly as much done as I’d like to because of my cranky little guy. And I’m missing my friends.
I’ll try to post more later – a more cheerful post! – and add some new pictures!
