Wow - it looks like I am the first one here this week!
I have heard that many schools are starting back up this week. Anyone have older kids already back in school? It is hard to believe that summer is already coming to an end. What is everyone doing for the end of the season?
I mostly wanted to say that I am still around. I have been reading the posts but mostly with my phone and haven't had time to respond. I was expecting Mari to be hungry 45 minutes ago so I am currently just waiting for her to wake up.
Angie is officially napping once a day now so I am getting used to the new schedule with her. Basically I try to keep her busy all morning (we went to the park today) and give her lunch at 11:30 and she is in bed by 12:30 at the latest. As long as nothing bothers her she can sleep until 3pm. Yesterday was the first time in a really long time that we went out in the afternoon/early evening - it was strange
In other news, our house is coming along very well. The siding went up last week so from the outside the house looks complete. The plumbing, wiring and HVAC will be inspected tomorrow and then they can start on the insulation and drywall inside. It is pretty amazing that we are actually keeping a decent schedule and still expect to be in our home in time for Thanksgiving.
Marissa is also doing great. It has been about 3 weeks now that she has been sleeping through the night and she is now consistently doing 10-12 hours per night. She is a full fledged thumb sucker so in the mornings I will hear her stir and then start slopping away with her thumb in her mouth but she doesn't cry for me to get her right away. She is a lot like Angie in that matter (except Angie didn't suck her thumb). Angie is still doing really well with the baby but is learning how to throw tantrums when she doesn't get her way or is told not to do something. It is amazing to see the different stages they go through, from Mari being a baby, where Angie was a year ago, to Angie turning into a toddler - by the way, she may be a toddler but she still doesn't toddle. She started climbing today (got herself on top of a storage bin) but she won't walk, not even a couple of steps yet.
That is all from me for now. I will try to catch up on everyone else's comments sometime this week. Enjoy the end of summer.
