Quick update

So here's a quick update on what's going on with us.

Brett is doing well in school. He has four classes this semester, and we're working on signing him up for next semester. It sounds corny, but I'm so proud of him! I know it's tough to juggle work and school, and now he has even more responsibility at home. He does well, and even manages to give me a break when he gets home. (A good thing, since I'm sure he would like to have a sane wife.)

Amy continues to grow. She has a checkup at the end of the month, so we'll see just how much bigger she's gotten. I'm guessing she's grown at least a couple of inches, and she's definitely getting heavier. Not chubby by a long shot, but she's filling out! Fortunately our pediatrician knows Brett, so he's not worried by her long and skinny frame.

I'm still adapting to life as a stay-at-home mom. It seems like every time Amy and I get a good schedule going, she decides it's time to change it up. Definitely keeps me on my toes! By and large, she's really a good, mellow baby. But she has her days. Like yesterday. She was so crabby and unhappy all day, and just cried most of the time. Of course, it was only AFTER Brett got home that we figured out she probably had gas all day. She felt better after a little bit, and didn't scream anymore. Again, good for my sanity.

I'm trying to figure out now what I want to do with my time, once I've really got a handle on the whole baby thing. Granted, I think I do fairly well now, but I'm definitely still figuring things out. I've already offered to volunteer for the Burns Recovered Support Group, so that will give me something to do. I keep thinking about taking up something like crocheting, but...that just isn't really me.

I need a hobby.

  1. I was so the same way about Dustin when he was at school. That's why I cried so hard when he graduated I was just so proud, maybe a little bit of hormones too.
