Hi There!

Holy Hiatus!

This bloggy break was totally unintentional.  I had every intention to blog during vacation but fun and family time seemed to get in the way.  But, we've been back for 2 weeks and it's still crickets over here.  

All I can say is that the days have been flying by while we've been enjoying the summer.  We've been going to carnivals, the aquarium, on play dates... and that's since we've been home from our marathon vacation (more on that in another post).  

We've also been working on some new skills.  Miss Lilly has taken her first steps!  You won't actually see them in this video but watching her try is downright adorable!

She has also mastered the stairs.  Not one to be left out, Abby was quick to put her in her place proving she is not only the bigger sister but the faster sister (for now anyway)!

Oh, the other skill we've been working on is sleeping.  Such an important skill to have, wouldn't you say?  I am (again) sick and tired of waking up 4 times a night and (after all other techniques failed) am letting her cry it out.  My dr told me that I can let her cry all night if I'm comfortable with that... except my heart could never take that!  Listening to her cry is probably the worst sound I've ever heard.  Dan told me to just shut the monitor off and sleep but I can't do that either.  What if she does REALLY need me?


So, I have resigned myself to the fact that for the next few nights I will sleep even less than normal while listening the my baby cry.  TORTURE!

  2. Blog breaks are necessary. You've got your hands full molding two little munchkins. Hope you get some sleep!

  3. That video is seriously cute! I may need to go watch the videos I took of my daughters' first steps!

    I have found this summer that the longer I go without blogging, the harder it is to start writing again. July was really bad for me, too!

    It sounds like you're having a great summer!
