It's "Only" Taken Six Months to Get Back to This Blog....

The title pretty much sums up how crazy life has been.

I mean, I have been BUSY. Really busy. And then when I am not busy I am sleeping or trying to regain my sanity via alcohol or funny sitcoms (see: The Modern Family) John and I have been spending the last six months saying how life is a mere modification when you have your first child but with the second....well that is life changing. No Joke, yo.

Anyway, the last six months have been some of the best yet trying moments of my life. The newest member of the family is sweet and cuddly and everything I ever wanted in a cat but never had. I spend so many moments of my day grasping on to each and every precious sweet baby thing that he does because I know that this time is fleeting and yet life is happening and I need remind myself constantly to stop and smell the roses. The first 3 months were very difficult. Mainly because I went from very structured well thought out planned days to oh holy god crazy nonsense madness days. And it was everyday for the past six months. And well, let's just say I don't do well in these circustances.

However this is still my life and I am dealing much better than before. I am learning to embrass the madness and even - gasp - sometimes enjoy it. The great part is that everyday is a surprise. I wake up and I never know what to expect. Happy children. Laughter. Smiles. Hugs and Kisses. Surprise! Or simetimes, sad children. Crying. Screaming. Throwing (or most often a combo of the two). Surprises also come in the form of Finn saying his first sentence or expressing himself in a way he never has before or the day Elliott broke his first tooth or sat up unassisted for the first time.

I am so lucky that I have had a front row seat for all the madness and craziness that is my life.
