And Then There Were Four

We're creating this blog because it's the cool thing to do when people are having a baby. Just kidding, really we already have a hard enough time keeping up with everyone we want to, and our lives are about to get even more wonderfully busy. We can't wait - and we want you guys to be able to share in it too, so we both plan on reporting on it. Read at your own risk, and hopefully you'll enjoy it!

5 Months Old!

Ben is veeeery excited today! Today we can officially announce the impending arrival of his sibling later this year!!!!!

Yeeeeah.....check your calendars today people :) Happy April 1st :)

Yesterday Benjamin hit the 5 month mark! Several times throughout the day I found myself thinking "5 months ago I was doing this....." and reliving his birth. Of course since I was in labor forever (or what seemed like forever), most of the day I was remembering labor, labor, still more labor, botched epidural, more labor, push, push, push, BEN!!! I was looking at his feet and legs as he jumped in his jumper remembering the feeling of him kicking me and kicking me so hard that my water broke. Now he jumps and kicks so hard he can almost break daddy's water when he's on his lap :)

It's hard to believe he's already 5 months old. I can't remember what life was like without him around. It's hard to believe how much he's changed in 5 months. It's hard to believe I haven't slept a full night in 5 months.

Speaking of changes....a new one has developed that we're not too fond of in our household. The "Adios Tigers" incident last week seems to be a new skill that Ben is honing. Today we are on what Brian and I have now labeled "Poop Watch." Turns out it wasn't just the bananas....Ben is just no longer clearing his system it's every 3 days. Too bad he's gone through probably an entire box of wipes, two outfits and a changing table pad in the process of discovering this. So today is day 3...and we are on poop watch. Half joking around, I considered fashioning him an outfit out of a plastic bag that he'll wear until the deed is done. It didn't work because he was too fascinated with the crinkling sound and was trying to eat the bag. My dear friend is coming over to watch him for a few hours today.....and I'm PRAYING that she doesn't have to deal with the mess. She's 39 weeks pregnant and I fear that would send her into labor.

So anyway- we had a sleepless night last night with lots of teething pain. Today we're on poop watch. Today is Maundy Thursday and starts a crazy weekend for me. Unfortunately I found out at the doctor yesterday that I have a sinus infection that has caused an ear infection as well. Crazy in our house right now. More to come!
