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!

Post-Vacation Blues

Coming back from vacation is always a drag. There's that initial "oh it's nice to be home again" then BAM.....blues. When on vacation, one tends to forget that work is piling up and isn't going to get any easier while you are gone, the house isn't getting any cleaner, life isn't always as exciting as it is with lots of other people around. I'd say it's a fair statement that everyone in our house has post-vacation blues except for the dog who is happy to have us home again.

The bluest in the house is actually Ben. Even though it was exhausting to travel and go from place to place, I think he was energized and enjoyed having so many other people around. Yesterday he was bored out of his mind with just mommy around for entertainment. He's acting up (as much as an 8 month old can act up) and is just generally displeased with the ho hum of everyday life. He misses having 3.5 year old Makenna and 16 month old Levi playing with him (no....the solution is not that Ben needs siblings right now). He keeps trying to engage Brina, but she lazily stares at him and refuses to participate.

Here's to hoping for a weekend that gets us all back to reality. In the meantime....more pictures from vacation!
