So I know I promised an update two weeks ago, now I'm finally getting to it. I have been really busy with school. I knew it would be hard, but not THIS hard! Microbiology is kicking my butt. There has been a LOT going on in our household lately.
Dan got laid off this past Monday. Which was a blow to his ego. He's been there for almost two years, had seniority over four people, and HE is the one to get laid off. Our hearts hurt. However, on Wednesday his work called back and offered him a position at their warehouse driving a fork truck. While he takes a pay cut, he is still employed, which is saying more than thousands of other people in the country. We'll just have to scrimp and save as much as possible. I'm going to try to get a job and help out. How I'll do that going to school full time and breastfeeding a baby I don't know, but I'll figure it out!
Lindsey is doing amazingly well. I signed her up for kindergarten on the 16th, and she is very excited. She loves school, so I feel bad about homeschooling her, but it is just so much easier to homeschool at this point in time, not to mention so much cheaper. She's doing well on her reading lessons, and she is so smart. We went to the park yesterday and let her run off some energy. We hate being cooped up in the house during the winter!
Jake is growing so fast! He is 3 months old. When I took him to the doctor at the beginning of the month he was 13 pounds, 5 ounces and I weighed him yesterday and he was 15 pounds. I'm happy that he seems to be growing well. His smile lights up the room and his giggle is one of the most beautiful sounds I have ever heard in my life. He is such a little flirt! He will smile and cock his head to one side, acting all coy. Very sweet. He's also teething, which is not fun. The poor lil man has got some swollen gums, and a tooth trying to poke through. Poor Jake. Poor Mommy's boobs. haha.
I've been sick since Monday. Sinus infection and ear infection, and I'm still pondering going to the doc to get checked for strep. Ewwww kill me now. I'm so uncomfortable that I can't sleep, so that is why I am blogging at 6:20 in the morning.
So my goal is to get a little better about blogging, but please be patient with me and the insanity that is my life :)
