I know … I know … I suck. I can’t blog to save my life recently? I don’t know why. Between working two jobs (one full time and teaching Sunday school), taking/picking E up from day care, getting E ready for day care (it’s amazing the time involved), volunteering with the youth group, going to synagogue, blah, blah, blah, you’d think I’d have tons of time. But alas I don’t. I think of blog ideas …. but then never get around to posting them.
Anyway, while E and D are currently napping I thought I’d take a minute and update how he’s doing (and maybe us in general).
So (forgive me … it’s been so long I can’t remember the last thing I wrote!) life is busy (obviously) but generally pretty good. We’re trying to buy a house (once we find it) and when that’s settled will maybe start trying to have another baby.
E is doing amazing. At his 15 month check up he weighed 20 lbs (he’s small!) and was 29.5 inches tall. I still can’t believe I have such a tiny baby but I’m fine with it! Apparently his gross motor is delayed (D didn’t walk until 18 months so this isn’t a huge surprise) but his fine motor is great and his verbal is advanced! (What do I know!) He can say: mama, dada, Pop-Pop, Bubbie, no, hat, ball, waffle (sort of), and hi. He can sign: blow a kiss, thank you, please, more and milk. He also understands some body parts (where are your: eyes, ears, head, belly button and mouth — mouth is his favorite). D and I are constantly amazed at how wonderful he is.
D is doing really well too. A while ago he started working full time (while he was in grad school/watching E he was working part time) and really loves his new job. I’m glad that he’s happy.
My job is going great. I took on more responsibility and though in some ways it’s overwhelming, it’s also really great to know they trust me so much.
Day care is fairly successful as well for E (or at least as successful as it can be). I still miss him desperately, but I’m glad to know he’s in good hands with people who really enjoy being around him.
Our biggest baby E (I guess I should start calling him Toddler E but I can’t bring myself to do that!) news is that he started walking!
