My blog has been boring and lonely lately. I haven’t had time to post about all the normal, but fun or silly, things that we’ve done lately. I’ve been reading all of your blogs and posting comments when I can (i.e. when there’s no baby on my lap or a breast pump attached to me, meaning both hands are free for typing), but I haven’t been posting much of my own. I’m also trying to get some other stuff done online – creating photo books, uploading photos, buying football tickets, booking hotel rooms…and not much of that is getting done either. Not to mention I have a HUGE stack of books I want to get on half.com or some other similar site. Ugh! And my sleep is too important to me to stay up late working on all this. Add that to a relatively new job where I don’t have time (or feel comfortable enough) to tackle some of this from there. How do you guys all do it???
Anyway, a quick update on our family. Lil Major is as cute as ever. He’s a pro at sitting up by himself now, rolling all over the place, and rocking on all fours. I’m just waiting for the day he takes off across the floor in a crawling frenzy...I know it’s coming soon! He loves real food, and so far we’ve tried bananas, mango, carrots, sweet potato, and broccoli. The Colonel is mad that I am making the boy eat broccoli, but he can just deal with it...the kid seems to like it. So far, I’ve made all his food myself, and I’m really enjoying that. I hope I can keep it up. The freezer is full of enough to last us for a while.
I’m in the middle of planning our 8-year anniversary trip to KC. We’ll take in a game, stay in a new hotel, and argue about which of our favorite restaurants to eat at. Hopefully the weather will be great, and all 3 of us will enjoy it. Yes, we’re taking the boy. I want him to experience his first game at Arrowhead – even if we’ll probably lose, and he won’t remember it anyway.
I’ve also had a couple get togethers lately – y’know, those parties where girls eat junk food and shop. Both have been fun, and I even started a little holiday shopping. I love to host things at my house, and I haven’t done much of that lately.
My babysitter, aka Mom, is getting ready to head to The Seester’s house for a while, so starting next week I’ll have to shuffle the kid around to my “back-ups”. Should all work out fine, though.
Oh, update on the insurance ordeal – I finally got someone competent on the phone yesterday, and she told me that I can request a rate review after I start nursing and everything (hopefully) gets back to normal. The idiot I first talked to said I’d have to wait 2 years. So, I accepted the policy, and we’ll see how things go in the coming months. Thanks for all your comments on that!
