Well, this attempt at blogging has been as successful as previous attempts it seems. I seem to be too busy living life to document it.
The most exciting news is that we became Aunt, Uncle and cousins to twin boys, Wade Burnett and Graham Littleton on 8/22. They are precious and it is so nice to get to enjoy their infancy without all the worry that you have when they are totally your responsibility. My sister-in-law and brother-in-law are already proving to be wonderful parents. This part (the newborn period) is so hard for any parent, especially first-time parents and then throw in the twin aspect and WOW. They are amazing though!
Now for mine... Since I last posted Noah has started crawling and he is now all over the place too. Sarah starts 1st grade in 3 days and will be getting on the big yellow bus for the first time. She's excited and we are a wreck, but trying to keep it to ourselves for her sake. Benjamin continues to be a climber and is just a complete imp. He is so mischievous, but precious. I can't believe that summer is coming to an end already. Like other parents I am craving the routine that school provides and am hopeful that we will be able to juggle it all. We met 2 of Sarah's classmates at the park this morning and I think that will make her so much more comfortable on the first day.
I have taken on an active role in the RAMOM (Richmond Area Mom's of Multiples) Group. I am really excited about that. It is a time commitment and time is a commodity that I don't have much of, but I think that it's important for me to give back and will give something important to me too. I have made some really fabulous friends through this group and look forward to an exciting future with these women and their families.
I don't know why I can't seem to do this more. I have typed this whole thing while Sarah takes her bath. It really doesn't take that long. I have been really into reading lately so if I am not actively parenting or cleaning up, etc then I am reading. I guess I'll have to read a chapter less and make sure that I do this more often. Thanks for reading.
