Updates and Such.

I'm finding it harder and harder to post these days, so a list of what's been happening will have to do.

*Brett went back to work yesterday which meant it was my first day with the boys all alone. Jacob cried a lot and Ethan only had one meltdown, so it was a pretty good day. I was able to get some laundry done and cook dinner. I felt triumphant. 

*I've decided that I am not much of an infant person. Now this doesn't mean that I don't love my child, it just means that I want him to be a little bigger. I'm looking forward to him holding his head up, sleeping more through the night, crying less and not having to be held almost all the time. 

*Since Jacob likes to cry a bunch and I can't give Ethan attention all the live long day, he has been watching more TV than I would like. This TV watching trend will not go on for long, or so I hope, but at this point in time I don't care. It makes me not go crazy. 

*Hallelujah for baby carriers! I have two right now that Jacob loves, the Moby Wrap and Baby Bjorn. Without these two ingenious contraptions Jacob would not be content and my arms would fall off. I want to run up to the makers of said items in slow motion and longingly hold them. They have saved my life.

*I am utterly obsessed with Glee. If you do not watch, exit this screen right now, find some episodes on Hulu or YouTube, or run out and buy season one. This show is the greatest. I was a little late in jumping on the Glee wagon but I am almost caught up to season two. Ms. Brittney Spears is on tonight and I can't wait to watch. 

*I plan on getting out of the house a couple times this week, kids in tow. I've gone to the mall once with both of them and it wasn't a disaster. I have to admit that my mom and sister were there too so I wasn't completely alone, and I probably won't be this week either. I'll admit that I'm still a bit nervous to take them out by myself, but I know the day will come, and it will probably be to Target. 

*I miss going out on dates with Brett. We've had one since Jacob has been born and I'm hoping we have another this weekend. It's funny to think that we literally used to go out like five times a week. Oh those were the good old days. But what a waste of cash!

That's all for now...off to fold laundry. Exciting, I know.
