We're still here!

Can you believe that between moving, having a baby, and having a toddler I'm just not finding time to post regularly?  It would be a pathetic excuse, except that the times of day when I was used to doing posts I am not one-handed, holding a baby.  Internet surfing = easy.  Typing = hard.

I've been taking and posting pictures somewhat regularly on smugmug, so check there for pics until I get myself back to it!

Nora is beautiful, and thriving.  She is such a good little girl.  She sleeps pretty well (for a newborn) and is mostly content.  She has, unfortunately, developed a preference for me in the last week.  Sigh.  I wish babies would express their preference in extra smiles for mama instead of wails when mama leaves.  T.J. is a tough cookie, though, and has been great about taking on both of the kids while I get out to do some stuff with my new mom's group (a Christmas party AND knitting in the last week!).

Joseph is a phenomenal big brother.  He has never once done anything mean to Nora.  The worst is that he "cries" like her when we change his diaper. :P  He's also developed a bit of an independent streak since Nora arrived and we moved.  He regularly heads up to the playroom on the 3rd floor by himself to play with his cars and trains!  I feel like I'm letting him down a lot, lately - there is so little time to devote to playing with all normal housework/errands plus new house tasks plus Nora.  Instead, I've been focusing on taking him out for a daily walk.  It's good for all three of us, and we all enjoy it and are meeting lots of neighbors this way!  We're going to visit a potential preschool on Thursday (gasp!) and we're planning to enroll him for January.  Yikes.  I have to admit that I'm terrified.

T.J. is working hard, as always, but now he's got a lot more on his plate at home.  Hopefully I'll be in a position to lighten his load at home soon, as Nora gets older and we get more settled in.

So that's it... be patient, I'm sure I'll be back to more regular posting soon!

Jen is alive! I have been anxiously awaiting an update. I love the picture of Nora smiling for the camera. She is so adorable.
