A lot has changed in the last couple of months...hence the lack of blogging. And now I'm feeling overwhelmed by the amount of photos and stories I'd like to share and preserve. Here's a very brief run down.
- New job, new work schedule - at the Swedish Cancer Institute. The schedule is A-mazing...I have so much more time for the kids, life feels so balanced.
- New childcare - we had to say good bye to our beloved daycare; but have welcomed into our lives a fantastic nanny (Ivy)
- Bennett has embraced his 2's - therefore we are trying to keep his mind and hands active at all times to try and keep said 2-ness distracted. He goes to preschool twice a week, soccer practice on Fridays, and Ivy takes him on many adventures during the day. He insisted on being Superman for Halloween and flew all around the neighborhood collecting candy. Some of his frequent sayings these days: "Hey guys" "I can't know" "My sister loves me a lot"
- Clara is almost 6 months old and has hit some fun milestones. She can scoot backwards, roll over both ways, get up on all fours (already? yikes!), and just tried rice cereal for the first time. She continues to light up when her brother walks in the room (despite all the torture he puts her through) and is generally a chill, happy baby. Sleep is not ideal, but we'll give her a pass on that one because she's so darn cute.
We just had family photos taken and hopefully he captured on film how much fun we are having with the kids and how much they love each other as siblings already. I feel like time is flying and really do want to enjoy every moment - even the sleepless ones :)
