I'm still out here

Things are going well. The boys and I still have a cough. Liam still seems congested though. I know this lasted all month, ugh! But I know they are OK.

Work is crazy. I'm totally swamped at work and trying to make sure I'm doing everything I need to do a good job. Then it's getting Phoebe to afterschool activities on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, running errands on the weekends, trying to keep up with housework, laundry and bills. Oh and don't forget setting up appointments for a swine flu shot for Phoebe next Wednesday and the boys 6-month check the beginning of December. They'll get the seasonal flu shot then, but not H1N1.

And Tommy must be having a growth spurt. He slept awful the last two nights and last night at 2AM, I decided to just feed him again and it worked! He had a 6 oz bottle at 2AM and slept until 6AM.

They are both so cute and I love having them. I just haven't been blogging or reading blogs for awhile as when I'm not doing my 2 full-time jobs (work and mom/wife) and have some downtime, I want to read Sookie Stackhouse books and then fall asleep 5 minutes into it. Even all that action can't keep me awake sometimes.

I'll try to get some new pics posted. They are getting bigger and bigger. We bought them some new clothes for daytime as they were outgrowing everything. They are now both wearing 9 month clothes. Liam does seem to need the arm and leg length even though Tommy is 3 lbs heavier than him, LOL!

And Phoebe's doing great too! It's nice we can joke in our house. The other day we came in from errands and took Liam out of his car seat and started feeding him dinner, as he was awake and Tommy was asleep in his car seat. About 10 minutes later Tommy woke up crying that he was still in his car seat and I joked while Phoebe was watching TV (when she usually can't hear a thing I say), "Oh look, Tommy thought he was the forgotten child. Little does he know, that's Phoebe." Phoebe immediately pokes her head up from the couch and says "Hey!" and we all start laughing. She knew I just wanted to see if she really hears what I say when she's watching TV. Love that girl! She's very proud as her art teacher selected one of her art pieces to be in the school district's Art Show at the high school in the spring. She really has a natural artistic talent. I need to make sure she gets to use that.

Phoebe is very cute! And talented :) Yes, you must nurture her artistic talent.

Can't wait to see pics of the boys too!
