Short and Simple

Weekly Happenings: This blog post is being written a little later in the day than I normally do because when I went to write it earlier, I discovered that someone accessed my blog and did all sorts of nonsense (a post telling me that I’d been hacked, random links for medication inserted into different posts, etc.). I was irate and worried, trying to figure out how on Earth we were going to fix it (thinking about editing each post to remove the links just hurt my brain). Luckily, Paul had backed it up fairly recently, so with some work, he was able to restore everything. Yeesh. Some people irritate me…at any rate, here’s my blog post for the week. This past week was relatively laid back. We didn’t really do anything out of the ordinary. I’m okay with that, since I’m still trying to find my groove with handling two kids during the day (Paul is a huge help in the evenings and overnight).

The Weekly Weather: Hot! For February, that is. There have been days where it’s been over 80 degrees, even. Though, we did have one or two random cooler days (in the 50s and 60s) thrown in (it wouldn’t be Texas if we didn’t, ha).

What Paul’s Been Up To: He’s been busy with his regular stuff. He also has helped Joseph get some practice in with his new bike. Oh, and he’s started on a small home improvement project: making a can sorter for all the canned goods we have in the pantry which makes it easier for us to cycle through the cans (we like to keep a lot on hand for food storage purposes, but we don’t want them going bad, so we make sure to cycle them through). I’ll post pictures of it when he’s all done. 🙂

What Sarah’s Been Up To: Mainly shuttling both kids around, getting stuff done during the week. I had forgotten how exhausting the “newborn” stage is. Luckily, I have a great support system. As I mentioned before, Paul has been a huge help and so has Joseph (he willingly is on “binky patrol”, which means making sure Abigail has her binky if she’s upset in the car or swing and he also throws away dirty diapers without complaint).

What Joseph’s Been Up To: School, homework, and playing around the house (and doting on his baby sister). He enjoys practicing riding his bike riding and having PokĂ©mon battles with Paul.

What Abigail’s Been Up To: She’s starting to coo a little bit here and there. She’s also started fighting sleep during parts of the day. Luckily she isn’t at the point where she makes herself overtired and crazy cranky. She’s a pretty chill baby, actually.

This Week in Pictures: I’ve found that my phone doesn’t get pulled out as often to snap pictures, haha. I did get a few, though (and Paul got a great one of Joseph on his bike).

There was a bit of a learning curve for him to figure out the pedal brakes, but he’s doing great!
All ready for church!
An example of her fighting the sleeps…she’ll fight getting the binky in her mouth at times, even. It’s almost as if she knows that sucking on the binky is what normally helps her fall asleep.
Checking out the stuff on the activity mat. She’s getting more alert each and every day.
