Little sibling quality time.

Bailey and Cooper are great with Brodie. I am probably more laid back this time around seeing how Sean survived and all and they are twice as old as they were when Seaner was born. Cooper just wants to be touching Brodie ALL the time. It drives me a teensy bit crazy because I worry he's going to unintentionally hurt him whilst laying on him, also I hate people touching me all the time (did I really just admit that?) so I'm just looking out for Brodie. Bailey on the other hand plays the role of big sister/little mommy well, always telling me when he is crying and what he clearly needs. She really wanted a little sister, a fact she still reminds me of on occasion with puppy dog eyes and when I see her like this I really want to give in and help her quest for a sister to fulfillment...

3 months already!


We just got a new book at Barnes & Noble, and now we are cuddling up on a rainy afternoon together to enjoy it.

And we'll see how long this lasts

Yesterday, Cooper and Bailey turned four and I realized that soon this blog will be four. I have been a true slacker when it comes to posts and updates and I'm aiming to do much better in 2012. Having thought of that I decided it was time to stop procrastinating and make my New Year's Resolutions (you get until the 6th to decide, right?) So here they are, in no particular order:

1. Keep up with this blog. I aim to be at least as active on this blog as I was in 2009 and 2010, which is only about 3 posts a month.

2. Get organized. I mean this one. I mean I mean all of these, but this is the one I NEED to mean. I feel like there is stuff, stuff everywhere and it's causing this choking sensation in my throat and anxiety at bedtime when I think of all the corners and mounds and pounds of things to go through. I feel sick being this unorganized. I plan on getting organized, doing each room at a time. Finding a home for everything even if it means finding a new home for it. Like at Goodwill or the Landfill. And to aim to bring nothing home unless I know where I will store it.

3. Be consistent. With everything. With putting things away. With a cleaning routine. With discipline and rules with the children. With my running. I am terrible about starting something and before it becomes routine enough I stop.

I also have a few running goals and resolutions, which you can read about here.
