Sleeping Beauty

2013 has been quite the year for our family. I don't really mean "a great year" or "a bad year", more like a fast year and an exhausting one (see photo above ^^^). It's been flying by and suddenly I have a toddler, a brilliant 7 year old who corrects my math and a chatty 5 year old who manages to get everything he wants, even though I swear I told him no, he's able to convince me that I didn't. Argh.

Jason left for the first two months of the year to a very intense training for work and I learned how much admiration I have for single/military moms. WOW! I'm still catching up on sleep. The best therapy I've found has been sewing. Even though I'm exhausted and sleep sounds like such a wonderful idea, all I want to do is sew all day and all night and drink Diet Coke. :)

On that note (or would it be off that note?), Remi is now 20 months, well on her way to 2 years! She is walking like a champ, as bossy as ever, loves, loves, loves shoes, and hates hair bows. Of course. I love having a little girl in the house and her brothers are so good to her. She is even more so a daddy's girl now than ever (see photo above^^^). She will pass me up for a good snuggle with daddy any time of the day or night. Luckily, I still have my snuggly boys for a few more years (fingers crossed).

We are gearing up for a double dose of tubes in both Remi and Sawyer's ears next month and then our Shriners visit in May. After a total of 10 ear infections this winter, we decided that tubes would be the most effective way to handle this situation. Pray for us!

So all in all, life is good. Kids are good. Husband is home and good. Work is good. I think it's going to be a really great year...and busy...yep, busy. Happy Spring Break!

Hello Tiffany,

Your little one is adorable the way she is cuddled up with her Daddy.

When our girls were 10 and 7... after a year of them trading ear infections back and forth and all of us being exhausted, our doctor finally recommended they have tubes inserted and their adenoids removed. I can't speak to other people's experiences but it was the best thing we could have done for them. From several ear infections a year to none was amazing both for them and for our family. They had to wear ear plugs when we went swimming but other than that... to finally have happy, smiling, healthy girls after years and years of repeated ear infections was as I say amazing.

That photo is too precious! We've got a daddy's girl over here, too. Luckily, her big brother still loves to snuggle with his mama. Hard to believe it's already April, isn't it?
