Ay-yi-yi, my life is so weird. I feel so busy every day, like I never have a second to sit down and relax, and yet, when evening comes and I collapse into bed, I feel I've accomplished approximately nothing.

Our old house finally closed last week. It took one whole extra month from the date in our sales contract, which sucks out loud, and it was all because our buyer changed lenders and didn't tell anyone. &#^*#^$!!!!!!

We are in the process of gathering up all the required paperwork for our new house purchase so we can hopefully close on that by the end of the month. I am so not looking forward to the work of moving in to a new house, but I am looking forward to being in our own home again.

The wee lad is doing better every day. He is on the cusp of crawling, needs a haircut really badly, weighs in at 17 lbs, 11.5 oz, and is a whopping 29" long. A tall drink of water to be sure. Tall and skinny runs in the family, so I guess that's ok.

Just when I am getting really down about his eating ablities, he surprises me. Today he picked up and fed himself at least 6 cheerios without choking on any. Gummed them apart and swallowed them all...I didn't have to reach in and snag a single cheerio from the back of his throat. You don't know what a miraculous accomplishment this is. He also willingly ate (i.e. opened his mouth for) several mouthfuls of baby oatmeal. Again, miraculous. Of course, tomorrow he will probably lock his little mouth shut and refuse everything. *sigh* It's an emotional roller-coaster around here. I am doing my best.

That's it, really. Just knitting in whatever free time I can scrounge. Taking care of kids. Doing laundry, washing dishes, etc. Normal life stuff. Boring.

Normal life boring stuff would be nice. Revel in it :)

Sounds like you're doing a great job with your "boring", though! I know what you mean about feeling busy every second of the day but still feeling like nothing gets really done. I'm hoping summer will help me care less about getting stuff done.

Hey, Kate! I'm not online much anymore, so am reading weeks late, but wanted to say congrats on the steps forward with AJ's eating and growth!! Meg finally starting accepting spoon feeding about a week ago when a friend gave me a jar of plums and apples baby food. It was incredible. She downed it all. I love break throughs. She's all about finger foods mostly, and I'm pretty good with that, but it's nice to know she WILL eat from a spoon if I want to grind up our dinner to feed her or something.

I'll stop rambling now. Good luck finalizing everything on and settling into your new home!
