I'm still alive

It's only been a few days since I posted, but I think it's the longest I've gone between posts since before Evie was born. It has been a challenging few days and I've been busy and exhausted:
  • packing up our stuff and Evie's gear for a week-long trip

  • prepping the house for J's parents to stay for the week (watching the dogs--thanks!!!)

  • our second two-day drive to see my parents in Texas (J has a conference in SA this week and Evie and I are tagging along)--Evie does NOT travel well as a four-month-old. If she had screamed as much when we went for Christmas, we wouldn't have tried to come with J on this trip (especially when a snow storm hit on the morning we left)

  • Evie teething and still not napping

Add limited internet access to the get the picture.

Anyhow, I brought Evie's birthday diaper along with us to Texas, so I'll take pictures tomorrow for her four month update. She doesn't go to the pediatrician until next Tuesday, so I'm bummed that I have to wait until then for an accurate weight check. Speaking of weight, this morning at church, in the nursery, I met a five-month-old baby boy who weighs 24 pounds. I am not kidding. His thighs looked as big around as Evie's waist. I didn't know that was possible!


  1. I am glad that all is well. A 24 lb 5 mo old??? WOW!

  2. You've been busy to say the least! Hope you have a great getaway:)

  3. I live in SA! Are ya'll still here? We should totally meet up!

  4. Ummm....when my oldest was born he weighed 9lbs7oz. I believe he weighed almost thirty pounds by six months. Maybe 27 pounds. It's possible.... and fairly crazy to have a gigantic baby.... :)

  5. just stopping by from sits - i've enjoyed reading a bit of your blog.

  6. That's about the same size as my 17mo old (he's just barely 25lbs) and he's above the 50th percentile on the growth chart for his that 5 month old much be enormous!
    It's good to get the update...I was needing a 'fix.'

  7. +Blonde Duck: sure, we could do lunch, just shoot me an e-mail :)
