Hey!  Remember me?

I haven't been around much.  Would you like to know why?

Because life is CRAZY.

...I typed "cray" on accident, but I don't like that word.  So I changed it to "crazy."

Gibson has been sick.  Constantly.  Literally.  He has had ear infections like crazy, hand foot and mouth disease, and now he has some sort of nasty cold with a lovely cough.

And when Gibson is sick, he's truly awful.  I mean, he's really sweet and cute sometimes, but the smallest things set him off and he screams and shrieks and flails and it's horrible.  Netflix has been our friend for the last month or so.

So my life has been nuts.  Also cray.  So let me update you on some things that are going on, okay?

Gibson is getting tubes put in on Thursday!  Praise the Lord!  I'm hoping that this will be the start to a happier, healthier Gibson.

The baby inside of me is moving a lot, and is super healthy!  I think it's a girl.  I could be wrong.

The baby inside of me is also causing me to never sleep, at all.  Because of peeing.  And also nightmares.  And also hunger.  I'm tired.  So tired.

Gibson has been waking up at 5:30 or earlier most days this week.  Daylight savings is Saturday.  Which means that on Sunday, he'll wake up at 4:30 if we can't get him to start sleeping later.

...no thank you.  I hate daylight savings.

I ordered a Gro Clock this morning to hopefully help with the early waking.  But it's coming from the UK, so it won't be here before this weekend.  And I didn't especially want to pay crazy amounts of money to get it here faster.  Oh well.

We had the air conditioning on yesterday.  And it's almost Halloween.  WHAT IS THIS WEATHER?

Speaking of Halloween, we're being scrooges and doing nothing this year.  No costume for Gibson (although he might be a lumberjack, because we found a cute flannel shirt!), no trick-or-treating, no decorations.  It just seems like too much work, and Gibson wouldn't even like it.  And he won't get to eat candy because: A) I'm mean, and B) He doesn't eat anything that isn't pancakes or crackers.

In that vein, Gibson's pickiness is at an all-time high.  He consistently eats oatmeal, pancakes, crackers, Kix cereal, and not much else.  Sometimes he eats french toast or pizza.  Mealtime is frustrating.

Gibson gets hurt a lot these days.  He currently has a large bruise on his cheek (falling down the stairs), a cut on his forehead (tripping into a wall), and an owie on his lip (running into my knee mouth first).

Also he has athlete's foot.  Fun.

In the past week Gibson and I have gone to the doctor's office three times to see his pediatrician, a podiatrist, and the ENT.  And he was a DREAM at all of those offices...I've learned that having a big bag of Kix and his stroller is a massive help.  He didn't even cry at the ENT's office.  AT ALL.  Even when they looked in his ears!

Gibson has so many new words!  Recent words include heart, star, kitty (he LOVES Hello Kitty), Woody (Toy Story), bottle, soap, egg (he was playing with eggshells!  Fun!), cereal, house, show, and rock.  Also he tries to jump (by bending his knees and then straightening) and follows lots of directions!

Also he plays pretend!  Yesterday he pretended to put something in Danny's hand, then picked it back up.  He pretends to pour milk when there's an empty carton, pretends to feed us by shoving a spoon down our throats (gag), and pretends to drink things out of empty cups.

And he draws things!  He loves to draw Danny and Ellie and then point and tell me about them.  He also draws hearts and stars, and identifies them when I draw them.  But his favorite is when I draw Hello Kitty...he yells "KITTY!  KITTY!" and then draws on her face and tells me about it.

Gibson is apparently getting taller, and can now reach things on the counter in the kitchen.  Which is how he got eggshells to play with.  Oops!

There are lovely crayon drawings all over our house.  Gibson is usually pretty good about coloring on his paper, but sometimes he feels the need to express his creativity on the wall by the front door and we don't catch him.  Oh well.  It's nothing a magic eraser or paint can't fix!

Ummmm.  I think that's it.  Who knows.  Gibson changes on a near daily basis...it's hard for me to even keep up with him!

Please forgive me for being gone so much...I can't promise that I'll be around a lot, but know that I think of you all daily!

Also, tune in later this week for a giveaway!!  YAY!
