Upside down

That's kind of how life is right about now. Seems I just can't stay on top of things, no idea why. Do you ever feel like you're just digging your way out and about halfway through someone throws all the dirt back in and you're right back where you started? I'm not depressed or anything, just having a hard time managing life with two kids and all the jazz that comes along with them. Actually, I'm not having a hard time managing, I'm having a hard time writing about it. We're so busy all the time, blogging always gets bumped to the bottom of the list. We have preschool and playdates and mom's night out and holiday stuff and, and, and... it's all a blast and we are loving each day. I wish I had time to document it :( I haven't scrapped a single picture since I don't know when. I even went so far as to buy some new crafty supplies and there they sit in the bag on my shelf, pushed aside yet again.

Anyway, I'm really trying to make time. Anyone have any ideas how I might be able to do that? I can't even use Oscar as an excuse because he sleeps through the night 7-7 so my evenings are just as free as they were before he was here. The only thing different is the insane amount of laundry to fold and put away at the end of each day. So, any tips or tricks are greatly appreciated! Send them my way, either through comments here, email or a phone call (actually, texts are better since I rarely answer the phone anymore). Thanks!!!

I know, I know... Let me explain: It's been absolutely CRAZY lately, things are finally getting back to some sort of normal. Oscar, shortly after my last blog post, was "diagnosed" with reflux and colic. That right there should explain but there's more. He also came down with the flu which downright sucked but he's much better. Matt and I got sick too, not the flu but we each had a sinus infection and bronchitis and that totally kicked our butts for right about two whole weeks. Oh, and to top it all off we suspected that Oscar has a dairy allergy/issue so we've been trying to get to the bottom of that. All piled up on top of normal life stuff and I was pretty bogged down.

Anyway, let's just start fresh. I can't believe that Oscar is going to be three months old tomorrow. Time is flying, he's getting so big. I am really enjoying it though, he's a pretty cool kid. He is very snuggly and cuddly which does make it hard but what can you do. They are only babies once and it doesn't last long.

We went pumpkin picking this weekend with several of our friends and had a great time. We have a lot of stuff planned for October too, I love Autumn and all that it brings. Here are some pictures of our outing.

Oscar pretty much sleeps through everything when we're out, at home he has to be in his crib in his room with the door shut. Ari can't seem to leave him alone long enough to let him sleep when he's downstairs. Just as well, it gives Ari some one on one time with me and Matt when he's home.

So, I'm finally starting to find my footing it seems. Oscar is sleeping a full twelve hours through the night, has been for several weeks now. That helps, sleep deprivation is a cruel, cruel thing. My house is all decorated for Autumn and Halloween, I have a few finishing touches to add but that will have to wait. I'm going to Hilton Head with my buddy Maria this weekend and cannot wait for the fresh sea air and girl time. Ari is staying home with Daddy, I'm not quite ready to leave O yet but that's just fine. We're going to have a blast.

I'll do better about updating, I promise ;) Sorry it took so long...
