Last week my Grandparents came up to celebrate my grandpa's birthday. We had a great evening and got to spend some time together. The next morning my mom was trying to make a PB & J sandwich for Lydia (her fav) and Lydia was repeating over and over that she wanted to spread the jelly...she talks so much that my mom had tuned her out. She finally pushed a stool up to the counter and stood up and yelled, "I'm losing my mind!". Whoops. That got everyone's attention!

I know some of you have been wondering where I am and why I have not been keeping up with my blog...contrary to popular belief (Chad) I AM actually busy. ;-) I am posting a little clip of what a lot of the day looks like....

I have noticed the babies both really starting to move...roll and scoot to get to where they want to be. It is fun to watch. They will probably be crawling any time now! Mitchell really started babbling a lot yesterday. We took Lydia to the Childrens Museum and the babies really enjoyed looking around! Fun day!
So it is finally starting to get to me....I have been struggling to get Lydia to eat for quite awhile now. I have taken the approach that is recommended by our doctor and not made a big deal out of it so that it doesn't become a power struggle. I am finally at my breaking point. Most people say things like..."_____ will only eat ______." I can't even say that. It seems like everything that she likes or has previously liked, now is not working. I don't want to make multiple meals and haven't, unless we are having something that I know she absolutely will not eat. Yesterday she told me her spaghetti was "scary". AHHHH... It is getting scary to me when I know that she has eaten about 300 calories all week! I know others have to have problems with this....any suggestions?

I had a little laugh to myself today. We went out for dinner and every gas station we passed Lydia reminded Tim and I that we needed to "stop and get some gas in the car". I remember that when I was driving back and forth to work every day I never looked at the gas gauge...it seemed that inevitably I would end up all the way out at AEGON and my gas light would be on. I would never know how long I had been driving before I actually noticed it. Really wouldn't be a big deal except for at that time there were no gas stations close. It was always a little nerve wracking to drive home. So I am grateful that she will fill in for my short fall in that area!
The first week that we were all home together I tried to still do a few things that were Lydia's school routine and one of them was "Water Day". We did have fun...Kobe had to fill in for Londyn, Peyton, Reese, Lincoln and Shreya. I think he did an OK job. ;-) She had a lot of fun. I remember her yelling out, "I'm crazy in the water with my friends!". I almost cried, because she was alone...Londy just lives around the corner so we still get to see her quite a bit.
