Tap, tap... hello?

So, yeah. It's been quite some time, huh? Before I get into anything else a quick update.

Lily is FIVE years old. Isn't that completely insane? I feel like I'm missing everything - I am definitely nostalgic for the present. She starts school in Kindergarten. She is smart, and strong, and healthy. She is also WAY too much like me (a mix of, perfectionism, smarts, moodiness and stubbornness). It's really uncanny.

Lucy is... oh my god. She is hysterical and smart and adorable - this kid lights up a room. She is a natural performaer and will do anything for a laugh. I honestly believe she should be a child actor. If you know any agents, DO NOT TELL ME ABOUT IT.

Brooklyn just turned four this weekend. We had a luau themed pool party for her birthday which was so fun. She is beautiful and persistent and she has come SO FAR. Tonight we had a girls night (PB is out of town and the the other three are with my parents / sister). So much fun. This girl really is cut out to be an only child. Poor thing ended up here instead.

B.B. is still with us. He JUST started walking at 19 MONTHS OLD. Part of it is definitely behavioral - he has three little mommas who are willing to bring him / take him anywhere he wants to go. But I'm a little concerned - the kids got fine motor skills like you would not believe and socially he's off the charts. Help Me Grow is on the case now though.

Speaking of cases... his has been so crazy. So originally Mom visited really regularly. She had an adorable little room set up for him, but she moves a lot. At this point she's only seen him once in the past couple of months. I'm also sad to report that she's pregnant again... I fail to see how she will be able to get things together with another baby if she hasn't made any progress in the past year without that extra work. I'm so torn on this one - she is SUPER great with him... when she shows up. BB himself is a fantastically charming baby. The kind who makes you think you could have 10 more. But in reality, I'm just hoping they don't ask us to take ONE more.

So that's the news that's fit to print. If you're out there still, leave me a comment and let me know how you've been. I've missed blogging. Maybe I'll try to get here more often. But I can't promise anything :)
