Long time, no write

I know I know. I've been slacking off on here. I have been peeking in every so often. Meaning to write something, anything. But then I end up staring at the screen and catch myself right before I start drooling on the keyboard.

Life here is busy. We got our orders, which means it's 100% official that we are moving. In 3 months. Which makes me freak out in all kinds of ways. We even plan to buy our first house. We are in a really good place financially, and if there ever was a time to buy a house, it's now. But of course, that makes things all kinds of scary as well.

Also, the terrible two's are hitting early with Hannah. As in, they kicked in last week, right as she turned 18 months old. (can you believe she's that old?!) She's always been a bit willful and spirited. (understatement of the YEAR) But this past week she decided to kick it up a notch. She screams for fun, hits, bangs her head on the wall when she's mad, and gets furious when any of the other kids are getting my attention. She's also just as big a climber as Lindsay, if not more so. Which is really saying something. Since she's our last, it seems we're going out with a bang. Yay for us.

So all of that fun leaves not much time for blogging. I want to get back into the habit of it though, and I know writing begets writing. So, I'll try to write something every day. Even if it's small and pointless. It won't be Shakespeare, but I promise to write something.

I've missed you!

For your patience, a Hannah pic. (don't be fooled by that innocent look though)

What a cutie. Those are some killer eyes on Princess Hannah. And I thought I knew what everyone was talking about when they discussed their child being "spirited". And then Elaina was born. NOW I get it!

Glad you're back...we missed ya!
