Welcome to Crazy Town

I think I have officially gone crazy. This last week, we found a nice family to rent our home. We feel good about the renting situation and decided to go for it. The only bad thing is that they need to move in ASAP, so that means we had to kick into high gear to get moved out. Walker came up from Utah with his parents on Friday, we packed up every last thing we own (in 1.5 days!) and he is now driving the big moving truck back down to Utah. I am staying at my parents for two weeks, while I wait for my doctor's appointment, and while Walker finds a place for us in Salt Lake. Then our little family can finally be together again. Yahoo! I am ready to put an end to this chapter of our lives!

Jamison has handled everything very well. He is now used to Walker coming and going for weekends, and is familiar with driving to the airport. He has become more clingy the last couple months, and I think it will be a relief when things finally settle down. And sorry we didn't get any Halloween pictures. Jamison absolutely refused to put on his cute monkey costume. I mean, he was kicking and screaming on the floor. Maybe next year.

Vivienne (AKA Miss Piggy) continues to grow and grow and grow. She still has her days and nights mixed up, which makes for a very tired mommy. We also had a visit from the dreaded mastitis fairy (commiserate with me, Mitzi) this last week. Why does it seem like everything happens at once?

A huge thank you to all who helped us pack and load our stuff. And an especially big thank you to my mother who has lived with me for the last 2.5 months and is now letting us live in her house.

And now I'm going to go take a nap while the kiddies are both asleep. Miracles upon miracles!

Liz I'm sorry things are so crazy for you. I know about the clingy thing. Jason started it when Jill came home. There are some days where I really get sick of hearing mommy. As sad as that is. I can't wait for you to all be together again. Only a few more weeks!!!!

Good luck, Liz. I hope the time passes quickly...and the masititis too. I know from experience that it is NO fun!

I am so sorry, Liz. It sounds like you aren't having much fun right now. You are very lucky to have your mom so close! You are in our thoughts and prayers. Good luck!!

Wow, CRAZY! As if child birth alone wasn't difficult enough! Katie moved within a week after having Aspen via C-section. She has threatened serious repurcussions if there is any hint of a move within months of her baby's birth this time! So glad you have had your mom by your side! We'll try to give you lots of support when you get down here! Hang in there and take lots of naps!

Man life is so crazy for you right now. I am excited for it to slow down for you. You should have called us, we could have helped you move. I'm glad you guys worked something out with your house.

I'm so sorry you got mastitis again. That's the worst. That just confirms my belief that some people definitely struggle more with nursing than others. I am playing it by ear if I am even going to nurse at all with my next one. Seriously. Good luck with everything and remember formula is your friend not your foe. Even if some people think it's the devil.
