When we finally got home, we force fed the kids a little snack (hopefully they'll sleep longer) and got them to sleep ALL AT THE SAME TIME! Right?! It is now 9:22 and the perfect and only time I have to update my blog.
I wish I could update this blog every day, but it might be another 3 months before I get another post up. I don't know if it is having three kids, or all boys, but I can't seem to come up for air. I am continually drowning in laundry, toys, diapers, mess, and noise noise noise. Our condo can't contain it all. It is a good thing we are moving soon; I just don't know how much longer I can handle this place. Jack started army crawling today, but I can't let him crawl on the carpet because who knows what disease he would pick up. I really think this is the week. The footings have been dug on the lot and I am crossing my fingers that the concrete will be poured in a few days.
Jack will be 6 months on Tuesday. He is a happy baby overall, but babies in general are hard. I still wake up 2-3 times with him every night. Starting solids has been rough - he can't seem to digest anything very well, so I might just keep nursing him until we figure it out. I've tried and tried (to tears) to get him to take a bottle, but every time, he looks at me like I'm torturing him. His colic has dissipated for the most part, and he is just getting cuter and cuter every day. I am thankful the days the go by. Every night, I pray for forgiveness for not being a better mom - for losing my temper, for my impatience, and ask that I will be better tomorrow. I just have to keep trying and I know that one day, I will be better. It might not come until these boy are all older, but it will come, and if I keep trying, they'll turn out all right.
