What to do?

Raegan is a great baby. She enjoys watching Peyton and she has started laughing and smiling more. She will just sit in her little chair for long periods of time. But I seriously think she is trying to kill me with sleep deprivation. It's not her fault. She's not purposfully waking up three and four times a night just for the heck of it. But this child has more gas than a whole family eating a gallon of beans. Mylicon doesn't help. I hear stories of babies who at two weeks old are sleeping through the night. If I get Raegan to sleep for four straight hours at night, I feel like I just conquered Mt. Everest. I'm still breastfeeding, doing everything right. I know that time passing by will improve the situation, but I may die before we get to that point!

A Dreary Sunday Morning

I'm home on a Sunday morning because Peyton has a cold and is teething, I have the cold, and as of last night, Raegan now has it. So we're just staying at home today. Arnold preached at a church this morning because they needed someone to fill in for them. My in-laws came down this weekend to help us pack and move. But then we found out on Friday that we would not be able to get the key until Nov. 30th, so we're just surrounded by a bunch of boxes and I have nothing to cook with. I guess we'll be eating a lot of sandwiches and take out this week!

As we get ready for the move, I've come to realize that even though I'm very excited, it's going to be a big change. I have been on the seminary campus, with the exception of a year, for seven years now! I got my master's at the seminary, Arnold and I met there, we moved in to our first apartment together there, and have had a family there. There's a lot of great memories within the gates of the campus. I will miss the community of the campus, great neighbors, and the park that is our backyard. I can't believe it's finally time to move on! I will be coming back to campus to work and to drop the kids off, but other than that, will have no business anymore with the seminary. It's been a great experience, and I'm going to miss it!

Family Outings and the Move

Family Outings
This weekend, our family, all four of us, went out to eat for the first time. We went to Pizza Hut, and it was a pleasant experience. Peyton loves food, and Raegan loves to sleep, so it worked out well. Also this lady at church commented on the fact that Raegan slept through the entire service and did not make one peep. It's great, I know, we could never take Peyton to "big church". Now if I could only get Raegan to start sleeping through the night.

The Move
My house looks like a big cardboard box because everywhere you look there are cardboard boxes ready to be packed. And some boxes that are already packed. We start moving in six days. Yipee! I am so ready. And I have to comment that it is so nice to have such great friends that are willing to help us pack, lift heavy stuff, and move! Thank you God for providing people to help us!

Two Different Sisters

I took the girls to the doctor last week and was suprised that Raegan is in the 25% for weight and height and Peyton is in the 75% for weight and 75-90% for height. Did I mention that they also seem to have two different personalities? It's amazing how sisters can be so different!

HHHMMMM...What can I get into next?

Work and Pics


Why the blogging break? Well, I did a little thing this week called going back to work. And it has been the hardest week ever...Raegan won't take bottles(still working on this one), Peyton having incredible meltdowns from the time we pick her up until the time we drop her off the next morning, Peyton waking us up and coming into our rooms at 6am, taking both girls to the doctor for shots, nothing to eat in the house and no time to fix anything, the house is a wreck, we need to start packing up the whole house, laundry piling high, Arnold's dissertation defense tomorrow...should I go on? Weekend where are you? haha

Here are some pictures from Halloween. I didn't buy anyone any costumes, we just dressed them up in cute Halloween outfits my grandmother bought them.

Okay, well I don't have the right pictures, so I will post the pictures in a few hours! Check back!
