Am I am bad mom if I don't have a big birthday party for my 2 year olds? I have been contemplating for a while what to do for the boys 2nd birthday. Since we really don't know anyone here yet and I hate to make people feel "obligated" to go to yet another birthday of a child who they don't know really I am just really torn of not having one. I was thinking of just having birthday cake with mommy and daddy and asking the neighbors if they wanted to come for cake. That way they wouldn't feel it was a birthday party and feel the need to bring something. Ooo...I hate this kind of stuff. I LOVE to have people over and stuff. I am just WAY out of practice since having the boys and would rather spend the cold (going to be down to 4 degrees tonight!) day at home with all my boys enjoying family time. We seem to have so little of that this last year and it will just be nice to just enjoy the time together instead. Then have some cake and ice cream and enjoy time with the new friends we are making here. Ahh...sounds good to me...think I have pretty much talked myself into it. Gee I love my blog sometimes...if for nothing else than just to talk stuff out in my own head!
Still not ready for Christmas. I don't think I am ever going to be ready to be honest. I think I have become a huge procrastinator on some levels and then I just run out of time on other levels. Then it becomes a cycle. I will say I haven't stressed out this holiday season. :) I think us all being sick so much these last few months has kind of helped. I just am so tired I don't care. Ha! But to be honest I would rather have the stress than being sick! We will play catch up this week and get everything done...we always do. Well, this year may be a little late for some things but I am sure they will understand. We are getting a little better each year as the boys become a little more self-sufficient. Learning to do everything again with toddlers has been interesting. But each day we get a little better.
Oh! Can I just say that Noah has been more himself the last 3 days than he has in weeks! I am SO THANKFUL!!!!!!!! I can't believe how much has changed in just 3 days. So I am guessing the ear thing has some merit to it. He has talked more, laughed and played more than he has in the past 2 months I think. I am just amazed. He is back to laughing and bringing books to you to read and wanting to actually play more. Whew...I feel oh so much better! Thank you to the very nice doctor who listened to us and actually did something to help instead of telling me it is a twin thing.
