Tales from my life as a mom of 2 sons and 2 daughters

WOW so I'm slow and just realized that a shared a few pictures of the boys that I had previously shared the week before. LOL oops. Not that it matters , am beginning to wonder if anyone reads my blog at all LOL.
So let's see.. I have decided not to focus so much on the number on the scale but more on other things like how my clothes fit etc. Otherwise i'm going to drive myself insane. I did so my measurements and since I started measuring them back in June I've lost 5 1/2 inches off my waist, 2 off my hips, and 4 off my each thigh. I'd say that's pretty good :) So I am going to keep doing what I'm doing and stop stressing so much about the stupid scale. I went today and got on the depo shot again. We don't want to get pregnant right now since I'm starting nursing school and it worked well for me in the past so we'll try it out again. Orientation for school (which means getting my books and scrubs) is in exact 1 week. School starts in 11 days. I'm SO excited. And nervous. And anxious. And I can't wait!!!!!
Doug seems to be getting more hours at work now. Not sure if that's just because we changed his schedule to 5 hours instead of 7 in a day so he's getting all the clients at once or what. I don't think so but it seems that way. He will start getting deep tissue clients very soon. Everyone he has done deep tissue practicums with has raved about his pressure. So that should keep him busy and booked at work which is good because more bookings equals more money. His birthday is next month (26th) and our anniversary is the 10th (3 years). I'm hoping we'll be able to do something nice for it this year.
River's behavior seems a little better than it has been. He's listening better and not having as many fits but maybe it's just me not seeing them as much. Not sure. He continues to amaze me with how smart he is. I can't wait until next August when he is old enough for the preschool program (as long as he's potty trained by then) because I want to keep him growing mentally. Keep him challanged.
Journey is doing okay. He went Tuesday for his speech appointment. She agreed that he is tongue tied and that it needs to be clipped which means yet another referral to yet another specialist for evaluation. I'm so sick of appointments and doctors and evaluations. I know he has to be sick of them too. On Tuesday he wanted nothing to do with the therapy or the therapist. I can't say I blame him. I'm not sure I like her either. LOL He is 8 1/2 months old now. Time is flying by. In some ways he seems to have grown so much but in other ways., he still seems so little. He still trying to master crawling. He'll get up on his hands and knees and rock but can't seem to figure out how to go forward on hands and knees. However he's gettin faster at the army crawl and is starting to use his knees more to help him go forward so it shouldn't be too long. He's still not sitting up and he still has no teeth. The pediatrician said if he wasn't crawling and sitting up unassisted by 9 months she would refer him to a physical therapist for evaluation.. yeehaw.
I'm so afraid he won't live a normal life. He just seems to have so much going on :( I'm going to try not worry about it. Because it's not like I can do anything about it anyway.. Right? He has a speech appointment on Monday next week and a GI appointment on Friday next week. I'm eager for Friday's appointment as we should get the results of his bood work and allergy testing. I've been waiting for them. In some ways I hope they come back showing nothing and in some ways I hope they come back showing something as then we'll have an idea of why his tummy is having such a hard time handling foods. Still no word on the genetics people. I guess I'll call them tomorrow and see what's going on as it's now been almost 2 weeks since Journey got released from the hospital
