I feel like I’ve been neglecting this blog (mostly because I’ve been spending my spare minutes posting on the other blog). I can’t believe it has actually been less than a week since I last posted. It feels like it’s been forever. It also feels like it’s been forever since we moved here. Did we really live somewhere else before? Hard to believe. Well, except for the box of moving blankets and other debris that we still need to get rid of. I keep telling people we’re pretty much settled, and Micah keeps reminding me that there are still a million things he’d like to do before he’ll feel at home here.
And with all the excitement I’ve neglected to mention that we now have two little bi-peds. Mr. Oliver has evolved. It’s fun. I like mobile babies. Then they can come to me rather than screaming at me until I have a chance to pick them up. Plus it’s adorable. I love watching him waddle around with his arms up in the air.
But what I really came here to say is: it’s almost halfway through September, the air is cooler, school is starting. Simon has some activities he is going to be involved in a few days a week, we’re thinking about joining the YMCA, the days are getting shorter, and before you know it, it’s going to be 2011. We still don’t know what any of our holiday plans are, but since Labor Day I’ve been feeling like I’m behind the times. Why haven’t I done my Christmas shopping? What are our Thanksgiving plans? Is it too late to get started on the boys’ Halloween costumes? (Do we even know what they’re going to be yet?) How is it possible that Oliver is almost 1 year old? Am I the only one who feels this urgency at the changing of the seasons?
