Adjusting


Welp, it's been a little over three weeks since Bodie Bear came home. Having a second baby is a totally different experience. I was so freaked out over everything with Dylan. I had never been around a baby until he was born. This time it's so much easier... at least these early weeks. We're all getting in to a groove, and things are starting to run a little more smoothly....unless you count Dylan hitting the "terrible two's" head on. There's been a lot of "time out's" 'round these parts. His new favorite word (besides Mommy, and No) is "Mine". It's wierd, we don't use that word at home... and beyond playdates with Shannon Daisy, he's not really around other kids... so where the hell did he learn that word? Are their little brains just pre-wired to use "mine" and "no" in abundance once they hit two? aah, fun times. Here's a cute little picture of him swimming at my parent's house.

And here's the more devilish side... with me and Bodie

Along with Dyl's craziness, I've had a major bladder infection. So my crotch has been on fire. Plus a couple of blocked milk ducts. So my boobs have been in total pain. AND if I have to watch this guy for one more day, I'm going to puke...
It's been nice having Michael home with us. He took a month off of work to bond with Bodie, and help me out with managing two little boys. He goes back to work next week, and I'm really going to miss spending my days with him. It's been so great.
We got a couple of new pieces of art this past week. A David Choe piece, which I'll have to take a picture of, and a piece by Lilli Piri


"Sweet Pea" It's really delicate and beautiful. I love getting new artwork!
Sunday we're going to Jeff Soto's studio for a sneak peek at his upcoming show. I can't wait... I need to get out and see some inspiring artwork!

You do look great and we're glad you're settling in. Camp's almost over (yeehaw) and I'm so antsy to get over there!
I think "mine" really is hardwired at that age. it's when they start to comprehend ownership. like you are HIS mommy. anyway, they don't learn to "share" until after they learn to "own" - i think it's pretty natural for them to be little bastards that way.
and of course i always enjoy hearing about fire crotches and bloated boobs - thanks for that :-)
I love you. Kiss those boys for me!
