Playing catch up

I know, I know...I've been slackin on the blog. I have no excuse, other than...hmmm....let's see...

* I'm busy chasing a 3 1/2 year old around the house
* I'm trying to entertain a 3 1/2 year old WILD boy, who is OBVIOUSLY tired of being in the house
* About every 2-3 hours, I'm attached to a baby via my breast
* I'm changing A LOT of diapers...this kid poops A LOT!
* Laundry, laundry and more laundry...I forgot that little babies have A LOT of laundry!
* Dishes, dishes and more dishes...

Ok...so maybe I do have an excuse or ten :) The Banocy's are heading back to St Louis tomorrow morning, so I figured I'd better blog while I have extra hands around the house. I need to give Dorothy and John a big shout out...THANK YOU!!! It has been so great having them both here, not only to help me out, but to spend time with both Andrew and Jacob. Today, Andrew got to have a special lunch with GG and Papa at the Silver Diner. They had to drag him out of the house kicking and screaming to go (no exaggeration!), but once he was in the car, he dropped the "I don't wanna go" attitude and had a great time. He really needed this time alone without Jacob. In true Dorothy style, we also received a makeover on our basement and other places throughout the house while she was here. Where does she find the time...in between helping with the laundry, dishes, diapers, etc! Anyway...thank you SO much Dorothy and John for being here and helping us adjust to life with 2 boys!

We've had some exciting days (and nights!) since my last post. For starters, our kitchen became a lego train station over the weekend.
On Saturday, we piled into the car and headed over to the Schoener's for a BBQ. It's a good thing Dorothy is so petite...she had to squeeze in between the carseats in the backseat! Lauren remains ecstatic about being around Jacob! She washes her hands to hold him and then will not touch anything (I mean, anything!) until she has her hands on him. So responsible!

Yesterday, we officially welcomed Jacob (and all his bits-n-pieces) into the world, with his Bris and Naming Ceremony. For those of you who don't know, this is how us Jews perform a circumcision...in front of everyone, with an emotional ceremony. What more could a mom who's not even 2 weeks postpartum need?!?! Needless to say, it was quite a day. Both Andrew and Jacob fell asleep on the car ride home and then on GG and Papa when we got home...

Ok...so with as many pics as I posted tonight, I promise to try not to let more than a day go by without posting. Stay tuned for some cute pics of Andrew holding Jacob tonight...yes, he HELD him for the first time! Oooohhh...what a moment!
