Hello, is this thing on?  I haven't been on here in a while.  That seems to be the recurring theme for the past year (or 2 or 3).  But life goes on, the world keeps turning and my kids keep getting older.  Since I've last posted, Laney had a birthday (she's now 12 and is kind of a braniac), Mike and I celebrated another anniversary (13 years later and we're still in love), Chloe had a birthday (she's now 10 and is getting all, you know, hormonal.  Heaven help us all.), and I celebrated my 33rd birthday.  I remember being young and stupid and thinking that people in their 30's were old.  If I could go back in time and punch that little witch in the face, I would.

So, we're still here.  We're busy.  Mike is in school full time, on top of working full time, on top of being a husband and father full time. We're still exploring our options with adoption.  I just saw the profile of the sweetest little girl from China with Down Syndrome and just wish she were part of our family today. yesterday. 

 That's it, I guess.  My baby will be 4 years old in a couple weeks.  I get it, they grow.  If they don't, something's wrong.  But it doesn't mean I have to like it.  Sometimes I think he looks like a tiny toddler.  That is, until I see an actual toddler, and I realize that he's not even close.  He's like a foot taller than a toddler.  Oh well, when we're at home where there are no toddlers around, he's a tiny toddler. 

So that's where we are.  School.  Work.  Eating.  Sleeping.  Pretending to have toddlers.  Now you're all caught up.

She's 12. Twelve.

New hairs

Oh, and I started working out 5 days a week.  The body pump class is my fave!!  The boxing class is not my fave.  But the shower after a boxing class is just about as amazing as that first shower after giving birth.  fyi.
