What's up with us

If it seems like I've been quiet lately, it's not without good reason. Lots o' stuff going on around here:

The Good:

-Two adorably cute kids who are getting more adorable as the days go by... and more exhausting. I seriously love these two, but... Oh. My. Damn. Why doesn't my three year old nap anymore? Or my 5 month old for that matter?

-We put an offer on a house. It is totally an amazing house. I love it so much I might just run away with it to some deserted island for the rest of our lives. Caper about in loin cloths and live off the land and sea.

Anyway, it's under contract right now, which brings me to...

The Bad:

-We have to find a buyer for our house. Also, we have to make our house presentable enough for said buyer to walk through our house. Easier said than done with my offspring, and one fairly neurotic dog underfoot.

The Ugly:

-There hasn't been much sleeping around these parts lately. Mattias has decided he likes to rock and roll all night, as well as party every day. It's been bad. Like, I want to run away bad. Or, I am going to go play in traffic so I can get hit by a car and rest in the hospital bad. We've also been dealing with high/low blood sugars during the night as well as night terrors with Elise. It is so freaking exhausting.

Soooo, that's it. Hopefully things will be getting back to normal on all fronts very soon.

Sounds like little Mattias has similar sleeping habits to David. When David was 5 months old though I didn't have D living in my house and my next oldest was 5 so she could do a lot on her own, we did not have night checks etc to deal with either but I do feel your pain just a little. I hope it gets better soon!

How exciting about the house! Yuck it's no fun to put your own house on the market and keep it "show ready" all the time! ;( we'll pray your house sells quickly!! So sorry about the whole sleeping thing! ;( I've got a great sleeping document I could send you that was very helpful in resolving Nathan's many sleep issues, but I certainly don't want to thrust it on you! It may or may not address where you are, but let me know if you want me to send it to you. ;)
